What types of cookies are used on this website?
Each web page uses its own cookies. On our website we use the ones indicated 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 editor itself and from which 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 by another entity that processes the data obtained through cookies.
In the event that cookies are served from a computer or domain managed by the editor 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, the improvement of the services it provides or the provision of advertising services in favor of other entities).
ACCORDING TO ITS PURPOSE
Technical cookies: are those necessary for navigation and the proper functioning of our website, such as, for example, controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, accessing restricted access parts, remembering the elements that make up an order, carry out the process of purchasing an order, manage the payment, control fraud related to the security of the service, make the request for registration or participation in an event, count visits for the purposes of billing the licenses of the software with which the service (website, platform or application), use security elements during navigation, store content for the broadcast of videos or sound, enable dynamic content (for example, animation of loading a text or image) or share content through social media.
Analysis cookies: they allow the number of users to be quantified and thus carry out statistical measurement and analysis of the use made by users of the service offered. For this, your browsing on our website is analyzed in order to improve the offer of products or services that we offer you.
Preference or personalization cookies: they are those that allow the user to remember information so that the user accesses the service with certain characteristics that can differentiate their experience from that of other users, such as, for example, the language, the number of results to be displayed 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 he accesses the service, etc.
Behavioral Advertising Cookies: are those that, processed by us or by third parties, allow us to analyze your Internet browsing habits so that we can show you advertising related to your browsing profile.
ACCORDING TO THE PERIOD OF TIME THEY REMAIN ACTIVATED
Session cookies: are those designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a web page. They are usually used to store information that is only interested in keeping for the provision of the service requested by the user on a single occasion (for example, a list of products purchased) and disappear at the end of the session.
Persistent cookies: are those in which the data is still stored in 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 should be specifically assessed whether the use of persistent cookies is necessary, since the risks to privacy could be reduced through the use of session cookies. In any case, when persistent cookies are installed, it is recommended to reduce their temporary duration to the minimum necessary according to the purpose of their use. For these purposes, Opinion 4/2012 of the WG29 indicated that for a cookie to be exempt from the duty of informed consent, its expiration must be related to its purpose. Because of this, session cookies are much more likely to be considered exceptions than persistent cookies.
