2 – Which are the existing cookie types?

Depending on their expiration time, they may be categorized into the following types:

TYPES OF COOKIES 
Session CookiesThey expire when the user closes the browser.

In addition, depending on their Objective, Cookies can be classified as follows:
COOKIES ACCORDING TO OBJECTIVE 
Performance Cookies

This type of Cookie remembers your preferences for the tools found in the services, so you do not have to reconfigure the service upon each visit. As an example, this typology includes:

  1. Volume settings of video or sound players.

 2. Video streaming speeds compatible with your web browser.

Geolocation cookiesThese Cookies are used to define the country you are in when requesting a service. This Cookie is completely anonymous and solely used to help target content to your location.
Registration cookies

Registration Cookies are generated upon user registration or subsequent log-in. They are used to identify you in the services for the following purposes: 

Keep the user identified so that, if they close a service, the browser or the device and re-enter it at another time or on another day, they will continue to be identified, thus facilitating their browsing without having to re-identify themselves. This functionality can be turned off by the user clicking on the „log out“ option. This Cookie is then deleted and, the next time the user connects to the service, they must log in again to be identified. 

Check if the user is authorized to access certain services, for example, to participate in a competition.

Analytical cookies

Each time a user connects to a service, an external provider’s tool generates an analytical cookie on the user’s device. This Cookie, which is only generated upon visiting, will serve for future visits to the Web Services to anonymously identify the visitor. These are the pursued main objectives: 

Allow anonymous identification of browsing users through the „Cookie“ (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and thereby the approximate count of visitor numbers and the trend over time. 

Anonymously identify the most visited and therefore most attractive user content. Know if the accessing user is new or repeating a visit. 

Important: Unless the user decides to register for a service on the Website, the “Cookie” will never be associated with any personal data that can identify them.  Such Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that help to optimise the experience of users on the website.
