As I explained before, cookies are small files that are installed on a device (computer, tablet, mobile phone, etc.) and that are responsible for collecting and storing information related to the navigation of a user.
In many cases, cookies are very useful because they are designed to make browsing faster and easier: they recognize you when you return to a page, allow you to be identified as a user in one where you are registered, etc..
Even if you think this is not your case, I am convinced that your blog also installs this type of files on your visitors’ devices. Cookies can be classified into several types:
Cookies according to the entity that manages them
Own Cookies. They are installed from a domain managed by you, which are used to facilitate navigation within your blog or website.
Third Party Cookis. They are sent from a domain or computer that you do not manage and that will be used to process the user’s navigation data. If cookies are installed from your domain, but at the same time send information to servers or third party domains, they will also be included in this category.
Cookies according to the time they remain activated
Session Cookies. They are used only during the visitor’s navigation on a web page to provide the service during that time.
Persistent Cookies. They can last from a few minutes to years, depending on the use that will be made of them.
Cookies according to their purpose
Technical Cookies. They allow you to browse your blog and perform actions during it (sharing content on networks, making the purchase process of an order …)
Personalization Cookies. That allow to personalize the navigation of the user: language, local time, navigator that is using…
Analysis Cookies. They allow you, as the person responsible for your blog, to track and analyze the behavior of your visitors.
Advertising cookies. That will allow you to manage in the best possible way the advertising space that you have established in your blog.
Shared advertising cookies. They allow to show personalized advertising depending on the behavior and habits of the visitor during the navigation.
The Data Protection Agency establishes that you must notify by means of two layers: a first one that will appear in a visible part of your blog and another one with a more extended information that the user will be able to read if the user wishes it.
So, you must put a warning at the top or bottom of the screen with a text similar to the following (you can use the plugin that I explain later):
We use our own and third party cookies to obtain statistical data from our users’ browsing and to improve our services. If you accept or continue browsing, we consider that you accept its use. You can change your settings or get more information here (link to cookies page).
In addition, you must create a page that shows more extensive information, which you must link from the previous notice. To do this, you can use a text similar to this one:
In compliance with the provisions of Article 22.2 of Law 34/2002, of July 11, Services of the Information Society and Electronic Commerce, this website informs you, in this section, about the policy of collection and treatment of cookies.
What are cookies?

What types of cookies does this website use?
