Cookies are small text files containing a certain amount of information exchanged between a website and the user’s terminal (usually the browser programme on the user’s device). They are mainly used for the purpose of operating websites and rendering said operations more efficient, as well as providing information to the owners of the site. Cookies are of two types: session and persistent. Session cookies are stored in the terminal for a short period of time, and are deleted as soon as the user closes the browser. Their use is limited purely to the transmission of session identifiers, which consist of random numbers generated by the server, allowing secure and efficient browsing. Persistent cookies, on the other hand, are stored in the user’s terminal up to a pre-established expiry date. As these cookies are not deleted directly when the browser is closed, they remember the choices made by the user on the website and provide information about the pages of the site visited by the user, the frequency with which the site is visited, and user browsing habits, in order to improve the site experience.
Session or persistent cookies may be First Party or Third Party, depending on whether the subject that installs cookies on the user’s terminal is the manager of the website being visited (First party cookies) or another subject (third party cookies).
