a) Typology, purpose and operation of Cookies
Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into "Session Cookies" or "Permanent Cookies". The first ones expire when the user closes the browser. The second ones expire depending on when the objective for which they serve is met (for example, for the user to remain identified in the Services) or when they are deleted manually.
Additionally, depending on your objective , Cookies can be categorized 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. By way of example, this typology includes:
-Volume settings for video or sound players.
- The video transmission speeds that are compatible with your browser.
Registration Cookies: Registration Cookies are generated once the user has registered or subsequently opened his session, and are used to identify him in the services with the following objectives:
- Keep the user identified so that, if he closes a service, the browser or the computer and at another time or another day re-enter said service, will continue to be identified, thus facilitating its navigation without having to re-identify. This functionality can be suppressed if the user clicks the "close session" functionality, so this cookie is deleted and the next time the user 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.
Analytic Cookies: Each time a user visits a service, a tool from an external provider (Google Analytics, Comscore and similar that can be added to this list in case they vary from the current ones) generates an analytic Cookie on the computer of the user. This Cookie that is generated only in the visit, will serve in next visits to the Services of the Web to anonymously identify the visitor. The main objectives are:
- Allow anonymous identification of browsing users through the "Cookie" (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate accounting of the number of visitors and their trend over time.
- Identify anonymously the most visited content and therefore more attractive to users.
- Know if the user you are accessing is new or repeat visits.
Important: Unless the user decides to register in a Web service, the "Cookie" will never be associated with any personal data that can identify you. Such Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that help to optimize the Users' experience on the site.
