Cookies policy

What are cookies?

In English, the term “cookie” means cookie, but in the field of web browsing, a “Cookie” is something else entirely.

When you access our website, a small amount of text is stored in the browser of your device called a “cookie”. This text contains different information about your browsing, habits, preferences, content customization, etc.

There is other technology that works in a similar way and it is also used to collect data about your browsing activity. All this technology together is referred to as “cookies”.

The specific use made of this technology is described herein.

What types of cookies are used on this website?

Each web page uses its own cookies. On our website we use the ones stated below:

ACCORDING TO THE ENTITY THAT MANAGES IT

• Own cookies:
Are those that are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself and from where 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 rather by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies.

In the event that cookies are sent from a computer or domain managed by the publisher themself, but the information obtained through them is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered as being own cookies if the third party uses them for their own purposes (for example, to improve the services it provides or to provide advertising services in favour of other entities).

ACCORDING TO ITS PURPOSE

• Technical cookies:
Are those that are needed to browse around our website and for it to work properly , such as, for example, controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, accessing restricted access parts, remembering the elements that make up an order, carrying out the purchase process of an order, processing a payment, controlling fraud related to the security of the service, making a request to register or take part in an event, count visits for the purposes of billing licenses for the software used to supply  the service  (website, platform or application), use security elements while browsing, store content to broadcast videos or sound, enable dynamic content (for example, loading animation of a text or image) or share content through social networks.

• Analysis cookies:
These can be used to quantify the number of users and therefore carry out the statistical measurement and analysis of how the users’ use the service supplied. To this end, your browsing on our website is analyzed in order to improve the range of products or services that we supply you with.

• Preference or customization cookies:
Are those that allow the user to recall information so that they can access the service with certain characteristics, which can differentiate their experience from that of other users, such as, for example, the language, the number of results to show when the user carries out a search, the appearance or content of the service depending on the type of browser through which the user accesses the service or the region from where the service is accessed, etc.

• Behavioural advertising:
Are those that, processed by us or by third parties, allow us to analyze your browsing habits on the Internet so that we can show you advertising related to your browsing profile.

ACCORDING TO THE PERIOD OF TIME THEY ARE ACTIVATED

• Session cookies:
Are those designed to obtain and store data while the user accesses a web page.

• Persistent cookies:
Are those in which the data is still stored in the terminal and it can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the person who is responsible for the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years. In this regard, it should be specifically assessed whether the use of persistent cookies is necessary, seeing as the privacy risks could be reduced through the use of session cookies. In any case, when persistent cookies are installed, their temporary duration should be reduced to the minimum  according to what they are used for. To this end, Decision 4/2012 of GT29 stated that for a cookie to be exempt from the informed consent duty, its expiry date must be related to its purpose. As a result of this, session cookies are much more likely to be considered exempt than persistent cookies.
