WHAT IS A COOKIE?
‘Cookies’ are small files that some platforms, such as websites, may install on your computer, smartphone, tablet, smart TV, etc. when said platforms are accessed. Their functions can be highly varied: storing your browsing preferences, gathering statistical information, enabling certain technical features, storing and recovering information about the browsing habits or preferences of a user or their devices so that, on occasion and depending on the information they contain and the way in which the device is used, said user can be recognised. Cookies are stored on a computer in order to personalise the user’s browsing and make it as easy as possible. Cookies play a very important role in improving the experience of using a website.
In other words, a cookie is a fragment of information sent by a website and stored in the user’s browser, so that the website can consult that user’s prior activity. A cookie does not just identify a person; it can incorporate a combination of computer-browser-user.
Why are they important?
- From a technical point of view, they enable websites to function more quickly and to adapt to the users’ preferences: for example, they can store the language and the currency of the country or detect the type of device used for access.
- They establish protection and security levels which stop or obstruct cyberattacks on the website or its users.
- They enable media managers to see the statistical data compiled by the cookies and therefore improve the quality and experience of their services.
- They are used to optimise the advertising shown to the users, offering adverts which are more suited to their interests.
