Types of cookies
There are two kinds of cookies, depending on the entity that manages the domain which sends the cookies and the data obtained: first-party cookies and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are those that are sent and managed exclusively to improve browsing the Website. While browsing this Website, third-party cookies can also be set (for example, when clicking on social media buttons or watching videos hosted by another website). Third-party cookies are set by a domain other than this Website. It is not possible to access the data stored on the cookies of other websites while browsing.
Cookies can also be classified according to the amount of time that they are kept in the user’s browser: session cookies and permanent cookies. Session cookies expire when users leave the page or close the browser. In other words, they are only active while browsing the Website and they are deleted from the computer when you leave. Permanent cookies expire when their purpose is achieved or when they are manually deleted. They have a deletion date and are normally used for online purchases, customization or registration, so the user doesn’t have to constantly type in their password.
Lastly, there is another classification of five types of cookies according to how they are used: technical cookies, customization cookies, analysis cookies, advertising cookies, and behavioral advertising cookies.
