Depending on the entity that manages the domain from which cookies are sent and the data obtained, it is possible to distinguish two types of cookies: own cookies and third-party cookies.

There is also a second classification according to the period of time in which they remain stored in the client’s browser: session cookies or persistent cookies.

Finally, there is another classification with five types of cookies depending on the purpose of the data obtained: technical cookies, personalisation cookies, analysis cookies, advertising cookie and behaviour advertising cookies.
