WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small files that are recorded in the browser used by each visitor to our website so as the server can recall this user's visit when they later return to access our content. The cookies allow a website, amongst other things, to store and recover information about the browsing habits of a user or their team and, depending on the information they contain and the way it is used by their team, use this to recognise the user. Most of the time, even if there are moments when things do not work that way, the user's browser only records these cookies in the hard drive during the present session, occupying a minimum memory space and offering no risks to the machine. Cookies do not have any kind of specific personal information, and their majority is deleted from the hard disc when the browser session is over (the so-called session cookies). This information does not reveal your identity, or any personal data, or access any content stored in your device, but allows our system to identify you as a determined user that has already visited the web, viewed determined pages, etc. It also allows the storage of your personal preferences and technical information, such as the visits carried out or specific pages visited. Cookies do not usually store private information about you, such as credit cards or bank data, photos, ID card or personal information. The data they store is technical, personal preferences, personalisation of content, etc. The web server does not associate it to you as a person, but to your web browser. In fact, if you usually use Internet Explorer and decide to try navigating the same web page using Firefox or Chrome, you shall see that the page does not recognise you as the same person, because in reality it associates your navigation with the browser, not the person.
WHAT TYPE OF COOKIES ARE THERE?
Technical cookies: They are the most elementary and strictly necessary for the use of the Website. They are those that allow the user to navigate through a web page and the use of different options or services there are, for example: Identify the session, access restricted areas, carry out the purchase process of an order, share content through social networks, etc.
Analysis cookies: They are those that, prepared by us or third parties, collect information about the type of navigation you are carrying out, the categories most seen, language, etc. And thus they perform measurements and statistical analysis of the use the users make of the Website.
Personalisation cookies: They are those which enable the user to access the service with some general features predefined in line with a series of criteria at the user terminal such as, for example, language, the type of browser whereby the service is accessed, the regional configuration from where the service is accessed, etc.
Behavioural and advertising cookies: They are cookies which, prepared by us or third parties, allow the management, in the most efficient way possible, of the offer of those advertising spaces included at the web page, adapting the advertise content to the content of the service requested or to the use carried out at the web page. To do this, we analyse your Internet navigation habits and show you advertises related to your navigation profile.
