1. What are cookies?
Likewise, the Web will be able to know all the services requested by the users, so that they will be able to facilitate or to offer information adapted to the tastes and preferences of each user.
2. What types of cookies exist?
Cookies, depending on their Permanence, can be divided into:
Session Cookies (Transient): These cookies are deleted when you close your browser and do not collect information from your computer. They typically store information in the form of a session ID that does not personally identify the user.
Persistent Cookies (Permanent or Stored): These cookies are stored on your hard drive until they expire (i.e., they are based on a set expiration date) or until you delete them. These cookies are used to collect identifying information about the user, such as browsing behavior or user preferences for a specific site.
Additionally, depending on their purpose, Cookies can be classified as follows:
Performance Cookies: This type of Cookie remembers your preferences for the tools found on the services, so you don't have to reconfigure the service each time you visit. This type of cookie is included as an example.
The video transmission speeds that are compatible with your browser.
Volume settings for video or audio players.
Geo-location cookies: These Cookies are used to find out which country you are in when you request a service. This Cookie is completely anonymous, and is only used to help target content to your location.
Logging Cookies: Logging Cookies are generated once a user has registered or subsequently logged in, and are used to identify you to services for the following purposes:
To keep the user identified so that, if he closes a service, the browser or the computer and at another time or another day he enters the service again, he will continue to be identified, thus facilitating his navigation without having to identify himself again. This functionality can be removed if the user presses the "close session" functionality, so that this Cookie is deleted and the next time the user enters the service he will have to log in to be identified.
Check if the user is authorized to access certain services, for example, to participate in a contest
Analytical Cookies: Every time a User visits a service, a tool from an external provider generates an Analytical Cookie on the User's computer. This Cookie, which is only generated during the visit, will be used in future visits to the Web Services to identify the visitor anonymously. The main objectives pursued are:
To allow the anonymous identification of the browsing users through the "Cookie" (it identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate counting of the number of visitors and their trend in time.
Identify anonymously the most visited content and therefore more attractive to users.
To know if the user who is accessing is new or repeats a visit.
Important: Unless the user decides to register in a service of the Web, the "Cookie" will never be associated with any other service.
