1. What are cookies and what other things are stored in the browser?
Cookies are small text files that are stored in your browser when you visit our website. These files contain information about your browsing and interaction with our website, with the purpose of making your user experience more efficient. Some cookies are essential for the proper functioning of our website, such as technical or user interface customization cookies, and others, such as analysis cookies or behavioral advertising (or marketing) cookies, require you to we inform and that you give us your consent before we can use them. LocalStorage and SessionStorage are two data storage spaces located in the browser of your device and, like cookies, they can be proprietary (when created by our own website) or third-party (when created by our service providers or partners). . The difference between the two spaces is that LocalStorage stores the information indefinitely or until you decide to clear the browser data, while SessionStorage stores information for as long as the tab where our website is being used remains open and, once closed, the information is deleted. The difference with cookies, I know that these two spaces allow us to store more information than cookies without impacting the performance of our website.
2. Are they dangerous?
In general, the level of risk of cookies depends on their type, and whether they are your own or from third parties. Most cookies are not dangerous. Specifically:
TECHNICAL AND PREFERENCE COOKIES HAVE MORE BENEFITS THAN RISKS
The working group of article 29 (former GT29 and current European Committee for Data Protection) in its Opinion 4/2012, "on the exemption of the consent requirement for cookies", considers that they do not pose a risk for you and exempts of the obligation to obtain consent prior to their use to all cookies that:
- are necessary because the communications are transmitted through a network between the user and the servers that host the web, and all those that
- are necessary to provide a specific functionality explicitly requested by the user.
PURPOSES OF COOKIES EXPLICITLY EXCLUDED FROM THE INFORMED CONSENT
Regarding its purpose, GT29 explicitly excludes the following cookies from the obligation to obtain the informed consent of the visitor:
- Cookies called "user input", which are usually used to track the user's actions when filling in online forms in an http session, or to remember the shopping cart that the user has selected in an e-commerce) ,
- Session cookies that are used for user authentication or identification, which store a kind of token (witness that the user is who they say they are and has already been authenticated) to prevent this user from having to give their username or password in each page you request and have restricted access control,
- User security cookies, specifically introduced to reinforce the security of the service explicitly requested by the user. For example, to detect erroneous and repeated attempts to connect to a website, or abuse,
- Media player session cookies,
- Session cookies to balance the load of information systems,
- User interface customization cookies, such as to remember your preferred language, and
- Certain plug-in cookies to exchange social content.
In general, in those cases in which a website offers its visitors a service, to use the cookies exclusively for the purposes for which it is not necessary to obtain consent, listed above, whether they are their own or those of third parties, It will not be necessary for the person in charge of the website, us, to inform the visitor of its use or to obtain their consent.
THE STATISTICAL COOKIES ALSO DO NOT PUT AN APPRECIABLE RISK
Regarding the processing of data collected through analysis cookies, the aforementioned opinion of the current European Committee for Data Protection stated that, despite the fact that they are not exempt from the duty to obtain consent for their use, it is unlikely that they represent a risk to the privacy of users as long as they are own cookies, that treat aggregate data for strictly statistical purposes, that information is provided on their use and the possibility for users to express their refusal regarding their use is included.
THEIR OWN BISCUITS DO NOT USUALLY CARRY AN APPRECIABLE RISK FOR YOU
