One of the ways in which I collect information is through the use of technology called “cookies”. At Luis Torres Rubio , cookies are used for several things.
What is a cookie?
A “cookie” is a small amount of text that is stored in your browser (such as Google’s Chrome or Apple’s Safari) when you browse most websites.
What is NOT a cookie?
It is not a virus, a Trojan, a worm, a spam, a spyware, or a pop-up window.
What information does a cookie store?
Cookies do not usually store sensitive information about you, such as credit card or bank details, photographs or personal information, etc. The data they do store is of a technical nature, statistics, personal preferences, personalisation of content, etc.
The web server does not associate you as a person but your web browser. In fact, if you usually browse with the Chrome browser and try to browse the same website with the Firefox browser, you will see that the website does not realise that you are the same person because it is actually associating the information to the browser, not to the person.
What kind of cookies are there?
Technical cookies: These are the most basic and allow, among other things, to know when a human or an automated application is browsing, when an anonymous user and a registered user are browsing, basic tasks for the operation of any dynamic website.
Analysis cookies: They collect information about the type of browsing you are doing, the sections you use most, products consulted, time of use, language, etc.
Advertising cookies: They show advertising according to your navigation, your country of origin, language, etc.
What are your own cookies and those of third parties?
Own cookies are those generated by the page you are visiting and those of third parties are those generated by external services or suppliers such as Mailchimp, Mailrelay, Facebook, Twitter, Google adsense, etc.
