What are cookies?
Cookies are data about the user of a website that are stored on the user’s computer. The information is retrieved when you browse by visiting the same website.
There are various types of cookies, depending on who manages them and the computer or domain from which the cookies are sent and process the data obtained. We can distinguish between:
Own cookies: These are sent to the user’s terminal from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself and from which the requested service is provided.
Third-party cookies: These are sent to the user’s terminal from a computer or domain not managed by the publisher but by another entity that processes data obtained through cookies.
If cookies are installed from a computer or domain managed by the publisher, but the information collected is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered as own cookies.
Types of cookies according to the duration they remain active
According to the duration they remain active on the terminal, we can distinguish:
Session cookies: These types of cookies are designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a website. They are usually used to store information relevant for providing the service requested by the user on a single occasion (e.g., a list of purchased products).
Persistent cookies: These are cookies where the data remains stored on the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the cookie owner, ranging from a few minutes to several years.
Types of cookies according to their purpose
Based on the purpose for which data obtained through cookies is processed, we can distinguish between:

Examples include controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, accessing restricted areas, remembering order elements, completing purchase processes, making registration or event participation requests, using security elements while browsing, storing content for video or audio dissemination and sharing content through social networks.
Preference or personalisation cookies: These allow the user to access the service with some general predefined characteristics based on a series of criteria on the user’s terminal, such as language, the type of browser through which they access the service, the regional configuration from which they access the service, etc.
Analysis or measurement cookies: These enable the tracking and analysis of user behaviour on linked websites. The information collected through this type of cookies is used to measure the activity of websites, applications or platforms and to create browsing profiles of the users of said sites, applications and platforms, in order to make improvements based on user service usage analysis.
