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…

There are other technologies that work similarly and are also used to collect data about your browsing activity. We will refer to all of these technologies as “cookies.”

The specific uses we make of these technologies are described in this document.

What type of cookies are used on this website?

Each website uses its own cookies.

Classification of cookies

According to the entity that manages them

First-party cookies:

These are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a device 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 device 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 device or domain managed by the publisher itself, but the information collected through these is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered as first-party 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).

According to their purpose

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 service security, making a registration or participation request in an event, counting visits for the billing of licenses for the software 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 text or image) or sharing content through social networks.

Analytics cookies:

These allow the quantification of 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, their navigation on our website is analyzed in order to improve the offer of products or services we offer them.

Preference or customization cookies:

These are used 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 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, 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 time they remain activated

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 of interest 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 remains stored on the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the cookie controller, 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 by using session cookies. In any case, when persistent cookies are installed, it is recommended to minimize their temporal duration to the minimum necessary depending on the purpose of their use. For these purposes, Opinion 4/2012 of the WP29 indicated that for a cookie to be exempt from the duty of informed consent, its expiration must be related to its purpose. Therefore, session cookies are much more likely to be considered exempt than persistent cookies.
