What are cookies?
A cookie is a file that is downloaded to your device (computer, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you access certain web pages. Cookies allow a website, among other things, to store and retrieve information about the browsing habits of a user or their equipment and, depending on the information they contain and the way they use their equipment, they can be used to recognise the user.
What type of cookies does this website use?
Cookies can be either own (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) or third-party (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).
We use our own (technical) cookies necessary for browsing your website:
Session cookies: temporary cookies that are in the browser’s cookie file until you leave the website, so none remain on the User’s device. The information collected by these cookies is used to analyse traffic patterns on the website.
Permanent cookies: these are stored on the hard drive of the device and are read each time a new visit is made. Permanent cookies have a set expiry date and will be deactivated after this date. They are mainly used to speed up purchases and registrations.
Performance Cookies: these remember the User’s preferences for the tools found in the Services of a Website so as not to reconfigure it each time it is visited. They include:
The volume setting on video and sound players.
The video transmission speed to be compatible with the browser used.
The products chosen in “shopping carts” in E-commerce.
Geo-Location Cookies: they find out which country you are in when you request a Service. It is an anonymous cookie that only helps to target content to your location.
Registration Cookies: these are generated when a User has registered or logged in and are used to identify you. Its objectives:
To keep the User identified. Thus, if he/she closes a Service, the browser or the computer at another time or on another day, he/she can enter the Service again, without having to identify him/herself again. If the User “logs out” the cookie is deleted, and the next time he/she will have to log in.
Check that the User is authorised to access certain Services.
Some Websites may connect to social networks such as Facebook or Twitter. If the User registers for a Service with credentials from a social network, he/she is authorising the social network to store a Cookie that remembers him/her and guarantees access to the Service until it expires. The User can delete this Cookie and cancel access to the Services through the specific social network, in their preferences.
Analytical Cookies: these are generated each time a User visits a Website, by a tool from an external provider (Google Analytics, Yahoo Web Analytics, Urchin and similar). The Cookie is created during the visit and will be used to identify the User anonymously. The main objectives pursued are:
– To identify Users anonymously through the Cookie (it identifies browsers and devices, not people) in order to count visitors and their trends over time.
– Identify anonymously the most visited contents for Users.
To know if the User is a new or repeat visitor.
Important: The “Cookie” will never be associated with any personal data, they are only used for statistical purposes to help optimise the usability of the site.
