• Geolocation cookies. These are used to show where a user is when requesting a service. This cookie is anonymous and, for example, is used to offer appropriate information depending on the country a user is in.
• Personalisation cookies. These enable the user to access the service with particular predefined general characteristics according to a series of criteria in the user’s terminal, such as type of browser used to access the service, the regional configuration the service is accessed from, etc.
• Analytical cookies. These allow website managers to monitor and analyse the behaviour of users of the website to which the cookies are linked. The information these cookies collect is used to measure activity on the website, platform or application and to draw up browsing profiles of users of the website, platform or application in order to make improvements based on the analysis of the data about how visitors use the website.
