b) Typology, purpose and operation of Cookies:

Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into session or permanent cookies. The first expire when the User closes the browser. The second ones expire in function when the objective for which they serve is fulfilled or when they are manually deleted.

Additionally, depending on its purpose, Cookies can be classified as follows:

PERFORMANCE COOKIES: This type of Cookie remembers your preferences for the tools found in the Services, so you do not have to reconfigure the service each time you visit. As an example, this typology includes: 

  • Volume settings of video or sound players.
  • Video streaming speeds that are compatible with your browser.
  • Objects stored in the "shopping cart" in E-commerce Services such as stores.

GEO-LOCALIZATION COOKIES: These Cookies are used to find out what country you are in when a Service is requested. This Cookie is completely anonymous, and is only used to help guide the content to your location.

REGISTRATION COOKIES: Registration cookies are generated once the User has registered or subsequently opened their session, and are used to identify you in the Services with the following objectives:

  • Keep the User identified so that, if a Service closes, the browser or computer and at another time or another day enters the Service again, it will continue to be identified, facilitating its navigation without having to re-identify itself. This functionality can be deleted if the User presses the "close session" functionality, so that this Cookie is deleted and the next time it enters the Service the User will have to log in to be identified.
  • Check if the User is authorized to access certain Services, for example, to participate in a contest.

Additionally, some Services may use connectors with social networks such as Facebook or Twitter. When the User registers in a Service with credentials of a social network, it authorizes the social network to keep a persistent Cookie that remembers its identity and guarantees access to the Services until it expires. The User can delete this Cookie and revoke access to the Services through social networks by updating their preferences in the social network that they specify.

ANALYTICAL COOKIES: Each time a User visits a Service, a tool from an external provider (Google Analytics) generates an analytic Cookie on the User's computer. This Cookie that is only generated during the visit, will serve in future visits to the Services of this website to identify the visitor anonymously. The main objectives that are pursued are:

  • Allow the anonymous identification of navigating Users through the "Cookie" (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate count of the number of visitors and their trend over time.
  • Identify anonymously the most visited contents and therefore more attractive for Users
  • Know if the User that is accessing is a new one or repeating a visit.

c) How to disable Cookies and Web Bugs in the main browsers:

It is usually possible to stop accepting browser cookies, or stop accepting cookies from a particular service.

All modern browsers allow you to change the Cookies settings. These settings are usually found in the 'options' or 'Preferences' menu of your browser. Also, you can configure your browser or your email manager, as well as install free add-ons to avoid downloading the Web Bugs when opening an email.
