In other words, these are small text files that are stored on the computer's hard drive and that serve to identify the user when they connect to the website again. 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 the pages to work more efficiently and achieve greater personalization and analysis of user behavior.

Additionally, depending on their purpose, cookies can be classified as follows:

Registration cookies

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:

Keeping the user identified so that, if they close a service, the browser or the computer and at another time or another day they re-enter the website, they will continue to be identified, thus facilitating their browsing without having to identify themselves again. This functionality can be suppressed if the user users logout functionality, so that this cookie is eliminated and the next time he enters the service the user will have to log in to be identified.

Additionally, some services may use connectors with social networks such as Facebook or Twitter. When the user registers in a service with credentials of a social network, he authorizes the social network to save a persistent Cookie that remembers his identity and guarantees 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.

Analytics cookies

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 in future visits to HiBit services to anonymously identify the visitor. The main objectives pursued are:

Allow anonymous identification of browsing users through the cookie (it identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate count of the number of visitors and their trend over time.

Anonymously identify the most visited content and therefore the most attractive to users. Know if the user who is accessing is new or repeats visit.

Advertising cookies

This type of cookies allows you to expand the information of the advertisements shown to each anonymous user in HiBit services. Among others, the duration or frequency of viewing advertising positions, the interaction with them, or the browsing patterns and/or behaviors of the user are stored as they help to form a advertising interest profile. In this way, they allow to offer advertising related to the interests of the user.

Third-party advertising cookies

In addition to the advertisements managed by the HiBit websites in their services, the HiBit websites offer their advertisers the option of serving advertisements through third parties (“Ad-Servers”). In this way, these third parties can store cookies sent from the HiBit services from the users' browsers, as well as access the data stored in them.

The companies that generate these cookies have their own privacy policies.
