1. General information about cookies:
A cookie is a small text file that a website stores on the user’s browser. Cookies serve different purposes and are an important part of the workings of the Internet, offering countless advantages in the provision of interactive services. For example, cookies:
- Make it easier to use and navigate a website.
- Manage user sessions, reducing the number of time that passwords are required and adapting the content of a webpage to user preferences.
- Give access to restricted areas.
- Detect how users interact with the website, enabling us to improve it constantly.
- Offer advertising that is relevant to users.
They may be “session cookies”, which are erased when the user leaves the page where they were generated, or “persistent cookies”, stored on the user’s hard drive until a particular date or until the user deletes them.
Cookies can also be “first party” or “third party”. The former are those sent to the user’s computer from a server or domain managed by VIENA, while the latter are cookies sent to the user’s computer from a server or domain managed by providers of services that VIENA partners up with (for instance, a web analytics service, managed by a provider in cooperation with VIENA).
