Cookies are files that can be downloaded to your computer through web pages. They are fundamental tools which allow certain services of the information society to be provided. Among other functions, they allow a web page to save and retrieve information about the browsing habits of a user or the actions carried out on a particular computer. From that data stored, the user can be recognised and the service can be improved accordingly.
Types of cookies
According to the entity that manages them and processes the data obtained, there are two types of cookies: those called first party cookies and those called third party cookies.
Depending on the time they remain active in the user's browser, they can also be classified as session cookies or persistent cookies.
Finally, cookies can be classified into five groups, depending on the purposes for which the information is obtained: technical, personalisation, analytical, publicity and behavioural advertising.

The web analytics allows you to know the number of users who access the web, the number of pages visited, the frequency and repetition of the visits, the duration, the browser used, the operator that provides the service, the language, the terminal used or the city where the IP of the interactor is assigned.
