Depending on their origin
They can be 'first-party' or 'third-party' cookies, depending on the entity that manages them. First-party cookies are those sent to the user’s terminal from a device or domain managed by the provider of the service requested by the user; in this case, this company as the entity responsible for its website. Third-party cookies are those sent to the user’s terminal from a device or domain that is not managed by the provider of the service requested by the user, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies.
Depending on their duration
They can be 'session' cookies, which are designed to collect and store data from a terminal while the user accesses the website and which expire when the browser is closed; they are primarily used to keep a user session open. They can be 'persistent' cookies, which are those that remain on the device and which expire when the objective for which they were designed has been fulfilled or when the user deletes them manually.
