1. What are cookies?
The Web therefore is able to know all of the services requested by the user, so that the company behind the Web will be able to optimize or offer appropriate information that matches the tastes and preferences of each user.
2. What type of cookies does this Web use?
Cookies are differentiated based on how long they remain, and can be divided into the following types:
Session cookies expire when the user closes the browser.
Persistent cookies expire when the purpose for which they are used is fulfilled (for example, they remain as long as a user needs to be identified in a service), or when they are deleted manually.
Additionally, depending upon their purpose, cookies can be classified as follows:
Performance cookies remember user preferences for the tools contained within the services, so the user does not need to reconfigure the service each time he or she visits the Web. Video and audio volume settings are an example.
These cookies are used to find out what country a user is in when requesting a service. This cookie is completely anonymous and is only used to help direct content relevant to the user’s location.
Log cookies are generated once the user has registered or has opened a session, and are used to identify the user in the services for the following purposes:
– To keep the user identified so that, even if the service is closed, the browser or computer may re-enter the service later, without having to re-identify him-or herself. This functionality can be deleted if the user clicks "log out," which deletes the cookie and requires a new log in the next time the service is requested by the same user.
– To check if the user is authorized to access certain services, for example, to participate in a contest.
Each time a user visits a service, a tool from an external provider generates an analytical cookie on the user's computer. The cookie that is generated will be used in subsequent visits to utilize the Web’s services in order to anonymously identify the visitor.
The main objectives that are pursued are:
– To allow anonymous identification of users through the cookie (which identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore to provide an approximate count of the number of visitors and the time they tend to visit.
– To anonymously identify the most visited content and be able to make it more attractive to users.
– To know if the user that is accessing the Web is a new or returning visitor to the Web.
Important: Unless the user decides to register for a Web service, the cookie will never be associated with any identifiable personal data. The cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that help to optimize the experience of users on the site.
Behavioral Advertising Cookies
Behavioral advertising cookies allow the company behind the Web to extend the advertisements shown to each anonymous user of the Web services. This cookie stores the duration or frequency of the display of advertising positions, the user’s interaction with them, browsing patterns and/or behavior of the user in order to help form a profile of their advertising interests. In this way, the cookies allow advertising that is related to the interests of the user to be displayed.
Third-Party Advertising Cookies
In addition to the advertising managed by the Web in its services, the Web offers its advertisers the option of serving ads through third parties ("AdServers"). In this way, the third parties can store cookies sent from the Web services from the users' browsers, as well as access the data stored in them.
