What is a cookie?

A cookie is a harmless text file that is stored in your browser when you visit almost any website. The usefulness of cookies consists of making the website remember your visit when you browse it a second time. Although many people don't know it, cookies have been used for over 20 years, when the first World Wide Web browsers appeared.

It is not a virus, a Trojan, a worm, spam or spyware, nor opens pop-up windows.

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 personal information, etc. The data they store are of a technical nature, personal preferences, content customization, etc.

The web server identifies your web browser, instead of you as a person. In fact, if you normally use Internet Explorer and try to browse the same website using Firefox or Chrome you will see that the website does not realize you are the same person, because it is actually associating the browser, not the person.

What types of cookies are there?

  • Technical cookies: They are the most basic and, among other things, know whether a Human or an automated application is navigating, or whether the user is anonymous or registered. Those are fundamental tasks for any dynamic website.
  • Analysis cookies: They gather information about the type of navigation, frequently visited sections, products, time zone, language, etc.
  • Advertising cookies: They show advertising depending on your navigation, country of origin, language, etc.

What are proprietary and third-party cookies?

Own cookies are those generated by the web page visited and third-party cookies are those generated by external services or providers such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, etc.
