- Depending on how long they remain active, there are the session cookies (designed to request and store data while the user accesses a webpage) and persistent cookies (in which the data is stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the person responsible for the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years).
- Depending on the purpose for which they process the information they collect, they can be:
