1. What are cookies?
Likewise, the Web may know all the services requested by users, so that they can provide or offer adequate information to the tastes and preferences of each user.
2. What types of cookies exist?
Cookies can be divided into:
- Session: They expire when the user closes the browser.
- Persistent: They expire depending on when the objective for which they serve is fulfilled (for example, so that the user remains identified in the Services) or when they are manually deleted.
Additionally, depending on their Objective, Cookies can be classified as follows:
- Performance: This type of Cookie remembers your preferences so you do not have to reconfigure the settings every time you visit.
- Geo-location: These Cookies are used to find out what country you are when a service is requested. This Cookie is completely anonymous, and is only used to help orient the content to its location.
- Registration: Registration cookies are generated once the user has registered or subsequently opened their session, and they are used to identify them in the services with the following objectives:
- 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 suppressed if the user presses the "log out" functionality, so that this Cookie is deleted and the next time the user enters the service the user 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 computer. This Cookie that is only generated in the visit, will serve in future visits to the Web Services to identify the visitor anonymously. The main objectives pursued are:
- Allow anonymous identification of navigating 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.
- Know if the user who is accessing is new or repeats visit.
- 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. These Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that help to optimize the experience of the Users on the site.
