They allow the user to browse a website, platform or app and to use the different options or services which exist on it, such as, for example, monitoring traffic and communicating data, identifying the session, allowing access to restricted sections, remembering the items which make up an order, undertaking the purchase process of an order, making the request for registration or participation in an event, using security elements during browsing, storing content for playing videos or sound, and sharing content on social networks.

These allow the party responsible for them to monitor and analyse the behaviour of users on the websites to which they are linked. The information collected through this type of cookie is used to measure the activity of the websites, app or platform, and for the creation of browsing profiles for the users of these sites, apps and platforms in order to make improvements based on the analysis of data on the use that users make of the service.
These allow the most effective management possible of advertising spaces which the data controller may have included on a website, app or platform from which the requested service is provided, based on criteria such as the content published or the frequency with which the advertisements are shown.

These allow the most effective management possible of advertising spaces which the data controller may have included on a website, app or platform from which the requested service is provided.
