Cookie Policy and Local Storage

This website uses cookies and similar technologies to provide the service, as well as to allow us to improve it, through obtaining statistics on its use, and other purposes.

Browsing this website necessarily implies the use of cookies and similar technologies as long as it is necessary for its operation. Also, for certain purposes, cookies and local storage will be subject to your prior consent. You can accept or reject cookies through the configuration system set up and it is also possible to configure the browser to prevent their use.

This policy is part of our privacy policy and includes the following:

What are cookies?

Cookies are small temporary files that are created on the user’s device (computer, phone, tablet, etc.) when you visit a website, and allow it to store or retrieve information when you browse, for example, to save your usage preferences or to recognize you on subsequent visits, as well as to obtain information about your browsing habits.

When a website creates a cookie on the user’s device, it stores the address/domain of the website that created the cookie, the duration of the cookie which can range from a few minutes to several years, as well as the content of the cookie. The user can disable cookies at any time through the configuration system of this website, as well as configure their browser 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. Disabling them, may prevent you from using certain parts of the website.
  • Analytical cookies: they help us and third parties to collect information on the origin of users and their navigation within the web, for the purpose of statistical analysis in order to improve the structure and contents.
  • Advertising cookies: used to manage the advertisements that appear on other websites, and decide the content and frequency of the advertisements.
  • Behavioral advertising cookies: help to collect the user’s browsing habits in order to create a profile of their interests and to show ads tailored to them.
  • Cookies for social sharing: they are necessary to identify the user on their social networks and allow them to share content.

What do we mean by cookie-like technologies?

Similar technologies are any type of data storage and retrieval mechanism used on the user’s device to obtain information. The most common include:

  • The browser’s local storage. Some websites use local storage called “sessionStorage” and “localStorage”, as well as the browser’s indexed database, to store information.
  • Local storage of browser plug-ins, such as Flash Local Shared Objects (“Flash Local Shared Objects”) or Silverlight Isolated Objects (“Isolated Objects”).
  • The “web beacon” is a tracking technique that consists of inserting an image hosted on an Internet server on a web page (or in an e-mail) so that, when the browser or e-mail program connects to the server to download and view the image, the connection is recorded. This allows us to know that the user has viewed the web page or email. Sometimes this image is very small or transparent so that the user is not aware of its existence.
  • Fingerprinting techniques that combine information obtained from the browser or browsing equipment to distinguish a user on successive visits to different websites.

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

Cookies on this website can be classified, depending on who creates them, into two categories:

  • Own cookies: these are created and managed from our websites and domains, and the information obtained is managed directly or indirectly by us for our own purposes.
  • Third-party cookies: these 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, such as, for example: videos and multimedia elements, buttons for sharing on social networks, etc. These cookies are under the control of the third party that provides the corresponding function.

The vast majority of third-party features involve access to or collection of information (and the use of cookies) by the third party providing the feature, based on its own criteria and purposes, including the collection of your browsing habits to show you personalized advertising. The following section lists the third-party functions and features used on this website.

How long do cookies or similar technologies remain active?

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

  • Temporary session cookies: these remain stored on the browsing device until the user leaves the website; the browser deletes them at the end of the browsing session.
  • Persistent cookies: these remain on the browsing device and the web 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.

Information on the duration of cookies is included in this policy; for more information, please refer to our privacy policy, as well as information provided in the privacy policies of third party web feature providers.
