What Are Cookies?
In computing, cookies are activity logs that allow the Company to know about the activities you carry out as a user and client and their purpose is to establish metrics about the use of the web site and the contents most often visited, commonly known as “the user experience”.
Types of Cookies
Cookies can be classified according to different criteria into the following categories:
Depending on who issued the cookies:
- Own cookies: these cookies are sent to the user’s terminal from equipment or a domain managed by the web site publisher (in this case, the Company) and used to render the service requested by the user.
- Third-party cookies: these cookies are sent to the user terminal from equipment or a domain that is not managed by the web site publisher, but rather by another entity that processes the data obtained from its cookies.
Depending on the cookies’ life-cycle:
- Session cookies: these are temporary cookies that remain in your browser’s cookies file until you leave the web page, so none of them get recorded on the user’s hard drive. The information contained through these cookies is used to analyse traffic patterns on the web site. In the long run, this enables us to provide a better experience in order to improve our contents and facilitate the site’s use.
- Permanent cookies: these are stored on your hard drive and our web reads them every time you visit our site. A permanent cookie includes a predefined expiry date when the cookie will stop working. We generally use them to facilitate purchase and registration services.
Depending on the purpose for which the cookies are used:
- Technical cookies: these enable the user to browse a particular web page, a platform, or application and to use a different options or services available on them, such as, for example, by controlling traffic and data communications, identifying your session, accessing areas with restricted access, remembering the items making up an order, completing the purchase process for your orders, requesting registration or your participation in an event, using security elements while browsing, storing contents for the dissemination of video or sound files, or for sharing contents on social media.
- Customization cookies: these are cookies that allow the user to access the service with certain predefined general characteristics depending on a number of criteria on the user’s terminal such as, for example, the preferred language, the type of browser used to access the service, the regional setup of the device used to access the service, etc.
- Analytical cookies: these enable the persons responsible for the cookies to monitor and analyse the behaviour of users on the websites to which the cookies are related. The information collected by analytical cookies is used to measure the activity of the web site, application or platform and to draw up browsing profiles for the users of these sites, applications and platforms so as to implement improvements as a results of analysing service users’ data.
- Advertising cookies: these enable the most effective possible management of advertising spaces, if any, that the publisher has included on the web site, application, or platform from which to render the service requested, on the basis of such criteria as the content published or the frequency with which different advertisements are shown.
- Behavioural advertising cookies: these enable the most effective possible management of advertising spaces, if any, that the publisher has included on the web site, application, or platform from which to render the service requested. These cookies store information about users’ behaviour through the ongoing observation of their browsing habits, thus enabling the development of a specific profile in order to show relevant advertising. Similarly it is possible that, after visiting a particular web page or opening an email in which an advertisement is included or a promotion on our products or services, a cookie may be installed on your browser in order to indicate to us to show you subsequently advertising related with the search you just carried out, or to carry out a check of our advertisements in connection with, for example, the number of times that these are viewed, where they appear, when they are seen, etc.
