Vocento’s email marketing tools use small invisible images to users in the email. This technology enables us to know if an email has been read or not, on what date, and the IP address on which it was read, etc. With this information, we carry out statistical and analytical studies of the emails in order to improve the delivery of services to which the user has subscribed and to provide information that may be of interest.
Why are they important?
- From a technical point of view, cookies enable websites to operate more flexibly and to be adapted to user preferences, e.g. by storing the language, currency or type of device used.
- They establish levels of protection and safety which prevent or make harder cyberattacks against the website or its users.
- They enable managers of each media to compile statistics from the cookies, in order to improve the quality of the user experience.
- They optimise the advertising that we show to users, providing that advertising which best reflects their interests.
