What types of cookies exist?
Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into:
They expire when the user closes the browser.
They expire when the purpose for which they serve is fulfilled (for example, so that the user remains identified in the Services) or when they are manually deleted.

They are those that are sent to the user’s device from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
Third party cookies
They are those that are sent to the user’s device from a computer or domain that is not managed by the editor, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through cookies.
Additionally, depending on their Objective, Cookies can be classified as follows:
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 for video or sound players.
· The video transmission speeds that are compatible with your browser.
These Cookies are used to find out in which country you are when a service is requested. This Cookie is completely anonymous, and is only used to help guide the content to your location.
Registration Cookies are generated once the user has registered or subsequently opened his session, and are used to identify him in the services with the following objectives:
· Keep the user identified so that, if he closes a service, the browser or the computer and at another time or another day he re-enters said service, he will continue to be identified, thus facilitating his navigation without having to re-identify himself. This functionality can be suppressed if the user presses the “close session” functionality, so that this Cookie is deleted and the next time the user enters the service will have to log in to be identified.
· Check if the user is authorised to access certain services, for example, to participate in a contest.
Behavioural advertising cookies
This type of “Cookies” allows you to expand the information of the advertisements shown to each anonymous user in the Web Services. Among others, the duration or frequency of viewing advertising positions, the interaction with them, or the user’s browsing patterns and / or shares are stored as they help to form a profile of advertising interest. In this way, they allow to offer advertising related to the interests of the user.
Third-party advertising cookies
In addition to the advertising managed by the Web on its Services, the Web offers its advertisers the option of serving advertisements through third parties (“AdServers”). In this way, these third parties can store Cookies sent from the Web Services from the Users’ browsers, as well as access the data stored in them.
