What are cookies?
Cookies are small temporary files that are created on the user's device (computer, phone, tablet, etc.) when you visit a website, and which allow the website to store or retrieve information when you browse, for example, to save your preferences or to recognise you on subsequent visits, as well as to obtain information about your browsing habits.
What are cookies used for?
The most common uses or purposes are:
- Essential technical cookies. They are used to manage the browsing flow within the website or to keep the user connected to it. If they are disabled, it is possible that some sections of the website may not function correctly.
- Personalisation cookies. Necessary to remember certain user preferences.
- Analytical cookies. They help us and third parties to collect information about the origin of the users and their browsing on the website, for the purpose of statistical analysis in order to improve the structure and content.
- Advertising cookies. Used to manage the advertisements that appear on the website, decide the content or frequency of the advertisements.
- Behavioural advertising cookies. They help to collect the user's browsing habits to create a profile of their interests and to show ads tailored to them.
- Social sharing cookies. These are necessary to identify the user in their social networks and thus allow them to share content.
What do we mean by technologies similar to cookies?
Similar technologies are understood to be any type of data storage and retrieval mechanism used on the user's device to obtain information. The most common include:
- Browser local storage. Some websites use local storage called "sessionStorage" and "localStorage", as well as the browser's indexed database, to store information;
- The local storage of browser plug-ins, such as Flash local storage ("Flash Local Shared Objects") or Silverlight local storage ("Isolated Objects").
- Web beacon' is a tracking technique that consists of inserting an image on a web page (or in an e-mail) hosted on an Internet server so that when the browser or e-mail program connects to that server to download and display the image, the connection is logged. This makes it possible to know that the user has viewed the web page or e-mail. Sometimes this image is very small or transparent so that the user is not aware of its existence.
- Fingerprinting" techniques that combine information obtained from the browser or browsing equipment to distinguish a user on successive visits to different websites.
What are third-party cookies and who are the recipients of the information?

How long do cookies or similar technologies remain active?
Depending on their permanence or time of activity, we can differentiate between:
- Temporary session cookies; they remain stored in the browsing equipment until the user leaves the website; the browser deletes them at the end of the browsing session.
