2. What kind of cookies does this website use?
Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into session or permanent cookies. The first ones expire when the user closes the browser. The second expire in function when the objective for which they serve is fulfilled (for example, so that the user remains identified in the webs and services of the web) or when they are manually deleted.
Additionally, depending on its purpose, Cookies can be classified as follows:
Performance Cookies: This type of Cookie remembers your preferences for the tools found in the services, so you do not have to reconfigure the service each time you visit. As an example, this typology includes:
• Volume settings of video or sound players.
• The video transmission speeds that are compatible with your browser.
Geolocation cookies: these Cookies are used to find out what country you are in when a web or service is requested. This Cookie is completely anonymous, and is only used to help guide the content to your location.
Registration cookies: Registration cookies are generated once the User has registered or subsequently opened their session, and are used to identify you on the web and services with the following objectives:
• Keep the user identified so that, if a service or web closes, the browser or computer and at another time or another day enters the service or website again, it will remain identified, facilitating its navigation without having to re-identify itself . This functionality can be deleted if the user presses the “Exit” functionality, so that this Cookie is deleted and the next time it enters the web the user will have to log in to be identified.
• Check if the user is authorized to access certain services, for example, to participate in a contest.
• Additionally, some services may use third-party connectors such as Facebook, Twitter or Google. When the user registers in a service with credentials of a social network or identification system of third parties, authorizes the same to keep a persistent cookie that remembers his identity and guarantees access to the web until it expires. The user can delete this cookie and revoke access to the website through social networks or third party identification system updating their preferences in the social network that specific.
Analytics Cookies: Each time a User visits a Web or Service, a tool from an external provider (Google Analytics, comScore and similar) generates an analytical cookie on the user’s device. This cookie that is only generated during the visit, will serve in future visits to the services of the web to identify the visitor anonymously. The main objectives that are pursued are:
• Allow the anonymous identification of navigating users through the “Cookie” (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate count of the number of visitors and their trend over time.
• Identify anonymously the most visited contents and therefore more attractive for users
• Know if the user who is accessing is new or repeat visit.
