What do we understand by technologies similar to cookies?
Technologies similar to cookies are any type of data storage and retrieval mechanism used on the user’s device to obtain information. The most common are:
The local storage of the browser. Some websites use local storages called “sessionStorage” and “localStorage” as well as the database indexed in the browser, to store information.Local storage of browser add-ons, such as Local Flash storage (“Flash Local Shared Objects”) or the Silverlight local storage (“Isolated Objects”).
The “web beacon” is a tracking feature that is inserted into a web page (or in an email) an image hosted on an Internet server so that, when the browser or email program connects to said server to download and view the image, the connection is registered. This allows knowing that the user has viewed the web page or the email. Sometimes this image is very small or transparent so that the user is not aware of its existence.
Fingerprinting techniques that combine series of information retrieved from the browser or the device in order to distinguish a particular user during the successive visits to the websites.
