What types of cookies are there?

Broadly speaking, there are five types of cookies:

  • Technical cookies:

These are most basic cookies. They allow users to browse a website, platform or application and use the different options and services available on it, for example controlling data traffic and communication, identifying the session, accessing restricted sections, remembering order elements, completing the order purchase process, registering for an event, using security elements while browsing, storing content to broadcast videos or sound, and sharing content on social media.

  • Personalisation cookies: 

Allow the user to access the service with certain predefined general characteristics based on a series of criteria on the user’s device, such as language, the type of browser being used to access the service, regional settings, etc.

  • Analysis cookies:

Allow the controller to monitor and analyse the behaviour of the users of the websites they are linked to. The information collected by this type of cookie is used to measure activity on websites, applications or platforms and to create browsing profiles on the users of said websites, applications and platforms for the purpose of making improvements based on analysing data on how the users make use of the service.

  • Advertising cookies:

Allow the management, in the most efficient way possible, of any advertising space which the controller has included on a web page, application or platform from which the requested service is provided, based on criteria like edited content or the frequency at which adverts are shown.
