Cookie Policy

The purpose of this cookie policy is to ensure that you are fully informed about the cookies used on the website

¿What are cookies?

A cookie is a small file that is stored on the user’s computer, mobile or tablet to access certain web pages, applications or platforms and allow them to recognise their users.

Cookies are currently essential for the functioning of the Internet, providing countless advantages in the provision of interactive services, facilitating navigation and usability.

Cookies help to tailor websites, applications and platforms to your personal needs.

Cookies cannot harm your computer. On the other hand, having them enabled can help identify and resolve errors, as well as improve user navigability. 

Cookies allow, among other things, to store and retrieve information about the browsing preferences of a user or their device.

This website, application or platform uses cookies and/or similar technologies that store and retrieve information when you browse. In general, these technologies may be used for a variety of purposes, such as recognising you as a user, obtaining information about your browsing habits, or customising the way content is displayed.

Types of cookies

Depending on who manages the domain from which cookies are sent and data is processed, a distinction is made between your own cookies and external cookies.

Cookies can also be classified according to the length of time they are stored in the user's browser, where a distinction is made between session cookies and persistent cookies.

Finally, depending on the purpose for which the collected information is processed, cookies can be divided into the following categories:

  • Technical cookies: these allow the user to browse a website and use some of the services offered by it (such as, for example, those that serve to remember the elements of a shopping cart).
  • Customisation cookies: these allow the user to access the website with certain characteristics, such as language.
  • Security cookies: these are used to prevent or hinder attacks against the website.
  • Add-on cookies for sharing social content: the so-called plug-ins, which allow content to be shared on social networks.
  • Analysis cookies: these allow the data controller to monitor the user's behaviour.
  • Advertising cookies: these allow for managing the advertising space on the website.
  • Behavioural advertising cookies: like the previous ones, these are used to manage the advertising space on the website based on the information collected about the user's behaviour and habits, and to adapt advertising to the user's profile.
  • Geolocation cookies: these are used to determine the country where the user is located.

¿What cookies do we use?

Different types of cookies are used on the website for different purposes; the cookies used are listed below:

  • Technical or performance cookies: gap_session, XSRF-TOKEN and gdprcookienotice
  • Analytics cookies: _ga and _ga_2GDNWFGW31

Use of cookies

  • We use technical cookies which are strictly necessary for the user to be able to access and browse

These allow the user to navigate through a website, platform or application and the use of the different options or services that exist within it, including those used to allow the management and operation of the website and enable its functions and services, such as, for example, controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, accessing parts of restricted access, remembering the elements that make up an order, making the purchase process of an order, managing the payment, controlling fraud linked to the security of the service, creating an application for registration or participation in an event, counting visits for the purposes of billing licences of the software with which the service works (website, platform or application), using security features during browsing, storing content for the broadcasting of videos or sound, enabling dynamic content (for example, animation of loading text or images) or sharing content through social networks.

Also belonging to this category, by their technical nature, are cookies that allow the management, as effectively as possible, of advertising spaces, as an element of design or “layout” of the service offered to the user, that the editor has included on a website, application or platform based on criteria such as the edited content, without collecting information from users for other purposes, such as customising that advertising content or other content. 

These cookies do not require the user's informed consent.

  • We use preference or personalisation cookies which processed by us or by third parties, allow us to remember information so that the user can access the service with certain characteristics that can differentiate their experience from that of other users.

For example, the language, the number of results to display 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/she accesses the service, etc.

These cookies may require the user's informed consent if the user chooses these features themselves (for example, if they select the language of a website by clicking on the relevant country flag icon).

  • We use analysis or measurement cookies which, processed by us or by third parties, allow us to monitor and analyse the behaviour of users of the websites to which they are linked, including the quantification of the impacts of advertisements. 

The information collected through this type of cookies is used in the measurement of the activity of the websites, application or platform, in order to introduce improvements in the products or services offered based on the analysis of the usage data made by users of the service.

These cookies require the user's informed consent.

  • We use behavioural advertising cookies which, processed by us or by third parties, store information on user behaviour obtained through the continuous observation of their browsing habits, which allows us to develop a specific profile of user navigation to show them advertising based on the same.

These cookies require the user's informed consent.

Cookie retention time

  • We use session cookies which are cookies designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a web page. They are usually used to store information that only needs to be kept 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.
  • We use persistent cookies which are cookies in which the data remain stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the cookie manager, which can range from a few minutes to several years.

This type of information obtained through cookies will not be communicated to third parties, nor will it be used for unsolicited communications.
