- FUNCTIONAL COOKIES
This type of cookie remembers your preferences for the tools located in the services, so you do not have to reconfigure the service every time you visit. These cookies will not gather any information about you that may be used for advertising purposes or information about your preferences (such as your user data) beyond that visit in particular.
- ANALYTICAL PERFORMANCE COOKIES
Every time a user visits a service, a tool from an external provider (Omniture, Netscope, Comscore and other similar ones that may be added to this list in the event of them varying with respect to those currently existing) generates an analytics cookie on the user’s computer. This cookie, which is only generated in the visit, will enable www.greenfo.es services to anonymously identify the visitor in subsequent visits.
The main aims they pursue are:
- To allow anonymous identification of browser users through the ”cookie” (it identifies browsers and devices, not people) and hence approximate recognition of the number of visitors and their trend over time.
- To anonymously identify the most frequently visited contents and hence those that are most attractive to users.
- To know whether the user that is accessing is a new or repeat visitor.
- BEHAVIOURAL ADVERTISING COOKIES
This type of cookies enables expansion of the information about the advertisements shown to each anonymous user, if there are any. Amongst others, they store the duration, how frequently advertising positions are viewed, interaction with them or the user’s browsing patterns or behaviour because they help to build an advertising interest profile. They thus enable advertising to be targeted that is more relevant to the user’s interests.
