1. What is a cookie?

Cookies or data storage and retrieval devices are files sent by a website to users' browsers that are automatically stored on their devices so that the website can check users' previous browsing habits and “recognize" them.

Cookies are able to remember other personal information, such as the user's password, so that it doesn’t have to be entered each time a website is visited, or the user's preferences regarding the configuration of a website (language, screen resolution, among others).

Cookies are essential for the smooth operation of the Internet, providing countless benefits for the provision of interactive services by facilitating website browsing and usability. Cookies do not harm your devices; on the contrary, while they are active they can help to identify and resolve errors.

In short, a cookie is simply a text file with pieces of data about a user's browsing habits that is stored on the user's device and that is detected and recognized by a website in order to "remember" that user's browsing habits.

Please note that not all cookies involve the processing of personal data. If such data is processed, it will be done in keeping with our General Privacy Policy.
