2018 03 02 Yolanda Sanz miniportYolanda Sanz is Research Professor at the Institute of Agrochemistry and Food Technology (IATA-CSIC, Valencia) and head of the research group on Microbial Ecology, Nutrition & Health at IATA-CSIC. She has carried out research activities in the Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology at University of Groningen (The Netherlands), at INRA in Jouy en Josas (France), at University of Verona (Italy), at Institute of Food Research (Reading, UK) and at Check Academy of Sciences (Check Republic). She is a member of the Panel on Dietetic Products, Nutrition and Allergies (NDA) of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) since 2009 and was Vice-Chair of the Panel from 2012 to 2015.

Her scientific field of interest is the human microbiome and its influence on nutritional and health status, with a focus on inflammatory, metabolic, neurodegenerative and behavioural disorders. She is also involved in research on probiotics and prebiotics.

Currently she coordinates the MyNewGut’s project, the largest European Union project on human microbiome with 30 partners. The project aims to determine the effect of the interactions between the gut microbiota, lifestyle and the genotype, in the risk of developing immunologic and metabolic diseases, and to develop new nutritional intervention strategies to prevent diet-­‐related diseases, such as obesity.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a file that is downloaded to your computer when you access certain web pages. Cookies allow a web page, among other things, to store and retrieve information about the browsing habits of a user or their equipment and, depending on the information they contain and the way they use their equipment, they can be used to recognize the user.

Types of cookies

Classification of cookies is made according to a series of categories. However, it is necessary to take into account that the same cookie can be included in more than one category.

  1. Cookies according to the entity that manages them

    Depending on the entity that manages the computer or domain from which the cookies are sent and treat the data obtained, we can distinguish:

    • Own cookies: those that are sent to the user's terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the editor itself and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
    • Third party cookies: those that are sent to the user's terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the publisher, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies. When cookies are installed from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself, but the information collected through them is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered as own cookies.

  2. Cookies according to the period of time they remain activated

    Depending on the length of time that they remain activated in the terminal equipment, we can distinguish:

    • Session cookies: type of cookies designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a web page. They are usually used to store information that only is kept to provide the service requested by the user on a single occasion (e.g. a list of products purchased).
    • Persistent cookies: type of cookies in which the data is still stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed during a period defined by the person responsible for the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years.

  3. Cookies according to their purpose

    Depending on the purpose for which the data obtained through cookies are processed, we can distinguish between:

    • Technical cookies: those that allow the user to navigate through a web page, platform or application and the use of different options or services that exist in it, such as controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, access to restricted access parts, remember the elements that make up an order, perform the purchase process of an order, make a registration or participation in an event, use security elements during navigation, store content for the broadcast videos or sound or share content through social networks.
    • Personalization cookies: those that allow the user to access the service with some predefined general characteristics based on a series of criteria in the user's terminal, such as the language, the type of browser through which the user accesses the service, the regional configuration from where you access the service, etc.
    • Analytical cookies: those that allow the person responsible for them to monitor and analyse the behaviour of the users of the websites to which they are linked. The information collected through this type of cookies is used in the measurement of the activity of the websites, applications or platforms, and for the elaboration of navigation profiles of the users of said sites, applications and platforms, in order to introduce improvements in the analysis of the data of use made by the users of the service.
