MORE INFORMATION ABOUT COOKIES

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a harmless text file that is stored in your browser when you visit almost any web page. It is used for the website to be capable to remember your visit when you return to browse the same page. Although many people do not know it, cookies have been used for 20 years, when the first browsers for the World Wide Web appeared.

What is NOT a cookie?

It is not a virus, or a Trojan, or a worm, or spam, or spyware, or it does not open pop-ups.

What information does a cookie store?

Cookies do not usually store sensitive information about you, such as credit cards or bank details, photographs, your ID or your personal information, etc. They keep data of technical nature, personal preferences, content personalization, etc.

The web server does not associate you as a person; it associates your web browser. In fact, if you regularly browse with Internet Explorer and try to navigate through the same website with Firefox or Chrome, you will see that the web does not realize that you are the same person because it is really associating the browser, and not the person.

What kind of cookies are there?

  • Technical cookies: These are the most basic ones and allow, among other things, to know whether a human or an automated application is browsing, whether an anonymous or a registered user is navigating… basic tasks for the operation of any dynamic web.
  • Analysis cookies: They collect information about the type of navigation you are doing, the sections you use the most, products consulted, time zone of use, language, etc.
