What kind of cookies exist
Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into:

- Registration cookies: Registration cookies are generated once the user has registered or subsequently opened their session, and they are used to identify you in the services with the following objectives:
- Keep the user identified so that, if a service closes, the browser or computer and another time or another day comes back into that service, it will remain identified, thus facilitating navigation without having to re-identify. This functionality can be suppressed if the user presses the “close session” functionality, so that this Cookie is deleted and the next time it enters the service the user will have to log in to be identified.
- Check if the user is authorized to access certain services, for example, to participate in a contest.
- Analytical cookies: Each time a user visits a service, a tool from an external provider generates an analytic cookie on the user’s computer. This Cookie that is only generated during the visit, will serve in future visits to the Web Services to identify the visitor anonymously. The main objectives that are pursued are:
- Allow the anonymous identification of the navigating users through the “Cookie” (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate count of the number of visitors and their tendency in time.
- Identify anonymously the most visited contents and therefore more attractive to users.
- Know if the user who is accessing is new or repeat visit.
- Important: Unless the user decides to register in a Web service, the “Cookie” will never be associated with any personal data that can identify him. These Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that help optimize the experience of users on the site.
