Are there only cookies?
There may be websites that use other forms of storage similar to cookies but with more capacity, such as other forms of local storage of data on the customer’s computer, for example:
HTML5 LocalStorage and sessionStorage: Space that the website can use on the user’s computer. Normally by deleting the Browsing history they can be deleted.
Flash “Local Shared Objects” (Silverlight’s “isolated storage”): These are stored in the Microsoft folder where the user profile is located. You have to go into the folder and delete it. (Example: vimeo videos).
Flash is used to incorporate multimedia elements in a website, and for this purpose it stores files in the user’s computer.
The web beacon is used 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 from which the picture is downloaded records the time of access, or how many 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 used. We do not use this type of storage.
