I – What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer or smartphone when you use certain websites, computer programs or mobile applications (“Sites” in general). They carry information that these sites need to offer you their services, facilitate navigation, preferences, manage advertising, etc. Learn more about cookies on Wikipedia.
II – Types of cookies
There are different ways to classify cookies, and the same cookie may receive different classifications, depending on how they are created and used. Please note that these categories are not always standard, and other sites may use different classifications.
1 – Depending on the duration of the cookie.
a) Session Cookies – Last only during a browsing session, and expire when the user closes the browser window. They are used, for example, to remember what a user has placed in their shopping cart. These are considered less intrusive than other types of cookies.
b) Persistent Cookies – These are stored on the user’s device between browser sessions, and may last for an indefinite number of days, set by the Web site that creates the cookie. It can be used to remember user preferences for future visits or for contextual advertising, for example. The intrusion of such cookies depends on whether it is created by the site itself or by third parties, and what they are used for.
2 – Depending on the origin of the cookie
a) Own Cookies – When the website that creates the cookie is the same as the user is visiting.
b) Third-party Cookies – When the cookie is placed from another Web site, it collects information to provide visitors with their own services or track users by the sites they visit.
3 – Depending on the use of the cookie
a) Technical Cookies – Allow the user to browse through a site and use any of the existing options or services, for example, traffic control and data communication, identify the session, restrict access to some pages, remember elements of an order, process to purchase an order, use a personal member area, use the security features of storage, video content or electronic sound or share content through social networks. Some of these cookies are considered “strictly necessary cookies” because it would be impossible to use the site without them.
b) Personalization Cookies – allow users to change the operation of a website according to their preferences (eg languages, styles, browser, etc.).
c)Analytic Cookies – Record user behavior on a website, and create statistics that can be used to tailor information to them, in order to improve services and content.
d) Advertising Cookies – Allow the effective management of advertising spaces offered by the site
e) Behavioral Advertising Cookies – Store information about users’ behavior through continuous observation of their browsing habits, sometimes between multiple sites. These include so-called “super cookies” that can control the online behavior of users within various sites and from different devices. They are usually placed on third party sites that offer some kind of service in return. A classic example is the “social buttons” that allow a site to interact with social networks such as Facebook, Google Plus or twitter. But you should be aware of cookies of this type that may invade your privacy.
