3. Types and purpose of cookies
Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be classified into:
- Session cookies: they expire when the user closes the browser.
- Persistent Cookies: they expire depending on when the purpose for which they serve is met (for example, so the user remains identified on the webpage and services thereof or when manually deleted).
Depending on their target, cookies can be classified as follows:
- Registration cookies (technical and custom): Registration cookies are generated once the user has registered or subsequently opened his session, and are used to identify the services with the following objectives:
- Keeping the user identified so that, if he closes a service, the browser or the computer and, at another time or another day, reenters the service, he will remain identified, thus facilitating browsing without having to identify himself again. This functionality can be deleted if the user presses “close session”, so that this cookie is removed and the next time the user enters the service he will have to start session to be identified.
- Check if the user is authorized to access certain services, for example, to participate in a contest.
- Analytic Cookies: Each time a User visits a service or information from the webpage or a tool from an external provider (Google Analytics, Comscore and others that could be added to this list if they vary in relation to current ones), he generates an analytic cookie on the user’s computer. This cookie, which is only generated during the visit, will be used on future visits to the webpage’s services to identify the visitor in an anonymous manner. The main objectives are:
- To allow anonymous identification of browsing users with the cookie (it identifies browsers and devices, not people) and hence the approximate number of visitors and trends over time.
- To anonymously identify the most visited content and, therefore, that which is most attractive to users.
- To know if the user that is accessing is new or if it is a repeat visit. Important: Unless the user decides to register for any service or content of the webpage, the cookie will never be associated with any personal data that can identify him. These cookies will only be used for statistical purposes to help optimization of the user experience on the webpage.
