2. WHAT ARE COOKIES?
In accordance with the provisions of Article 22.2 of Law 34/2002 of 11 July, on services of the information society and electronic commerce (hereinafter, the “LSSICE”), cookies are data storage and retrieval devices used in the terminal equipment of a User for the purpose of storing information and retrieving information already stored.
3. WHAT ARE THEY USED FOR?
Cookies have a very important function since thanks to them service providers obtain data related to Users that can later be used, among other purposes, for the provision of specific services, to disseminate advertising, or as the basis for the development of new products and services.
4. TYPES OF COOKIES THAT CAN BE DISTINGUISHED
Cookies can be grouped into three main categories according to the entity that manages them, their purpose, and the time they remain activated:
A) Entity that manages the cookies
Depending on the entity that manages the cookies, a distinction is made between:
a) Own cookies: these are sent to the User’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the Publisher and from which the service is provided to the User.
b) Third-party cookies: are those sent to the User’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the Publisher, but by another entity that handles the data obtained through the cookies. Also included are those cookies that are served from a computer or domain managed by the Publisher, but whose information collected is managed by another entity that uses it for its own purposes.
B) Purpose of cookies
Depending on the purpose of the cookies, a distinction is made between the following types of cookies. There are cookies that can have more than one purpose, and in this case they are called multipurpose cookies.
a) Technical cookies: are those that allow the user to navigate through the website or application and use the different options or services that exist therein (among others, those that allow the management and operation of the website, those that identify a session, or those that remember the elements that make up an order). These cookies do not require the User’s consent as they are exempt from the obligations established in article 22 of the LSSICE.
b) Personalization cookies: are those that allow to remember information so that the User accesses the service with certain characteristics that can differentiate their experience from that of other Users (for example, selection of the language or the number of results to be shown when the User performs a search). If the User chooses these characteristics, these cookies do not require the User’s consent as they are exempt from the obligations established in Article 22 of the LSSICE.
c) Analysis cookies: these are the ones that allow to quantify the number of Users and to carry out an analysis of the use of a service in order to measure its interest. The information collected through these is used to measure the activity of the website, in order to introduce improvements based on the analysis of the data of the use made by the Users.
d) Behavioral advertising cookies: are those that store information on the behavior of users obtained through continuous observation of their browsing habits, which allows the development of a specific profile to display advertising based on such behavior.
C) Time they remain activated
Depending on how long the cookies remain activated, a distinction is made between
a) Session Cookies: these are used to collect and store data while the User is accessing the website, data that is only relevant for the provision of the service requested by the User on a single occasion (e.g. an order), and they disappear when the session ends.
b) Persistent cookies: are those in which data is stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed by the person responsible for the cookie for a defined period of time.
