1. What are Cookies?
Cookies are files that websites or applications place on your browser or device (e.g.: Smartphone, tablet or smart television) as you visit pages on the site or use the application and they serve to store information on your visit.
- Ensure that the pages on the site can operate correctly.
- Store preferences such as the language or text size you choose.

- Gather anonymous statistical information, like how many pages you visit and how long you stay on the site.
2. Type, purpose and operation

Persistent cookies expire when their objective is fulfilled (for example, for the user to remain identified on the website) or when they are erased manually.
In relation to their objectives, Cookies can also be classified as follows:
- Strictly necessary (technical): These cookies are essential for the site to operate correctly. Normally they are generated when the user accesses or logs into the website and they are used to identify the user on the website for the following purposes:
- Remember user identification, so that when the user leaves the website, browser or device and returns later, the user will be recognised, making browsing easier by avoiding the need to log in again.
- Verify whether the user is authorised to access certain services or areas of the website.
- Performance cookies: used to improve browsing experience and optimise website functionality, like for example, storing service configurations or items in a shopping basket.
- Advertising cookies: they collect information on the advertisements displayed to website users. There are two types:
- Anonymous: they only gather information on the advertising spaces displayed on the website, regardless of user, that is, they do not expressly identify the user.
- Personalised: used by third parties to gather personal information on users in order to customise advertising spaces.
- Geo-location cookies: used to find out what country or region the user is in when they access a website service in order to offer content or services appropriate to their location.
- Analytics cookies: they gather information on the user's website browsing experience, normally anonymously, although sometimes they also uniquely and unambiguously identify the user to obtain reports on the user’s interest in the services the website offers.
