Types and purposes of cookies

There are different types of cookies, which are classified according to their characteristics and usage modalities, following this model:

Session cookies / Permanent cookies

Session cookies are stored temporarily in the computer memory while visiting a website (for example to keep track of the selected language). Session cookies are stored for a short period of time, and deleted when the browser is closed.

First-party cookies / Third-party cookies

Third-party cookies, on the other hand, are set by domains other than those indicated in the browser's address bar, that is by organizations that do not correspond to the website owners. For example, these cookies used to collect information for advertising purposes and personalization of content, as well as for tracking visits to the site, may be "third-party cookies".
