What types of cookies are used?
Two types of cookies may be used on sites: ‘session cookies’ and ‘persistent cookies’.
- session cookies: these are temporary cookies that remain on your device until you leave the site.
- persistent cookies: these are cookies that remain on your device for much longer or until you delete it manually (how long the cookie remains on your device will depend on the ‘lifetime’ of the cookie in question and your browser settings).
Some of the pages you visit may also collect information through ‘pixel tags’ (also known as ‘clear gifs’) that may be shared with third parties who directly assist in the promotion and development of the websites. For instance, information on the use of websites related to people visiting the sites may be shared with advertising agencies to optimally target banner advertisements on the websites. Another subdivision of cookie types – indicated by the Data Protection Authority – is between Technical Cookies, Profiling Cookies, First-Party Cookies and Third-Party Cookies.
- Technical cookies: these are cookies that serve to carry out navigation or to provide a service requested by the user. They are not used for any other purpose and are normally installed directly by the website owner. Without the use of such cookies, certain operations could not be carried out or would be more complex and/or less secure, such as home banking activities (viewing account statements, bank transfers, bill payments, etc.), for which cookies, which allow the user to be identified and maintained within the session, are indispensable.
- Profiling cookies: these are the cookies used to track the user’s browsing on the web and create profiles on their tastes, habits, choices, etc. With these cookies, advertising messages can be sent to the user’s terminal in line with the preferences already expressed by the user when browsing online.
- First-part cookies, i.e. cookies generated and managed directly by the operator of the website on which the user is browsing.
- Third-party cookies, which are generated and managed by parties other than the operator of the website on which the user is browsing (by virtue, as a rule, of a contract between the website owner and the third party)
