What types of cookies are there?
Depending on the entity that manages them, cookies can be:

- Third-party cookies: those that are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the publisher, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies.
According to the period of time they remain activated:
- Session Cookies: These are a type of cookies designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a web page.
