What are Cookies?

A cookie is a file or device that is downloaded to the user’s computer for the purpose of storing data that can be updated and retrieved by the company that installed the cookies. In other words, it is a file that is downloaded to your computer when you access certain websites. Cookies enable a website to, among other things, store and retrieve information about the browsing habits of a user or his or her computer and, depending on the information they contain and the way in which the computer is used, they can be used to recognise the user.

Their main functions are:

  • To improve user control: when a user types their username and password, a cookie is stored so they do not have to type them every time to access every website on the server. However, a cookie does not only identify a person, but rather a combination of computer-browser-user.

  • •To gain information about the user’s browsing habits, and spyware attempts (spyware programmes), from advertising agencies and others. This can cause privacy problems and is one of the reasons why cookies have their critics.

There are different types of cookies depending, primarily, on the purpose for which they are used. These different types of cookies include the following:

Analytical cookies: these cookies are used to analyse users’ behaviour and actions on the website as well as to produce browsing profiles with the aim of implementing improvements in terms of technical functioning and service.

Advertising cookies: these cookies enable effective management of advertising space based on a range of criteria, for example, checking whether or not a user has had access to an announcement before updating it with another one.

Behavioural advertising cookies: these cookies are used to store information about users’ behaviour, focussing on their browsing habits. This enables companies to produce user profiles based on their behaviour and then use these profiles to tailor the advertising shown to the user.
