What are cookies?


How do we use cookies?

Types of cookies

As we said, web cookies, these small pieces of information that are stored on our device while we surf the web, are much more than simple activity trackers. They come in different shapes and sizes, each designed with a specific purpose ranging from improving user experience to facilitating advertising tracking.
Thus, among the most common types of cookies we can find:

Session cookies

These web cookies are temporary and are automatically deleted when the user closes the browser. They are mainly used to track user actions during a particular session on the website, such as keeping items in a shopping cart while browsing different pages.

Persistent cookies

Unlike session cookies, persistent cookies remain on the user's device even after closing the browser. They have a specific expiration date and may store information such as usernames, passwords, and website preferences for future visits.

First and third party cookies

First-party cookies are those set by the website the user is visiting, while third-party cookies are set by a different domain than the site being visited. Third-party cookies are commonly used to track user activity on various websites in order to provide personalized advertising and behavioral analysis.

Technical cookies

These web cookies are necessary for the basic functioning of the website and do not require the consent of the user. They may include session cookies, authentication cookies and security cookies.

Performance cookies

These web cookies collect information about how users interact with a website, such as which pages they visit most often and if they experience errors. The information collected is used to improve the performance and user experience of the site.

Functionality cookies

These cookies allow a website to remember the choices a user makes, such as their preferred language or the region in which they are located. This allows for a more personalized and efficient user experience.

Advertising and tracking cookies

Finally, these web cookies are used to track user activity in order to offer targeted and relevant advertising. They may collect information about browsing habits, purchasing preferences and other data to create user profiles and target specific advertisements.
It is important to note that web cookies are not computer programs and cannot execute code or transmit viruses. However, some people have privacy and security concerns in relation to the use of cookies, particularly in relation to tracking the user's online activity. For this reason, the new Consent Mode v2 regulation, which we will go into in detail below, allows users to control cookies; being able to customize preferences, accept or reject them.
