What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are used to store small pieces of information. They are stored on your device when the website is loaded on your browser. These cookies help us make the website function properly, make it more secure, provide better user experience, and understand how the website performs and to analyse what works and where it needs improvement.

Cookies do not store personal data most of the times. The website can consult the cookies stored in your browser to identify the browser and associate it with a user but never identify a person.

Cookies are neither a virus, nor Trojans, nor warms, nor spam, nor spyware. They cannot open pop-up windows either.

Depending on the type of cookie, they are used for different purposes: remember access data (email and password) so the user does not have to introduce them in each webpage, remember the articles put in the cart or analyse the user’s navigation habits in order to customize the website content or track the user for statistical analysis.

What types of cookies exist?

Cookies can be classified according to 3 criteria: their purpose, their provenance or the time they remain active. Here we explain the different types of cookies the user can find on the internet, but they are not necessarily all the types of cookies we use in our domain.

Cookies according to their purposes

Regarding this criterion, there are:

  • Technical cookies. The can be necessary for the correct functioning of the website or just functional to optimize its performance:
    • Strictly necessary. These cookies are essential for you to browse the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the site or allow web shops to hold items in the cart while shopping online. While it is not required to obtain consent for these cookies, what they do and why they are necessary should be explained to the user.<br>
    • Preferences and functional. These cookies allow a website to remember choices you have made in the past, like what language you prefer or what your user name and password are so you can automatically log in. Others enable certain functionalities, such as embedded content from other sites, like YouTube videos.
  • Analytics or statistics. These cookies collect information about the use of a website, like the number of users or what pages where visited. None of this information can be used to identify the user. Their only purpose is to improve website functions. This may include third-party cookies from analytics services.
  • Advertising or marketing cookies. These cookies track the user’s online activity to help advertisers deliver more relevant advertisements. They can share that information with other organizations or advertisers. These are persistent cookies and almost always of third-party provenance.

Cookies according to their provenance

Here, we can find two types:

  • First-party cookies. Managed by the website which is being visited. This normally includes the technical cookies and the analytics.
  • Third-party cookies. Enabled by other domains which are not being visited. These might appear when adding a plug-in such as a chatbot, social networks plug-ins or advertisements. Others might be for statistical analysis.

Cookies according to their duration

Again, we find two types:

  • Session. These cookies are temporary and expire once browser is closed (or the session ends).
  • Persistent. All cookies that remain on the browser until they are erased either by the user or by the browser when the due date arrives. Their duration vary, from 1 second to 10 year. There are some that last even more.
