1 ¿What are cookies?

A cookie is a text file that a web server can save on your computer's hard drive to store some type of information about you as a user. Cookies are used for different purposes such as storing data for future visits, to recognise the user and avoiding asking for authentication again, knowing which pages you visit, and/or saving your preferences in customisable areas, etc. Normally websites use cookies to obtain statistical information about their web pages, as well as to analyse the behaviour of their clients/users.

Cookies used for any of the following purposes are exempt from compliance with the obligations established in Article 22.2 of the Law on Information Society Services and Electronic Commerce:

  • Those that only allow communication between the user's computer and the network.
  • Those that strictly provide a service expressly requested by the user.

Thus, cookies that are exempt are those whose purpose is as follows:

  • “User input” cookies. These are cookies that are stored on the computer when the user enters information on a website. For example, when filling in a form on a site.
  • User authentication/identification cookies (session only). These cookies' function is to identify a user when they enter their credentials while logging in.
  • User security cookies. These are cookies that detect security problems or risks. For example, those that detect erroneous and repeated connection attempts.
  • Media player session cookies. These cookies allow multimedia content to be played on the websites that the user visits. For example, videos that play automatically upon entering a website are authorised by this type of cookie.
  • Session cookies for load balancing. These cookies connect the website's server and the user's server so that information can be transmitted between them.
  • User interface customisation cookies. These are cookies that remember the users' preferences while browsing the site. For example, language, preferred browser, etc.
  • Certain plug-in cookies to exchange social media content. These are used when the user visits social networks via a website. For example, when sharing a website's article on social media.

The specific uses we make of these technologies are described below.


2. Types of cookies

Cookies can be classified according to the following criteria:

Cookies can be classified by who installs them, for example:

Own cookies: These are cookies that are sent to the user's machine from a machine or domain managed by the editor of the content – the individual or entity from which the service requested by the user is provided.

Third-party cookies: These are cookies that are sent to the user's machine either from a machine or a domain managed by the editor of the content or by a third party, but the information collected in these cookies is managed by a third party other than the owner of the website.

Cookies can be classified by how long they are kept, for example:

Session cookies: These are cookies that last only while the user is browsing the site, and they are deleted when the browsing ends.

Persistent cookies: These are stored on the user's machine for a longer time, thus facilitating control of the preferences that have been chosen without having to repeatedly set certain parameters each time the website is visited.

Cookies can be classified by their purpose, for example:

Technical cookies: These are cookies that are essential and strictly necessary for the proper functioning of a website and to be able to use the various options and services the site offers. For example, cookies for session management, those that allow you to use security elements, share content with social networks, etc.

Personalisation cookies: These cookies allow the user to choose or personalise features of the site such as the language, regional configuration, and/or browser type.

Analytics cookies: These are cookies used by sites to create browsing profiles and discover user preferences in order to improve the products and services offered. They tell us about the geographical areas that are of greatest interest to a user, what the most popular website information is, etc.

Advertising/ad cookies: These are cookies that store information on user behaviour obtained through continuous observation of the user's browsing habits. This allows for the development of a specific profile based upon which ads are displayed.
