1)More information on cookies
What is a cookie?
cookieA cookie is a harmless text file that is stored in your browser when you visit almost any web page. The usefulness of the cookie is that the website is able to remember your visit when you return to browse that page. Although many people are not aware of it, cookies have been used for 20 years, when the first browsers for the World Wide Web appeared.
What a cookie IS NOT:
It is not a virus, or a Trojan, or a worm, or spam, or spyware, nor does it open pop-up windows.
What information does a cookie store?
Cookies do not usually store sensitive information about you, such as credit cards or bank details, photographs, your ID or personal information, etc. The data they keep is of a technical nature, personal preferences, personalisation of contents, etc.
The web server associates your web browser not you as a person. In fact, if you regularly browse with Internet Explorer and then browse the same website with Firefox or Chrome you will see that the web does not realise that you are the same person because it is really associating the browser, not the person.
What type of cookies are there?
- Technical cookies: These are the most basic and allow us to know, among other things, when a human or an automated application is browsing, and when an anonymous or registered user is browsing, basic tasks for the operation of any dynamic web.
- Analysis cookies: They collect information on the type of browsing, the most used sections, products consulted, time zone of use, language, etc.
- Advertising cookies: They show advertising based your browsing, country of origin, language, etc.
What are own and third-party cookies?
Own cookies are those generated by the 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 the cookies?
To understand the impact of disabling cookies, here are a few examples:
- You won’t be able to share content from that website on Facebook, Twitter or any other social networking site.
- The website will not be able to adapt the content to your personal preferences, as usually happens on online stores.
- You won’t be able to access the personal area of the website, such as My account, My profileor My orders.
- Online stores: It will be impossible to make online purchases; they will have to be by telephone or visiting the physical store if there is one.
- It will not be possible to customise your geographical preferences such as time zone, currency or language.
- The website will not be able to perform web analytics on visitors and traffic on the web, which will make it difficult for the website to be competitive.
- You won’t be able to write in the blog, upload photos, post comments or rate content. The website won’t be able to know either whether you are a human or an automated application that publishes spam.
- It will not be possible to show sectorised advertising, which will reduce the advertising revenue of the website.
