1. What are Cookies.
Most websites store a small amount of text in your browser, and this text is called a “cookie”. Cookies allow a website, among other things, to store and retrieve information about the browsing habits of a user or their equipment and, depending on the information they contain and the way in which their equipment is used, they can be used to recognise the user.
Other technologies work in a similar way to collect data about your browsing activity. In this policy, all these technologies together are referred to as “cookies”.

3. Types of Cookies
Depending on the ENTITY that manages them:
- Own Cookies: These 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: These 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 the cookies.
According to the amount of TIME they remain activated:
- Session Cookies: These are a type of cookie designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a web page. They are usually used to store information that is only relevant for the provision of the service requested by the user on a single occasion.
- Persistent cookies: These are a type of cookie in which the data remains stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the party responsible for the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years.
According to their PURPOSE:
- Technical Cookies: These are those that allow the user to browse through a website, platform or application and to use the different options or services that exist on it.
- Preference or Customisation Cookies: These are cookies that allow the user to access the service with some predefined general characteristics depending on a series of criteria in the user’s terminal (language, type of browser through which the service is accessed, regional configuration, etc.).
- Analysis or Mediation Cookies: They are those that allow the person responsible for them to monitor and analyse the behaviour of the users of the Websites to which they are linked (measuring activity, drawing up user browsing profiles, etc. in order to introduce improvements based on the analysis of the data on the use made by users of the service).
- Advertising Cookies: These are those that allow the management, in the most efficient way possible, of the advertising spaces that, where appropriate, the publisher has included on the website, application or platform from which the requested service is provided, based on criteria such as the edited content or the frequency with which the advertisements are shown.
- Behavioural Advertising Cookies: These are advertising cookies that store information about the behaviour of users obtained through the continuous observation of their browsing habits, in order to develop a specific profile to display advertising based on the same.
4. Where and What Cookies Are Used For.
Cookies are used on our website, our mobile applications and in our products and services (including advertisements, emails and applications).
- In the Personalisation section of your settings, you can indicate whether we may use information from our partners and other services to customise our website/application to your liking or whether we may use information we collect about you to market to you on other sites and applications.
- There are also online tools, such as the Digital Advertising Alliance’s browser check and the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance’s Your Online Choices site, which allow you to determine how cookies are used on the web based on the device and browser you are using.
5. How to Disable Cookies in Major Browsers.
Your browser probably offers you options for cookies. For example, most browsers allow you to block “third party cookies”, which are cookies from sites other than the one you are visiting. These options differ from browser to browser, so please refer to the settings of the browser you are using for more information.
Some browsers also include a “Do Not Track” privacy setting, which does not affect the operation of our website/application. This setting is another way for you to decide whether you want us to use information from our partners and other services to customise our website/application to your liking.
Finally, your mobile device has settings that allow you to control whether advertising partners can use information about how you use mobile applications to show you ads. On iOS devices, this setting is called “Limit ad tracking” and on Android, “Cancel ad personalisation”.
You have the possibility of configuring your browser to be warned on screen each time you receive a cookie, so that its installation on your computer is prevented.
