What is a cookie?
A cookie is a text file that is downloaded to your computer when you access certain web pages.
It is useful for the browser to be able to remember your visit when you browse that website again.
Cookies allow the site, among other things, to store and retrieve information about your browsing habits or your computer and, depending on the information they contain and the way you use your computer, they can be used to recognise you.
The purpose of the cookie is to adapt the content of the website to your profile and needs so that you have a better browsing experience. Without cookies, the services offered by any website would be significantly reduced.

Information that a cookie stores
Cookies store data of a technical nature, personal preferences, personalisation of content, usage statistics, links to social networks, access to user accounts, etc.
They do not usually store sensitive information about you such as credit card or bank details, photographs or personal information, etc.
The web server does not associate you as a person but your browser. In fact, if you usually browse with Google Chrome and try browsing the same website with Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer or Apple Safari you will see that the website does not realise that you are the same person because it is actually associating the information to the browser and not to the person.

Important warning about cookies
Given the way the Internet and websites work, it is not always possible to have information about cookies placed by third parties via my website. This applies especially to cases where my website contains so-called embedded elements: texts, documents, images or short films that are stored elsewhere but displayed on this website. As well as those derived from analysis plugins used by this website.

How to manage, disable and delete cookies
If you do not want a website or blog to store cookies on your computer, you can adjust your browser settings to notify you each time a cookie is requested to be downloaded or set, or to reject all cookies or only third-party cookies. You can also delete any cookies that are already on your computer.
Most browsers allow cookies to be managed in 3 different ways:
- Cookies are always rejected.
- The browser asks whether the user wishes to install each cookie.
- Cookies are always accepted.
The browser may also include the possibility to better specify which cookies are to be accepted and which are not.
Normally you have these options:
- Reject cookies from certain domains.
- Reject third party cookies.
- Accept cookies as non-persistent (they are deleted when the browser is closed).
- Allow the server to create cookies for a different domain.
You will have to adapt the configuration of each browser and device you use separately. Here are some guides on how to configure the installation of cookies in the most popular browsers:
You can opt out of Google Analytics tracking by using this browser add-on provided by Google.
Web browsers are the tools in charge of storing cookies and this is where you can exercise your right to delete or deactivate them.
In some cases it is necessary to install cookies so that the browser does not forget your decision not to accept them.
More information about cookies
And if you want to have more control over the installation of cookies, you can install programmes or add-ons in your browser, known as “Do Not Track” tools, which will allow you to choose which cookies you want to allow.
