  1. APPLICABLE LEGISLATION

The second paragraph of Article 22 of Law 34/2002, of July 11, on Information Society Services and Electronic Commerce (hereinafter LSSI-CE), provides:

  1. Service providers may use data storage and recovery devices in target terminals of service users, provided that said users have given their consent after having been supplied with clear and comprehensive information on their use, in particular, regarding the purposes of processing said data, in accordance with the provisions of Law 15/1999, of December 13, on the Protection of Personal Data.

Where technically possible and effective, the service user’s consent and acceptance of the aforementioned data processing may be given by using the appropriate settings on the browser, or other application, provided that the user should undertake its configuration during installation or update by means of an action expressly performed for this purpose.

The above does not prevent technical access or storage for the sole purpose of transmitting communication via an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provision of an Information Society Service expressly requested by the user.

As stated in the “Guidelines on the use of cookies,” published by the Spanish Data Protection Agency (hereinafter AEPD) in 2013, the LSSI-CE is applicable to any type of file or device downloaded to the terminal of a user in order to store data that can be updated and retrieved by the entity responsible for its installation. The cookie is one of the said devices with widespread use; henceforth, we will generically denominate these devices “cookies”.

Cookies used for any of the following purposes are exempt from compliance with the obligations established under Article 22.2 of the LSSI-CE in the following cases:

  • Cookies that solely enable communication between the user terminal and the network.
  • Cookies that strictly provide a service explicitly requested by the user.

 

  1. TYPES OF COOKIES ACCORDING TO PURPOSE

A cookie is a file that is downloaded onto the service user’s computer to enable access to certain web pages.

  • Customization cookies: these allow users to access the service with some features of a general nature based on a predefined set of criteria in the user’s terminal, such as for instance language, the type of browser through which to access a service, local configuration from which the service is accessed, etc.
  • Analysis cookies: these enable those responsible for the website employing these cookies to monitor and analyze the behavior of users visiting said website. The information gathered through such cookies is used to measure the activity of web sites, applications or platforms, in order to establish user navigation profiles for these sites, applications and platforms, with a view to making improvements based on analyzing the data on how users employ the service.
  • Advertising cookies: these allow advertising space to be managed in the most effective way possible. Web editors may have integrated said advertising spots into a website, application or platform from which the requested service is provided, based on criteria such as the edited content or the frequency with which ads are displayed.
  • Targeting cookies: these allow the management, in the most effective way possible, of advertising spaces that the editor may have integrated into a website, application or platform providing the requested service. These cookies store information on user behavior, obtained through the continuous observation of browsing habits, allowing a specific profile to be developed and customized ads to be displayed based on the same.
