Additional information about cookies

What is a cookie?

A cookie is an inoffensive text file that is stored on your browser when you visit almost any web page. Cookies are used so that the website can remember your visit the next time that you browse that page. Although most people are not aware of it, cookies have been used for 20 years, when the first World Wide Web browsers appeared.

What IS NOT a cookie?

It is not a virus, Trojan, worm, spam, spyware or a pop-up window.

What type of information does a cookie store?

Cookies do not usually store sensitive information about you, such as credit cards or bank details, photographs, your National Identity Card number or other personal information, etc. The information stored is of a technical nature, personal preferences, content personalisation, etc.

The web server does not associate it with you as a person but with your web browser. In fact, if you usually surf the Internet with Internet Explorer and you try to surf the same website with Firefox or Chrome, you will see that the website does not realise that you are the same person because really it is associating it with the browser, not the person.

What types of cookies are there?
  • Technical cookies: They are the most basic cookies, and among other things, tell when a person or an automated application is using the site, when an anonymous user or a registered user is using it and basic tasks for the operation of any dynamic web page.
  • Analytical cookies: These collect information about the type of browsing performed, the most-used sections, products consulted, time-zone of use, language, etc.
  • Advertising cookies: These cookies show advertising based on your browsing, country of origin, language, etc.
What are first-party and third-party cookies?

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

What happens if I disable cookies?

In order for you to understand the scope of what can happen if you disable cookies, here are some examples:

  • The website would not be able to adapt its content to your personal preferences, as is usually done in online stores.
  • You would not be able to access the personal area of that website, such as My account, or My profile or My orders.
  • Online stores: It will be impossible for you to shop online; you would have to shop over the telephone or by visiting the brick-and-mortar store, if there is one.
  • It will not be possible to personalise your geographic preferences such as time-zone, currency or language.
  • The website could not carry out any analysis about visitors to its site or web traffic, which will make it harder for the web page to be competitive.
  • You won’t be able to write on a blog, upload photos, post comments, assess or evaluate content. The website will not be able to tell if you are human or automated software that posts spam.
  • It won’t be possible to show advertising by sector, which will reduce the website’s advertising income.
  • All social networks use cookies, so if you disable them you won’t be able to use any social networks.
