What are cookies?
Cookies are a set of data that a server deposits in the user’s browser to collect standard Internet registration information and information on the behavior of visitors to a website.

Its purpose is to record the user’s visit and save certain information. Its use is common and frequent on the web as it allows pages to function more efficiently and achieve greater personalization and analysis of user behavior.
Cookies are small amounts of information that are stored in the browser used by each user so that the server remembers certain information that can later be used.
What types of cookies exist?

Registration cookies are generated once the user has registered or subsequently opened his session, and are used to identify him in the services with the following objectives:
Keep the user identified in such a way that, if he closes a service, the browser or the computer and at another time or another day re-enters said service, he will continue to be identified, thus facilitating his navigation without having to identify himself again. This functionality can be suppressed if the user presses the [close session] functionality, so that this cookie is deleted and the next time the user enters the service, they will have to log in to be identified.
Check if the user is authorized to access certain services, for example, to participate in a contest.
Additionally, some services may use connectors with social networks such as Facebook or Twitter. When the user registers in a service with credentials from a social network, he authorizes the social network to store a persistent Cookie that remembers his identity and grants him access to the services until it expires. The user can delete this Cookie and revoke access to services through social networks by updating their preferences in the specific social network.
Every time a user visits a service, a tool from an external provider generates an analytical cookie on the user’s computer. This cookie, which is only generated during the visit, will serve on future visits to the services to anonymously identify the visitor. The main objectives pursued are:
Allow the anonymous identification of browsing users through the cookie (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate accounting of the number of visitors and their trend over time.
Anonymously identify the most visited content and therefore more attractive to users Know if the user who is accessing is new or repeat visit.
