Here you will find detailed information about cookies: what cookies are, what kind of cookies this website uses, how you can disable them on your browser or how specifically you can block third-party cookies installation.
- What are cookies?
Cookies are files that are installed on the browser or on the user’s device (smartphone, tablet or smart TV) by websites or applications during navigation on the webpages or on the application. They are used to store information concerning their visit.
- Ensure that websites can function properly.
- Store your preferences, such as the language or the font size you have chosen.
- Know the user’s web browsing experience.
- Collect anonymous statistical information, such as which pages the user has visited or how long they have spent on the website.
- Types and purposes, and how do they work
Depending on their expiration period, cookies can be divided into session cookies and persistent cookies. The former expire when the user closes the browser. The latter expire when their purpose has been fulfiled (for instance, the purpose of keeping the user logged in on the website), or when they are manually deleted.
Aditionally, according to their purpose, cookies can be classified as follows:
Strictly necessary (technical): These are cookies that are essential for the website to work properly. They are usually generated when the user accesses the website or logs into it. They are used to identify the user on the website with the following purposes:
Keep the user logged in in such a way that they will still be identified in case they leave the website, browser or device, and return to the same website later. This facilitates navigation without the need of re entering identification data.
Check whether the user is authorised to access specific services or areas in the website.
Performance cookies: Used to enhance the browsing experience and optimise the functioning of the website. For instance, they are used to store settings related to services, or to save a purchase in a shopping cart.
Advertising cookies: Used to retrieve information about the ads showed to the website users. They can be classified into two types:
Anonymous cookies: They only collect information on advertising spaces that are shown on the website, regardless of the user that accesses the website —i.e. without specifically identifying the user.
Custom cookies: They are used by a third party to collect personal data of the website user in order to customise advertising.
Geolocation cookies: Used to learn in which country or region the user is when accessing a website service. The purpose is to offer contents or services according to location.
Analysis cookies: These cookies collect information on the user’s browsing experience on the website —usually on an anonymous basis, although they also occasionally allow to uniquely and clearly identify the user with the purpose to obtain reports on their interests in the services offered by the website.
