What is a “cookie?”
A cookie is a file that is downloaded onto your computer when you access certain webpages. Cookies allow a website, among other things, to store and retrieve information about the browsing habits of a user or a user’s machine and –depending on the information they contain and the way in which your computer is used– they may be used to recognise your machine.
However, these methods only obtain information related to the number of pages visited, the city to which the IP address used for access is assigned, the number of new users, the frequency and recurrence of visits, the time of each visit, and/or the browser or operator or terminal type from which the visit was made. Data on the User’s first name, surname, mailing address, or other similar data about the User is never obtained.
What types of cookies exist?
Cookies can be first-party or third-party cookies. First-party cookies are those that are sent to the User’s machine from a computer or domain managed by the Website’s editor to provide the service requested by the User.

Persistent cookies are a type of cookie that keeps data stored on the terminal and can be accessed and processed for an amount of time defined by the person in charge of said cookie – said amount of time may vary between a few minutes and several years.
