The procedure for complying with the regulatory obligations regarding cookies is:
a) Make an inventory of the cookies used by the website, compiling: the name of the cookie, its entity (own or third party), its purpose and the conservation period. To carry out this task, you can use the tools for developers included in web browsers or contact the company that designed and programmed the website.
b) Define a text of the purposes in summary form to be included in the so-called «first layer». The installation of this first layer requires computer and programming skills or the use of third party tools, always bearing in mind that the user must be given the possibility to refuse the installation of cookies, except for technical cookies which cannot be refused.
2.- HOW TO INFORM AND OBTAIN INFORMED CONSENT
In its guidelines on transparency, WG29 recommends the use of layered privacy statements or notices, i.e. containing the information in layers, allowing the user to go to those aspects of the statement or notice that are of most interest to him or her, thus avoiding information fatigue, without prejudice to making the full information available in a single place or in a complete document that is easily accessible if the data subject wishes to consult it in its entirety.
The first layer, which for clarity may be identified by a commonly used term (e.g. «cookies»), would include the following information:
b) Identification of the purposes of the cookies to be used.
c) Information on whether the cookies are its own (of the website operator) or also of third parties associated with it, without it being necessary to identify the third parties in this first layer.
(d) Generic information on the type of data to be collected and used in case of user profiling (e.g. when using behavioural advertising cookies).

2.- WHAT ARE COOKIES?
A cookie is a file that is downloaded to your computer when you access certain websites. Cookies allow a website, among other things, to store and retrieve information about the browsing habits of a user or their computer and, depending on the information they contain and the way you use your computer, they can be used to recognise the user. Cookies are only associated with an anonymous user and their computer or device and do not provide references that allow their personal data to be known.
3.- TYPES OF COOKIES
3.1.- According to the entity that manages them
a.- Own cookies: These are those that are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the editor itself and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
b.- Third-party cookies: These are cookies that are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the editor, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies.
3.2.- According to the purpose
a) Technical cookies: are those that allow the user to navigate through a website, platform or application and the use of the different options or services that exist in it, including those that the editor uses to allow the management and operation of the website and enable its functions and services, such as, for example, control traffic and data communication, identify the session, access parts of restricted access, remember the elements that make up an order, make the buying process of an order, manage payment, control fraud linked to the security of the service, make the application for registration or participation in an event, count visits for the purposes of billing licenses for the software with which the service (website, platform or application) operates, use security features during browsing, store content for the broadcasting of videos or sound, enable dynamic content (for example, animation of loading text or images) or share content through social networks.
Technical cookies shall be exempt from compliance with the obligations established in article 22.2 of the LSSI when they enable the service requested by the user to be provided, as in the case of the cookies listed in the preceding paragraphs. However, if these cookies are also used for non-exempt purposes (for example, for behavioural advertising purposes), they will be subject to these obligations.
b) Preference or personalisation cookies: these are cookies that enable information to be remembered so that the user can access the service with certain characteristics that may differentiate their experience from that of other users, such as, for example, the language, the number of results to be shown when the user performs a search, the appearance or content of the service depending on the type of browser through which the user accesses the service or the region from which the user accesses the service, etc.
If it is the user himself who chooses these characteristics (for example, if he selects the language of a website by clicking on the icon of the flag of the corresponding country), the cookies will be exempt from the obligations of article 22.2 of the LSSI as they are considered a service expressly requested by the user, provided that the cookies are exclusively for the purpose selected.
c) Analysis or measurement cookies: these are cookies that allow the party responsible for them to monitor and analyse the behaviour of users of the websites to which they are linked, including the quantification of the impact of advertisements. The information collected through this type of cookies is used to measure the activity of the websites, application or platform, in order to introduce improvements based on the analysis of the usage data of the users of the service.
d) Behavioural advertising cookies: these are cookies that store information on the behaviour of users obtained through the continuous observation of their browsing habits, which allows a specific profile to be developed in order to display advertising based on the same.
3.3.- According to the length of time they remain activated
a) Session cookies: these are designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a website. They are usually used to store information that only needs to be kept for the provision of the service requested by the user on a single occasion (for example, a list of products purchased) and disappear at the end of the session.
b) Persistent cookies: these are cookies in which the data remain stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the party responsible for the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years.
