What are cookies?
A cookie is a file that is downloaded onto your computer when you access certain web pages. Cookies allow a website, among other things, to store and retrieve information about a user’s or a device’s browsing habits and, depending on the information they may contain and the way you use your device, they might be used to identify a user.
What kinds of cookies are used in this website?
Depending on the organisation that manages them, cookies may be:
First-party cookies: Those sent to the interested party’s device from a system or domain managed by the content manager and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
Third-party cookies: Those sent to the user’s device from a system or domain not managed by the content manager, but by another organisation that processes the data gathered through the cookies.
The Website uses both first-party and third-party cookies.
Depending on the period of time they remain active:
Session cookies: They are the type of cookies intended for collecting and storing data while the user is browsing the website. They are often used to store information that is only meant for the provision of the service requested by the user just once (e.g. a list of purchased products).
Persistent cookies: They are the type of cookies which store data on the device and can be accessed and processed for a period of time established by the party responsible for the cookie, and that can range from a few minutes to several years.
This website uses both persistent cookies as well as session cookies.

Are there only cookies?
It may be that some websites use other forms of storage similar to cookies but which can store a larger amount data, like other forms of data local storage on the client’s computer, for example:
HTML5 LocalStorage and sessionStorage: Space that the website can take up on the user's device. They can be usually deleted by deleting the browsing history.
"Local Shared Objects" in Flash ("isolated storage" in Silverlight): They are stored inside the Microsoft folder where the user profile is. You have to navigate to the folder and delete it. (E.g.: vimeo videos).
Flash is used to incorporate multimedia elements to a website, and in order to do that, it stores files in the user's device.
A web beacon is used to track your activity, by inserting a mini image that the user doesn’t even notice. When you browse the web, it’s loaded along with the website, and the server where the photo is downloaded from, records the access time or how many times you have accessed it.
