What are cookies?
Cookies are data about the user of a website that are stored on the user's computer and the information is retrieved when you browse the same website.
There are several types of cookies, depending on who manages them, and the computer or domain from which the cookies are sent and process the data obtained, we can know or distinguish between them:
Own cookies: These are those that are sent to the user's terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the same publisher and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
Third-party cookies: These are those that are sent to the user's terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the publisher, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through cookies.
In the event that cookies are installed from a computer or domain managed by the same publisher, but the information collected through them is managed by a third party, they can not be considered as their own cookies.
Types of cookies according to the length of time they remain activated
Depending on the length of time they remain activated in the terminal equipment we can distinguish:
Session cookies: These are a type of cookie designed to request and store data while the user is accessing a web page. They are usually used to store information that is only of interest to keep for the provision of the service requested by the user on a single occasion (eg a list of purchased products).
Persistent cookies: These are a type of cookie in which the data is still stored on the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the person responsible for the cookie, and which can range from a few minutes to several years.
