Thanks to a cookie this website is able to remember your last visit when you access that site again. Even if it is no common knowledge among the internet users, cookies have been in use for over twenty years since the first web browsers appeared in the World Wide Web.

But a cookie is not…

…a virus, nor a backdoor Trojan horse, nor a computer worm, nor spam, nor spyware and it does not allow pop-ups.

What information does a cookie store?

Cookies do not store sensitive information such as credit card numbers, account information, personal pictures, your I.D or any other kind of personal information. The data stored in a cookie is technical information regarding personal preferences, content personalization, etc.

A web server treats your web browser as if it were an individual. For example, if you usually browse the web with Internet Explorer and then you navigate the internet with Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome, the web server does not recognize you as the same person because it recognizes the browser, not the human being.

What kind of cookies are there?

  • Technical cookies: are the most basic of all and they are able to discern when it is a human being the one who is browsing the web or an automatic application, and also when the searcher is an anonymous user or a registered user. All this information is essential for the proper functioning of a dynamic website.
  • Analytic cookies: they gather information about your habits when browsing the web; time of the day in which you usually make use of the internet, the items you search for, the most visited websites, your language, etc.
  • Advertising cookies: they show advertisements according to your browsing habits, the country in which you are located, your language, etc.

What are First-Party and Third-Party cookies?
