Cookies can be classified according to different criteria. If we take into account their origin, we can classify them as follows:

Third-party cookies:

These are installed on your computer by a third party company and their purpose, among others, is to obtain useful data to improve our Website. Some of the data collected are, for example: the number of visits received, the origin of the visits, the keywords used to find us, or the peak times of visitors. You can configure your browser not to receive these cookies and they will not be installed.

Own cookies:

Those that are sent to the User’s computer from a computer or domain managed by the Controller and from which the service requested by the User is provided.

As indicated by the Spanish Data Protection Agency in its guide on cookies, these can be classified according to their purpose. The Spanish Data Protection Agency itself proposes the following classification, which should not be understood as a closed list:

Technical cookies:

Are those that allow the user to navigate through a website, platform or application and the use of the different options or services that exist in it, including those that the editor uses to enable the management and operation of the website and enable its functions and services, such as, for example, control traffic and data communication, identify the session, access parts of restricted access, remember the elements that make up an order, make the buying process of an order, manage payment, control fraud linked to the security of the service, make the application for registration or participation in an event, count visits for the purposes of billing licenses for the software with which the service (website, platform or application) operates, use security elements during browsing, store content for the broadcasting of videos or sound, enable dynamic content (for example, animation of loading text or images) or share content through social networks.

Also belonging to this category, due to their technical nature, are those cookies that allow the management, in the most efficient way possible, of the advertising spaces that, as another element of the design or “layout” of the service offered to the user, the editor has included on a website, application or platform based on criteria such as the edited content, without collecting information from users for other purposes, such as personalising this advertising content or other content.

Technical cookies shall be exempt from compliance with the obligations established in article 22.2 of the LSSI when they enable the service requested by the user to be provided, as in the case of the cookies listed in the previous paragraphs. However, if these cookies are also used for non-exempt purposes (for example, for behavioural advertising purposes), they will be subject to these obligations.

Interface personalisation cookies:

These are those that allow information to be remembered so that the user accesses the service with certain characteristics that may differentiate their experience from that of other users, such as, for example, the language, the number of results to be displayed when the user performs a search, the appearance or content of the service depending on the type of browser through which the user accesses the service or the region from which they access the service, etc.

If it is the user himself who chooses these characteristics (for example, if he selects the language of a website by clicking on the icon of the flag of the corresponding country), the cookies will be exempt from the obligations of article 22.2 of the LSSI as they are considered a service expressly requested by the user, provided that the cookies are exclusively for the purpose selected.

Analysis or measurement cookies:

These are those that allow the party responsible for them to monitor and analyse the behaviour of users of the websites to which they are linked, including the quantification of the impacts of advertisements. The information collected through this type of cookies is used to measure the activity of the websites, application or platform, in order to introduce improvements based on the analysis of the data on the use made by users of the service.

Regarding the processing of data collected through analytics cookies, the WG29 stated that, although they are not exempt from the duty to obtain informed consent for their use, they are unlikely to pose a risk to users’ privacy provided that they are first-party cookies, that they process aggregated data for strictly statistical purposes, that information is provided on their uses and that the possibility for users to express their refusal on their use is included.

Behavioural advertising cookies:

These are those that store information on user behaviour obtained through the continuous observation of their browsing habits, which allows a specific profile to be developed in order to display advertising based on the same. Finally, depending on their persistence in the system, we can present the following classification:

Persistent cookies:

These are cookies in which the data remain stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the party responsible for the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years.

Session cookies:

These are those designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a website. They are usually used to store information that only needs to be kept for the provision of the service requested by the user on a single occasion (for example, a list of products purchased) and disappear at the end of the session.
