1. What are cookies and why are cookies used?

Cookies are data files that are downloaded to the user’s computer/smartphone/tablet when the user enters certain web pages.

Cookies enable the storage of certain data about the user device or browsing. The data are updated and recovered by the party responsible for the installation for a number of different purposes. For example, to obtain information about the browsing habits of the user or about their equipment, to see which pages they have visited, the length of connection time, the city to which the IP address used to enter the Web is allocated, the number of recidivism of the visits, the length of time of the visit, the browser or operator or type of terminal from which the visit is made, to analyze the operation of a web page, to detect technical problems, etc. In addition, depending on the information they contain and the way in which the terminal is used, cookies may be used to recognize the user.

In addition, there are other mechanisms and technologies for storing this type of information. This Web does not use tracking pixels or beacons or fingerprinting.


2. What types of cookies are there?

Cookies are classified into three categories: according to the entity that manages the equipment or domain from which the cookies are sent and that processes the data; according to the period of time they remain active in the terminal equipment; and according to the purpose for which the data obtained is processed.

Depending on the origin, cookies are classified as:

  1. a) First-party cookies: cookies sent to the terminal equipment of the user from a device or domain managed by the editor and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
  2. b) Third-party cookies: cookies sent to the terminal equipment of the user from a device or domain that is not managed by the editor, but by a third party that processes the data obtained via the cookies.


Based on their duration, cookies may be:

  1. a) Session cookies: cookies designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a web page.

 According to their purpose, cookies are classified into:

  1. a) Technical cookies: cookies that allow the user to browse a website and use the different options or services included on these, including those cookies used by the editor to allow operation and management of the website and enable its functions and services (identifying the session, accessing restricted access sections, remembering the items added to their cart, completing the payment process, managing payment, etc.)
  2. b) Preference or personalisation cookies: cookies that allow information to be remembered, so that the user may access the service under certain conditions that distinguish their experience from that of other users (language, number of search results to be displayed, region from which the service is accessed, etc.).
  3. c) Analytics or measurement cookies: cookies that allow the cookies manager to
    perform follow-up and analyses of user behaviour at the websites to which such cookies are linked; this includes a quantitative measurement of the impact of an advertisement.
