A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your browser when you visit almost any website. Its function is to allow the website to remember your visit when you return to browse the page. Cookies usually store technical information, personal preferences, personalised content, usage statistics, social network links, access to user accounts, etc. The aim of cookies is to adapt website content to your profile and needs. Without cookies, the services offered by any website would be significantly diminished.


What is a cookie?

A cookie is a harmless text file that is stored on your browser when you visit almost any website. Cookies allow the website to remember your visit when you return to browse the page. Many people are unaware of the fact that cookies have been used for 20 years, when the first browsers were created for the World Wide Web.

What a cookie is not

It is not a virus, a Trojan horse, a worm, spam or spyware, and it does not open pop-ups.

What information does a cookie store?

Cookies do not usually store sensitive information about you, such as credit card numbers, bank details, photos, ID numbers and personal details. The data stored is technical in nature, personal preferences, personalised content, etc. The web server does not associate you as a person but rather links to your web browser. In fact, if you regularly browse with Internet Explorer and try to browse the same website with Firefox or Chrome, you will notice that the website does not realise that you are the same person because it is actually associating the information with the browser, not the person.

What type of cookies are there?

  • Technical cookies: This is the most basic type of cookie. These let us know, for example, when a human or an automated application is browsing and when an anonymous or registered user is browsing, which are basic tasks to ensure that any dynamic website functions correctly.
  • Analytical cookies: These collect information on your type of browsing, the sections you use most, the products you look at, the times you use it, language, etc.
  • Advertising cookies: These display ads based on your browsing, country of origin, language, etc.

What are first-party and third-party cookies?

First-party cookies are those generated by the website you are visiting, while third-party cookies are generated by external services or providers such as Facebook, Twitter and Google.

What happens if I disable cookies?

Here are some examples of what would happen if you disabled cookies:

  • You would not be able to share content from that website to Facebook, Twitter or any other social network.
  • The website would not be able to adapt content to your personal preferences, as often happens in online stores.
  • You would not be able to access the personal area of that website, such as the ‘My account’, ‘My profile’ or ‘My orders’ sections.
  • Online stores: You would not be able to make online purchases; you would have to place orders by telephone or by going to a physical store if there is one.
  • You would not be able to customise your geographical preferences such as time zone, currency and language.
  • The website would not be able to carry out web analytics concerning visitors and traffic, which would prevent the website from being more competitive.
  • You would not be able to write on blogs, upload photos, post comments or rate content. The website would not know whether you were a human or an automated application publishing spam.
  • The website would not be able to display segmented ads, which would reduce its advertising revenue.
  • All social networks use cookies, so you would not be able to use any social network if you disabled them.
