Thus, the new community and national regulation deems necessary the obtainment of an informed consent from users, thereby ensuring that the latter are aware of both the use made of their personal data and its purpose.
Consequently, the guidelines that follow will be of use to those cases to which Article 22, Section 2 of the LSSI may be applicable and which refers to the placement of cookies and similar technologies used in the storage and recovery of data, with the exception of those that allow for connectivity between the user´s computer system and the web, and also those that render services specifically requested by the user. In any case, it must be taken into account that any one cookie may have more than one purpose, and that whilst it may be legally exempt from one given purpose, it may, nevertheless, be legally entitled to another.
Let us now proceed with a more detailed explanation:

Cookies can be the publisher´s own cookies sent to the user´s computer terminal from the former´s own computer system or domain, and which provide a service requested by the user or from third parties and which are those cookies sent to the user´s computer terminal from a computer system or domain not managed by the said publisher and which come from data obtained via cookies.
Moreover, we can make use of web beacons, which are visible or invisible electronic images found within the source code of a website in an HTML supported application or email, and which are downloaded jointly with the latter.

There are two types of cookies, depending on how long they are kept active:

  • Persistent cookies: This is a file text sent by a web server to a web navigator and which is saved by the latter and which, unless deleted by the user, will be kept active until its due expiry date.
  • Session cookies: This type of cookie will expire when the user logs out and the navigator is shut down.



We are able to distinguish between cookies by ascertaining the end purpose of the use of the data obtained from them:

  • Technical cookies: Are those that allow us to surf the web, application, or platform and the use of options and services that may appear, such as the control of data communication and derived traffic, the identification of the online session, the access to restricted areas, the recollection of the elements that constitute a request, the carrying out of the purchase of a product, the participation in an event and the storing or sharing of contents through social networks.
  • Personalised cookies: Are those that allow the user to access services of a general nature and which are predefined in the user´s terminal in accordance to criteria, such as language, the type of navigator used to access the service, the regional configuration from where the service is accessed, etc.
  • Analytical cookies: Are cookies that allow those responsible for them to follow and analyse the behaviour of users in those websites to which these cookies are linked, (eg: Cookies from Google Analytics compiles data from the browsing of the website by the user, such as the pages most visited and their inherent errors. Its objective is the evaluation of the website and the improvement in its running.)
