What is a “cookie”?
A cookie is a file that is downloaded onto your computer when you access certain webpages. Cookies allow a website, among other things, to store and retrieve information about the browsing habits of a user or a user’s machine and –depending on the information they contain and the way in which your computer is used– they may be used to recognise your machine.
However, these methods only obtain information related to the number of pages visited, the city to which the IP address used for access is assigned, the number of new users, the frequency, recurrence of visits, the time of each visit, the browser, operator and terminal type from which the visit was made. Data on the User’s first name, surname, mailing address, or other similar data about the User is never obtained.
