- What are cookies?
Cookies are files that websites or applications install on your browser or device (smartphone, tablet or connected TV) as you navigate the pages of the website or application, and serve to store information about your visit.
- Ensure that the website pages can function correctly.
- Store preferences, such as the choice of language or font size.
- Track the user’s browsing experience.
- Compile anonymous statistical information, such as which pages the user has visited or how much time was spent on the website.
- Type, purpose and operation
Depending on their permanence, cookies may be divided into session or persistent cookies. The former expire when the user closes the browser. The latter expire when the purpose they serve has been met (e.g. so that the user remains identified on the website) or when manually deleted.
Additionally, depending on their purpose, cookies may be classified as follows:
- Strictly necessary (Technical) cookies: these are essential for the proper functioning of the site. They are usually generated when the user accesses or logs on to the website and are used to identify you on the website for the following purposes:
- To continue to identify the user, if you leave the site, the browser or device and return at another time to access the website, you will continue to be identified, thereby facilitating browsing without having to identify yourself again.
- To check whether the user is authorized to access certain services or areas of the website.
- Performance cookies: these are used to improve the browsing experience and optimize website operations, such as storing service configurations, or storing purchases in a shopping cart.
- Anonymous: these only collect information about advertising spaces shown on the website, regardless of the user accessing the website, i.e. without explicitly identifying the user.
- Custom: these gather personal information on the website user via a third party company, to customize such advertising spaces.
- Geo-location cookies: these cookies are used to ascertain which country or region users are located in when accessing a website service in order to provide content and services appropriate to their location.
- Analytics cookies: these gather information about the user’s browsing experience on the website, usually anonymously, but sometimes also to identify the user both uniquely and unambiguously in order to obtain information about user interests in the services provided by the website.
- Disabling cookies
If users so desire, they may stop accepting browser cookies or stop accepting cookies from a particular service. All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. These settings are usually found under the “Options” or “Preferences” menu on your browser.

- Other third party tools, available on-line, which enable users to detect the cookies on each website they visit and take action to block them or not (e.g. Ghostery: http://www.ghostery.com/privacy-statement).
- What happens when you disable cookies?
Some features and services may be disabled or behave differently than expected, for example, remaining unidentified, keep purchases in the “shopping cart” on an e-commerce service or receiving information targeted to the user’s location, among others.
