Our website www.konig.cat uses “cookies” in order to acquire information on use, improve the user’s experience and check that everything is working correctly.
What is a “cookie”?
A “cookie” is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in a user’s web browser while the user is browsing that website. Every time the user loads the website, the browser sends the cookie back to the server to notify the website of the user’s previous activity. Cookies have a variety of functions which include collecting and retaining information on the user’s preferences, and generally making the website easier to use through personalisation of content.
There are several different types of cookies:
1.-First-party and third-party cookies: dependent upon who manages the domain specified in the cookie. The “party” refers to the website that is placing the cookie. If the website and the domain of the cookie are the same, then this is a first-party cookie. If the website and the domain of the cookie are different, then this is a third-party cookie.
2.-Session cookies and persistent cookies: dependent upon the length of time the cookie remains in the user’s browser.
3.-Technical cookies, personalised cookies, testing cookies, cookies for advertising and behavioural advertising cookies: dependent upon what the cookies are used for.
