Are cookies the only type of storage tools?
Some websites may use other forms of storage similar to cookies, which have more capabilities, including other forms of local storage within the user’s computer such as:
HTML5 LocalStorage and sessionStorage: Web storage that can be used on the user’s computer. Generally, deleting the Navigation history can delete them.
Flash “Local Shared Objects” (Silverlight “isolated storage”): Stored within a Microsoft folder containing the user profile. You need to access the folder and delete the contents to remove them. (Example: Vimeo videos).
These files are more intrusive than cookies, since they are more complicated to delete, store more information, and are independent from the browser used. We do not use this type of storage.
Explanation: How to comply with cookie laws and regulations.
Following recent changes in the law, prior consent from website users is required before cookies may be installed on a user’s computer. This consent is not required to be explicit (click and accept), and would be valid if obtained through an action that is considered to be related, provided that prior notice is given.
Therefore, one possible way to obtain this consent is to display information about cookies, and, after a reasonable time (e.g. one minute) or after any action is taken on the website by the user (such as clicking a link or by scrolling on the page), cookies may be installed on the user’s computer. We believe that the easiest manner in which to supply information and obtain consent from the user regarding the installation of cookies, is the information “two-layered” approach (a term coined by the Spanish Agency for Data Protection (AEPD) in its “Cookies Guide”).”
