A cookie is a harmless text file that is stored on your browser when you visit almost any website.

Although many people are not aware of it, cookies have been in use for 20 years, when the first browsers for the World Wide Web were introduced.

What information does a cookie store?

Cookies do not often store sensitive information about you, such as credit card or bank account information, photographs, your identity card or personal information, etc. The data stored is of a technical nature, such as personal preferences, personalization of content, etc.

The web server does not profile you as a person, but your web browser. In fact, if you usually browse with Internet Explorer and try to browse the same web with Firefox or Chrome, you will see that the web does not realize that you are the same person it is actually the browser which has been profiles, not the person.

What type of cookies exist?

  • Technical cookies: These are the most basic and, among other things, allow it to be known whether a human or an automated application is browsing, when an anonymous user is navigating, rather than a registered one and basic tasks for the operation of any dynamic web.
  • Analysis cookies: These collect information on the type of navigation that is being carried out, the most used sections, reference numbers, time period of use, language, etc.
  • Advertising cookies: These display advertising based on navigation, country of origin, language, etc.

What are own cookies and third-party cookies?

Own cookies are those generated by the page that you are visiting and third-party cookies are generated by internal or external providers, such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, etc.

What happens if I turn cookies off?

In order to understand the reach that disabling cookies may have, we provide the following examples:

  • You cannot share content from that page with Facebook, Twitter or any other social network.
  • The website will not adapt content to your personal preferences, as often happens in online stores.
  • You cannot access the personal area of the web, such as My Account, My Profile or My Orders.

  • It is not possible to customize your geographic preferences, such as time zone, currency or language.
  • The website will not be able to carry out web analytics on visitors and traffic to the website, making it difficult for the website to be competitive.
  • You cannot write on the blog, you cannot upload photos, post comments, evaluate or rate content. The website may not know whether you are a human or an automated application that publishes spam.
  • Sectored advertising cannot be used, which will reduce income from the website.
  • All social networks use cookies. If these are disabled, no social network may be used./li>
