What are cookies?

Cookies are small, temporary files that are created on the user’s device (computer, phone, tablet, etc.) when visiting a website. These files are allowed, through user authorization, to store or retrieve information when browsing. For example, this may be to save your usage preferences, to recognize you on subsequent visits, or to obtain information about your browsing habits.

When a website creates a cookie on the user’s device, the address / domain of the website that created the cookie is stored. The duration of the cookie, as well as its content, can range from a few minutes to several years. The user can disable cookies at any time through the configuration system of this website, and they can configure their navigation program to prevent (block) the use of cookies by certain websites as well as delete previously stored cookies.

What are cookies used for?

The most common uses or purposes are:

  • Essential technical cookies. They are used to manage the navigation flow within the website, or to keep the user connected to it. When disabling them, it is possible that some section of the website does not work correctly.
  • Customization cookies. Necessary to remember certain user preferences.
  • Analytic cookies. They help us and third parties to collect information on the origin of the users and their navigation within the web. This allows us to perform a statistical analysis in order to improve the structure and content.
  • Advertising cookies. Used to manage the ads that appear on the web, decide the content, and the frequency of the ads.
  • Behavioural advertising cookies. They help to collect the user’s browsing habits to create a profile of their interests and show advertisements adapted to them.
  • Cookies for social sharing. They are necessary to identify users in their social networks, and thus, allow them to share content.

 What do we understand by technologies similar to cookies?

Technologies similar to cookies are any type of data storage or retrieval mechanism on the user’s device to obtain information. The most common are:

  • The local storage of the browser. Some websites use local storages called “sessionStorage” and “localStorage” as well as the database indexed in the browser, to store information.
  • Local storage of browser add-ons, such as Local Flash storage (“Flash Local Shared Objects”) or the Silverlight local storage (“Isolated Objects”). 
  • The “web beacon” is a tracking technique that is inserted into a web page (or in an email) as an image. This is then hosted on an Internet server so that, when the browser or email program connects to said server to download and view the image. This connection is registered. This provides notification that the user has viewed the web page or the email. Sometimes this image is very small or transparent so that the user is not aware of its existence.
  • Fingerprinting techniques that combine a series of information retrieved from the browser or the device in order to distinguish a particular user during their successive visits to the website.

What are third party cookies? Who are the recipients of the information?

In relation to the type of cookies that we use in our services, we can differentiate depending on who manages them:

  • First-party cookies are created and managed by our own websites or web domains. The information obtained is being managed directly or indirectly by us based on our own purposes.
  • Third party cookies are cookies that are created and managed from other websites that, although not completely under our control, provide functions and features that we have decided to include on our website. This may include interactive maps, videos / multimedia elements, buttons to share on social media, ads, etc. These cookies are under the control of the third party that provides the corresponding function.

The vast majority of third-party functions involve the access to or collection of information (through the use of cookies). The third party typically provides the function based on their own criteria and purposes which includes the collection of browsing habits in order to show customized ads. The next section explains the third-party functions and features used on this website.

How long are cookies or similar technologies active?

Depending on their permanence or activity time, we can differentiate between:

  • Temporary session cookies – they remain stored in the navigation equipment until the user leaves the web page. The browser deletes them at the end of the browsing session.
  • Persistent cookies – they remain on the navigation device, and the website reads them every time the user makes a new visit. These cookies are automatically deleted after a certain period of time, which can be short or very long.

This policy includes information on the duration of first-party cookies. For more information, see our privacy policy as well as the information provided in the privacy policies of third-party web function providers.
