What are cookies?

In English, the term “cookie” means biscuit, but in the context of web browsing, a “cookie” is something completely different.

When you access our website, a small amount of text called a “cookie” is stored in your device’s browser. This text contains various information about your browsing, habits, preferences, content customizations, etc…

What types of cookies are used on this website?

Each website uses its own cookies.

Classification of cookies

Own cookies: these are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself and from which the requested service is provided to the user.

Third-party cookies: these are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the publisher, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies.
In the event that cookies are served from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself, but the information collected through them is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered as own cookies if the third party uses them for its own purposes (for example, improving the services it provides or providing advertising services on behalf of other entities).

Technical cookies: these are necessary for the navigation and proper functioning of our website, such as 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, managing payment, controlling fraud linked to the security of the service, carrying out the request for registration or participation in an event, counting visits for billing purposes of the software licenses with which the service works (website, platform or application), using security elements during navigation, storing content for the dissemination of videos or sound, enabling dynamic content (for example, loading animation of a text or image) or sharing content through social networks.
Analysis cookies: allow quantifying the number of users and thus carry out the measurement and statistical analysis of the use made by users of the service offered. For this purpose, their navigation on our website is analyzed in order to improve the offer of products or services that we offer them.
Preference or personalization cookies: these are those that allow remembering information so that the user accesses the service with certain characteristics that may differentiate their experience from that of other users, such as, for example, the language, the number of results to show when the user performs 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 which the user accesses the service, etc…
Behavioral advertising cookies: these 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.

Session cookies: these are designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a website.
They are usually used to store information that is only interesting to keep for the provision of the service requested by the user on one occasion (for example, a list of purchased products) and disappear when the session ends

Persistent cookies: these are those in which the data is still stored on the terminal and can be accessed and processed during a period defined by the person responsible for the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years. In this regard, it must be specifically assessed whether the use of persistent cookies is necessary, since the risks to privacy could be reduced by using session cookies. In any case, when persistent cookies are installed, it is recommended to minimize their temporary duration to the minimum necessary according to the purpose of their use. For these purposes, Opinion 4/2012 of GT29 indicated that for a cookie to be exempt from the duty of informed consent, its expiry must be related to its purpose. For this reason, session cookies are much more likely to be considered exempt than persistent ones.
