Cookies allow a website, among other things, to store and retrieve information about the browsing habits of a user or their computer and, depending on the information they contain and the way you use your computer, they can be used to recognise the user. Cookies play a very important role, as without them using the Web would be a much more frustrating experience.
If you do not wish to store cookies, please configure your Internet browser to erase them from your computer's hard drive, block them or warn you if they are installed.
2. Types of cookies
There are several types of cookies. Depending on the entity that manages the domain from which the cookies are sent and processes the obtained data, two types can be distinguished: first-party cookies and third-party cookies. There is also a second classification dependent on the length of time they remain stored in the client's browser, being either session cookies or persistent cookies. Finally, there is another classification of five types of cookies according to the purpose for which the obtained data is processed: technical cookies, personalisation cookies, analysis cookies, advertising cookies and behavioural advertising cookies.
