- Third cookies: These are those that are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the publisher, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through cookies.
In the event that cookies are installed from a computer or domain managed by the editor himself but the information collected through them is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered as own cookies.

- Strictly necessary (technical): These are essential for the proper functioning of the page. They are normally generated when the user accesses the website or logs in to it and they are used to identify them on the website with the following objectives:
- Keep the user identified so that, if they leave the website, browser or device and at another time access said website again, they will continue to be identified, thus facilitating their browsing without having to identify themselves again.
- Check if the user is authorized to access certain services or areas of the website.
- Performance: They are used to improve the browsing experience and optimize the operation of the website, such as, for example, storing service settings, or storing the purchase made in a shopping cart.

- Personalized: They collect personal information from the website user by a third party, for the personalization of said advertising spaces.
- Geo-location: These Cookies are used to find out in which country or region the user is when accessing a website service in order to offer content or services appropriate to their location.
- Analytics: They collect information about the user’s browsing experience on the website, usually anonymously, although sometimes they also allow the user to be uniquely and unequivocally identified in order to obtain reports on the interests of users in the services offered by the website.
Depending on their permanence, they can be divided into:
