2. What types of cookies are there?
Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into:

Additionally, depending on their Purpose, Cookies can be classified as follows:

- Location cookies: These Cookies are used to find out what country you are in when you request a service. This Cookie is completely anonymous and is only used to help direct content to your location.
- Registration cookies: Registration Cookies are generated once the user has registered or has subsequently opened his session, and are used to identify him in the services for the following purposes:
- Keep the user identified so that, if you close a service, the browser or computer and at some other time or another day re-enter the service, will remain identified, thus facilitating navigation without having to re-identify. This functionality can be deleted if the user clicks the “close session” functionality, so that this Cookie is deleted and the next time you enter the service the user will have to log in to be identified.
- Check whether the user is authorized to access certain services, for example, to participate in a contest.
