1. What are cookies?
Cookies are the confusingly adorably named tiny text files that can be placed on your computer or mobile device that uniquely (but anonymously) identify your browser or device. They are unable to search your computer in any way, cannot introduce viruses to your computer, and contain no personal identifying information about you.
2. What are cookies used for?
Cookies are used by sites or services when they want to know if your computer or device has visited that site or service before. These cookies on your computer or device can then be used to help remember your preferences (such as language), help you navigate between pages efficiently, and generally improve your browsing experience.
Cookies can also be used for online advertising – by aggregating the very basic information cookies gather, informed guesses can be made about your demographic and ads targeted to you thusly.
3. What types of cookies does La página del español use?
La página del español uses these types of cookies:
- Strictly Necessary Cookies. These cookies are essential, as they enable you to move around the site and use its features. For example – the cookie to say you have/have not allowed cookies to be used on this site.

4. How long will cookies stay on my device?
The amount of time a cookie stays on your device is variable: the majority of cookies expire after the end of your browsing session– others persist for longer. In online advertising, you can generally expect most advertising cookies to last about one month at most (although again it varies).
5. First and third-party cookies?
