What are cookies and what are they used for

A cookie is a file that is downloaded to your computer, tablet, smartphone or any other device when you access certain websites. Among other purposes, cookies enable a website to collect and store information about the browsing habits of a particular user or his or her device, and, depending on the information contained in the cookies and the way in which the device is used, they may also be used to recognise the user.  Cookies cannot damage your device in any way. In fact, when cookies are active, they actually help to identify and resolve potential errors.

Identification of cookies

In the text below, cookies are classified into various categories. It should nevertheless be noted that the same cookie may fall into more than one category..

Types of cookies depending on the entity that manages them

The following cookies can be distinguished according to the entity that manages the device or domain from which the cookies are sent and how the data obtained is processed:

•    Own cookies: These are cookies sent to the user's terminal from a computer or domain managed by the editor itself, from which the service requested by the user is provided.

•    Third-party cookies: These are cookies sent to the user's terminal from a computer or domain that is not managed by the editor, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies.

 If the cookies are installed from a computer or domain managed by the editor itself but the information collected by the cookies is managed by a third party, then the cookies shall not be considered own cookies.

Types of cookies based on how long they remain active

Cookies can be categorised as follows, according to how long they remain active on the terminal equipment:

•    Session cookies: These cookies are designed to collect and store data only while the user accesses a web page. They are normally used to store information which is only of interest during the provision of the service requested by the user, on one specific occasion (e.g. a list of purchased products).

•     Persistent cookies: These are a type of cookie in which data remains stored on the terminal equipment and can be accessed and processed for a defined period by the manager of the cookie. This period can range from a few minutes to several years.

Types of cookies according to their purpose

The following types of cookies can be distinguished according to the purpose for which the data obtained through the cookies is used:

•    Technical cookies: These are cookies that enable the user to navigate a website, platform or application and to access various options or services offered therein, e.g. control traffic and communicate data, identify the session ID, access restricted areas, consult the individual components of an order, carry out the purchase process for orders, process requests for registration or participation in an event, use security elements while browsing, store content for video or sound broadcasts or share content through social networks.

•    Customisation cookies: These cookies enable the user to access the service using some general default settings taken from various settings on the user's terminal, e.g. language, type of browser and regional settings used to access the service, regional settings used to access the service, etc.

•    Analysis cookies: These cookies enable their manager to monitor and analyse the behaviour of users of the websites to which the cookies are linked. The information collected by these cookies is used to measure activity on websites, applications or platforms and to create browsing profiles for their users in order to institute improvements through analysis of data relating to how users are employing the service.

•    Third-party advertising cookies: These cookies allow advertising spaces to be managed as effectively as possible. These cookies store information on users' behaviour obtained through continual observation of their browsing habits, thus enabling specific profiles to be developed in order to display advertising based on these habits.

Our Website uses own and third-party cookies that enable us to store and access information relating to the language and browser type used and other general default user settings, as well as to monitor and analyse users' activities with the aim of improving and providing our services as efficiently and in as customised a manner as possible.
