1. Definition and function of cookies
2. Types of cookies
Cookies can be classified into three main blocks, depending on the area of study:
a) Types of cookies depending on the entity that manages them
Depending on the entity that manages the domain of the website from where the cookies are sent and where the data obtained are processed, there are two kinds of cookies:
– First-party cookies: Cookies sent to the user’s terminal from the website they are visiting.
– Third-party cookies: Cookies sent to the user’s system from a domain that is not managed by the owner, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies (for example, Google). Since it is these third parties that implement these cookies, they are also responsible for blocking and uninstalling them.
b) Types of cookies depending on the length of time they are active in the device
Cookies can be divided into two types according to the length of time they are hosted and activated on the user’s device:
– Session cookies: Designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a web page. These cookies are stored on the device when the user’s browsing until session ends.
– Persistent cookies: Designed to remain active on the device for periods lasting from a few minutes to several years. The data remain stored on the device and can be accessed and processed for the time decided by the person responsible for the cookies.
c) Types of cookies according to their function
Depending on their function, there are four types of cookies:
– Technical cookies: They show, for example, whether users have visited the website in the past and accepted or rejected cookies, and identify them when they connect to the website.
– Preference cookies: These cookies allow the presentation of the website to be adapted to the user’s preferences – for example, according to the language used, the resolution of the device, the browser used, etc. In short, they improve the user experience.
– Analytical cookies: Depending on the user’s preferences, these cookies make it possible to generate statistical information and assess the volume of visits, web traffic, measurements and use of the different elements on the website, in order to improve the site and the services.
– Marketing or advertising cookies: These cookies are used in a general way to obtain a user profile in order to identify their preferences and show targeted advertising on demand. A profile can be created of a user and their interests to show personalized content that is relevant to them.
