What are cookies and what are they used for?
A cookie is a file that is downloaded to your computer, tablet, smartphone or any other device when you access certain websites. Cookies are small information files that the server sends to the computer of the person accessing the website in order for the websites to function and be displayed properly for the user and to gather statistics. Cookies cannot under any circumstances damage your computer.
These cookies allow us to distinguish you from other website users and help us to provide you with a good experience when browsing our website, as well as to improve it. Disabling these cookies will probably hinder some of the features offered by these services.
Types of cookies
Below we have classified cookies based on a number of categories. However, it is important to bear in mind that the same cookie may be included in more than one category.
Types of cookies by managing entity:
Depending on the entity that manages the computer or domain from which the cookies are sent and the data obtained is processed, cookies can be classified as follows:
- First-party cookies: These are cookies that are sent to the user’s device from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
- Third-party cookies: These are cookies that are sent to the user’s device from a computer or domain that is not managed by the publisher, rather they are sent by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies.
If cookies are installed from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself, but the information collected through them is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered first-party cookies.
At the Rafael del Pino Club of Scientists set by the Association of Rafael del Pino Excellence Scholars we do not collect or store your personal information (for example, your name or address) and, therefore, this information cannot be used to identify you.
