Also, the Web will be able to know all the services requested by users, so that they can provide or offer information appropriate to the tastes and preferences of each user.
Typology, purpose and operation of Cookies
Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into “session cookies” or “persistent”. The first ones expire when the user closes the browser. The second ones expire depending on when the objective for which they serve is fulfilled (for example, so that the user remains identified in the Services) or when they are manually deleted.
Additionally, depending on their objective, Cookies can be classified as follows:
- 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 every time you visit. As an example, this typology includes:
- Video or sound player volume settings.
- The video transmission speeds that are compatible with your browser.
- Geo-location cookies: These Cookies are used to find out what country you are in when a service is requested. This Cookie is completely anonymous, and is only used to help target content to your location.
- Registration cookies: Registration cookies are generated once the user has registered or subsequently opened his session, and are used to identify him in the services with the following objectives:
- Keep the user identified so that, if he closes a service, the browser or the computer and at another time or another day re-enters said service, he will continue to be identified, thus facilitating his navigation without having to identify himself again. This functionality can be suppressed if the user clicks on the “close session” functionality, so this Cookie is deleted and the next time the user enters the service, they 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: Every time a User visits a service, a tool from an external provider (Google Analytics, Comscore and the like that may be added to this list in case they vary in relation to the current ones) generates an analytical Cookie on the computer of the user. This Cookie, which is only generated during the visit, will serve in future visits to the Web Services to identify the visitor anonymously. The main objectives pursued are:
- Allow the anonymous identification of browsing users through the “Cookie” (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate accounting of the number of visitors and their trend over time.
- Anonymously identify the most visited content and therefore more attractive to users.
- Know if the user you are accessing is new or repeat visit.
Important: Unless the user decides to register for 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 to optimize the User experience on the site.

Google Analytics: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=es
- Advertising cookies: This type of “Cookies” allows you to expand the information of the ads displayed to each anonymous user in the Web Services. Among others, the duration or frequency of display of advertising positions, the interaction with them, or the user’s browsing patterns and / or compartments are stored since they help to form a profile of advertising interest. In this way, they allow advertising related to the user’s interests.
- Third-party advertising cookies: In addition to the advertising managed by the Web in its Services, the Web offers its advertisers the option of serving ads through third parties (“AdServers”). In this way, these third parties can store Cookies sent from the Web Services from Users’ browsers, as well as access the data stored in them.
The companies that generate these Cookies have their own privacy policies. Currently, the Web uses the Real Media and Weborama platform to manage these services:
