  1. What types of cookies are there?

Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into:

– “Session Cookies”: the first expire when the user closes the browser.

– “Persistent Cookies”. The second expire depending on when the purpose for which they serve is fulfilled (for example, to keep the user identified in the Services) or when they are manually deleted.

Additionally, depending on their purpose, Cookies can be classified as follows:

– Performance Cookies: this type of Cookie remembers your preferences for the tools found in the Services, so you do not have to reconfigure the Service each time you visit. By way of example, this typology includes:

– Video streaming speeds that are compatible with your browser.

– Geo-location Cookies: These Cookies are used to find out what country you are in when you request a service. This Cookie is completely anonymous, and is only used to help target content to your location.

Registration Cookies: Registration Cookies are generated once the user has registered or subsequently logged in, and are used to identify you in the services with the following objectives:

– To keep the user identified so that, if you close a service, the browser or the computer and at another time or another day re-enter that service, you will continue to be identified, thus facilitating your navigation without having to identify yourself again. This functionality can be deleted if the user clicks on the “close session” functionality, so that this Cookie is deleted and the next time the user enters the service he/she will have to log in to be identified.

– Check if the user is authorized to access certain services, for example, to participate in a contest.

– Analytical Cookies: Each time a User visits a service, a tool from an external provider generates an analytical Cookie on the User’s computer.

This Cookie, which is only generated during the visit, will be used in future visits to the Web Services to anonymously identify the visitor. The main objectives pursued are:

– To allow the anonymous identification of browsing users through the “Cookie” (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate counting of the number of visitors and their trend over time.

– Identify anonymously the most visited content and therefore more attractive to users.

– To know if the user who is accessing the site is new or a repeat visitor.

– Important: Unless the user decides to register for a Web service, the “Cookie” will never be associated with any personal data that can identify him/her. These Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes to help optimize the user experience on the site.

Among others, it stores the duration or frequency of display of advertising positions, the interaction with them, or the user’s browsing patterns and / or compartments as they help to form a profile of advertising interest.

– Third-party advertising cookies: In addition to the advertising managed by the Web in its Services, the Web offers its advertisers the option of serving ads through third parties (“AdServers”).
