Access to this Website may involve the use of cookies. Cookies are small amounts of information that are stored in the browser used by each User on the different devices that may be used to browse. This is so that the server remembers certain information that will later be read only by the server that implemented it. Cookies make browsing easier, more user-friendly and do not damage the browsing device.

Cookies are automatic procedures for collecting information relating to the preferences determined by the User during their visit to the Website, to recognize them as a User, and to personalize their experience and use of the Website. Cookies may also, for example, help to identify and resolve errors.

The information collected through cookies may include the date and time of visits to the Website, the pages viewed, the time spent on the Website, and the sites visited just before and just after the Website. However, no cookie allows the cookie to contact the User’s telephone number or any other means of personal contact. No cookie can extract information from the User’s hard drive or steal personal information. The only way for the User’s private information to be part of the Cookie file is for the User to personally provide that information to the server.

Cookies that allow a person to be identified are considered personal data. Therefore, the aforementioned Privacy Policy shall apply to them. In this sense, the consent of the User will be necessary for the use of these cookies. This consent will be communicated, based on a genuine choice, offered using an affirmative and positive decision, before the initial processing, removable and documented.

Cookies are classified into the following categories:

  • Strictly necessary cookies
  • Performance cookies
  • Functional cookies
  • Marketing cookies

Cookies affected by the regulation and exempted cookies

Under the EU directive, analytical cookies and advertising and affiliation cookies are required to obtain the users’ informed consent, except technical cookies and those necessary for the operation of the website or provision of services expressly requested by the user.

Types of cookies

According to their purpose:

  • Technical and functional cookies: these are those that allow the user to browse through a website, platform, or application and use the different options or services that exist therein.
  • Analytical cookies: are those that allow the party responsible for them to monitor and analyse the behaviour of the users of the websites to which they are linked. This type of cookie is used to measure how websites, applications, or platforms work and to create browsing profiles of the users of these sites, applications, and platforms. This helps to improve the navigation of the users of the service.
  • Advertising cookies: are those that allow the management, in the most effective way possible, of the advertising spaces that, where appropriate, the publisher has included on a website, application, or platform from which it provides the requested service. This is done based on criteria such as the edited content or the frequency at which the advertisements are shown.
  • Social cookies: these are set by social media platforms on services to allow you to share content with your friends and networks. Social media platforms can track your online activity outside the Services. This may affect the content and messages you see on other services you visit.
  • Affiliate cookies: allow tracking of visits from other websites, with which the website enters into an affiliation agreement (affiliate companies).
  • Security cookies: they store encrypted information to prevent the data stored in them from being vulnerable to malicious attacks by third parties.

According to ownership:

  • First-party cookies: are 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: are those that are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the editor, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies.

According to the conservation period:

  • Session cookies: these are a type of cookie designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a website.
  • Persistent cookies: these are a type of cookie in which the data remains stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the party responsible for the cookie. The period can range from a few minutes to several years.

Disabling, rejecting, and deleting cookies

The User can disable, reject, and delete cookies – in whole or in part – installed on their device by configuring their browser (including, for example, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Explorer). In this regard, the procedures for rejecting and deleting cookies may differ from one Internet browser to another. Consequently, the User must follow the instructions provided by the Internet browser that he/she is using. If you reject the use of cookies – totally or partially – you may continue to use the Website, although the use of some of its features may be limited.

How to manage cookies from your browser

  • Delete cookies from your device: Cookies that are already on a device can be deleted by clearing the browser history, thereby deleting cookies from all websites visited. However, some saved information (e.g. login data or website preferences) may also be lost.
  • Manage site-specific cookies: To have more precise control over site-specific cookies, users can adjust their privacy and cookie settings in their browsers.
  • Blocking cookies: Although most modern browsers can be set to prevent cookies from being installed on devices, this may require manual adjustment of certain preferences each time a site or page is visited. In addition, some services and features may not work properly (e.g. profiled logins).
