Are there only Cookies?
There may be sites that use other forms of storage similar to Cookies but with more capacity, such as other forms of local data storage on the customer's computer, for example:
- LocalStorage and HTML5 sessionStorage: Space that the web can use on the user's computer. You can usually delete its contents deleting the browsing history.
- Flash "Local Shared Objects" (Silverlight's "isolated storage"): They are stored inside the Microsoft folder where you have the user profile. You have to go into the folder and delete it. (Example: vimeo videos).
- Flash is used to incorporate multimedia elements into a website, and to do so stores files on the user's computer.
- The web beacon serves to track your activity, inserting a mini image that you don't even notice. When you browse the web, it loads along with the page, and the server where the photo is downloaded records the time of access, or the number of times you have accessed it.
These files are more intrusive than Cookies, as they are more complicated to delete, store more information, and are independent of the browser being used. We do not use this type of storage.
