What is a cookie?
A cookie is a file that is downloaded to your computer when you access certain websites. Cookies allow a website to store and retrieve information about a user’s browsing habits or their computer. Also, depending on the information the cookies contain and the way in which the user’s computer is used, cookies can allow a website to recognize the user.
However, these media only obtain information related to the number of pages visited, the city associated with the IP address from which the website is accessed, the number of new users, the frequency and recurrence of visits, the visit time, the browser and operating system, and/or type of device from which the visit is made. No data is obtained related to the first or last name, mailing address, or other similar data regarding the user visiting the website.
What types of cookies are there?
Strictly Necessary Cookies allow users to browse through a website, platform, or application and use the options or services that exist on it, including the management and operation of the website, and they enable its functions and services, such as by identifying the session, accessing parts of restricted access, remembering the elements that make up an order, carrying out the purchase process of an order, managing the payment, and so on. The website cannot function properly without technical cookies, so they are considered necessary.
Functional Cookies allow the website to remember information that changes the way the page behaves or the way it looks so that users can access the service with certain features that differentiate their experience from that of other users, such as the language preference, the number of results to display when the user performs a search, and the region where the user is located. If users choose these features themselves, such as by marking the flag for the language, it is considered a service that has been expressly requested, as long as the cookies are exclusively for the selected purpose of personalization.
Statistical Cookies provide an understanding of how visitors interact with websites and make it possible to carry out the statistical analysis on how people use the provided services. Information is aggregated and anonymized and therefore it can’t be used to identify individual users. The collected information is used to measure activity on the websites or application so that improvements can be made to the products and services.
Marketing or behavioral advertising cookies store information about user behavior obtained through the continuous observation of their browsing habits, which makes it possible to develop a specific profile in order to show relevant ads that would appeal to the individual user, which is more valuable for third-party advertisers. The Learnlight Learner App doesn’t use any Marketing Cookies.
Cookies may be our own, or they may be third-party cookies. Our own cookies are sent to the user’s device from a computer or domain managed by the developer of the website, from which the service requested by the user is provided. Third-party cookies are cookies that are sent to the user’s device from a computer or domain that is not managed by the website developer, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies.
Cookies may be session or persistent cookies. Session cookies are a type of cookie designed to collect and store data only while the user is accessing a website. Persistent cookies keep the data stored on the device and can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the person who created the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years.
