Definition and function of cookies
A cookie is a file downloaded to your device 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 its device, and depending on the information they contain and how the device is used, they can be used to recognise the user.
Based on the entity that manages them:
Proprietary cookies: are those that are sent to the user’s terminal device from a device or domain managed by us and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
Third party cookies: are those that are sent to the user’s terminal device from a computer or domain that is not managed by us, but by another entity that processes data obtained through cookies.
Based on the time period that they remain activated:
Session cookies: are a type of cookie designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a website.
Persistent cookies: are a type of cookie where data remain stored in the terminal and may be accessed and processed for a period defined by the party responsible for the cookie, which may vary from a few minutes to several years.
Based on their purpose:
Techniques and customisation cookies: the first allow the user to browse through the website and to use the different services that exist, and the second allow the user to access the service with some pre-defined general features. For example, for language selection.
Analysis cookies: are those that either because they are processed by us or by third parties, allow us to quantify the number of users and thus to measure and statistically analyse the use they make of the service offered.
Advertising cookies: are those that allow the most effective possible management of the advertising spaces, if any, that the publisher has included on a web page, application or platform from which the requested service is delivered based on criteria such as the content edited or the frequency with which advertisements are displayed.
Behavioural advertising cookies: Are those that allow the most effective possible management of the advertising spaces, if any, that the publisher has included on a web page, application or platform from which the requested service is delivered. These cookies store user behaviour information obtained through the continued observation of their browsing habits, which makes it possible to develop a specific profile to display advertising based on it.
We may use our own and third party cookies to personalise your experience on this website and make it as easy as possible for you to navigate. Cookies are only associated with an anonymous user and its device, and do not contain any references that allow us to know your personal information.
You may allow, block or delete cookies installed on your device by setting up the installed browser’s options.
New interpretations by the competent regulatory body, judges or courts may result in a modification of this Cookies Policy, so users are asked to regularly check its content.
