COMPLETE COOKIE INFORMATION
Last updated: 23/09/2021
WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small files that are installed on the hard disk or in the browser of the computer, tablet, smartphone or equivalent device with Internet browsing functions and help to, among other things: personalise the services of the website owner, facilitate browsing and usability through the website, obtain aggregate information on website visitors, enable the reproduction and display of multimedia content on the website itself, enable elements of interaction between the user and the website itself, enable security tools, etc.
- Data: This is the information obtained by means of the user’s terminal equipment through the data storage and retrieval device (cookies or other). The data will be personal when it is information about identified or identifiable natural persons, in the terms established in article 4 of the GDPR.
- Aggregate information: non-nominal information, typically numerical and for the purpose of providing statistical information.
- Terminal equipment: The device from which the user accesses the service, such as a personal computer, mobile phone, tablet, etc., from which the information is obtained.
- Publisher: owner or entity responsible for the website.
- Third party: external entity, collaborator, service provider or other entity related to the publisher, involved in the management of certain cookies.
- Party responsible for the cookie: the publisher, controller, owner of the website or, in some cases, the third party.
- Browsing habits: trends shown by the user when browsing a website, such as time spent on the site, areas visited, most frequently visited sections, origin of the visit, destination of the visit, among others.
WHAT TYPES OF COOKIES ARE THERE?
Depending on the administrating entity:
Own cookies: these are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
Third-party cookies: these are cookies sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the publisher, but by another entity that processes the data obtained via the cookies.
Depending on how long they remain active in the terminal equipment:
Session cookies: these are designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a website. 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.
Persistent cookies: these are cookies 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.
Depending on the purpose for which the data obtained through the cookies is processed:
Technical cookies: are those that allow the user to navigate a website, platform or application and the use of the different options or services that exist therein, including those that the publisher uses to allow the management and operation of the website and enable its functions and services, such as, for example, the control of traffic and data communication, identifying the session, accessing restricted access areas, remembering the elements that constitute an order, fulfilling the buying process of an order, managing payment, protecting against fraud linked to the security of the service, enabling the application for registration or participation in an event, counting visits for the purposes of billing licenses for the software with which the service works (website, platform or application), using security elements during browsing, storing content for the broadcasting of videos or sound, enabling dynamic content (for example, animation of text or images being uploaded) or sharing content through social networks. Also belonging to this category, due to their technical nature, are those cookies that allow the most efficient management possible of the advertising spaces that, as another element of design or “layout” of the service offered to the user, the publisher 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 personalising advertising content or other content.
Preference or personalisation cookies: these are cookies that allow information to be remembered so that the user can access 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 shown 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 they access the service, etc.
Analysis or measurement cookies: these are cookies that allow the party responsible for them to monitor and analyse the behaviour of users of the websites to which they are linked, including the quantification of the impact of advertisements. The information collected through this type of cookie is used to measure the activity of the website, application or platform in order to make improvements based on the analysis of the data on the use made by users of the service.
Advertising cookies: are those that allow the most effective management possible of the advertising spaces that the publisher may have included on a website, application or platform from which the requested service is provided based on criteria such as the edited content or the frequency at which the advertisements are shown.
Behavioural advertising cookies: are those that allow the management, in the most effective way possible, of the advertising spaces that, where appropriate, the publisher has included on a website, application or platform from which the requested service is provided. These cookies store information on the behaviour of users obtained through the continuous observation of their browsing habits, which allows a specific profile to be developed in order to display advertising based on the same.

Profiles of the users of our website are created via the use of third-party cookies, but they are external to us and in no instance do we have any responsibility or control over them. This profiling and the decisions taken on the data results in a higher level of personalisation and prediction of the preferences of the browsers.
By using our own cookies, we do not create profiles of the users who browse the website nor, therefore, do we make automated decisions based on this data.
The rest of the cookies that might be introduced, such as: _utma, utmb, _utmz, PISID, HSID, NID, PREF, SID, SSID and SAPISID, belong to Google and only come into play when browsing the website while a Google session is open in the browser. And then there are the cookies that arrive on using of Google Maps (APISID, HSID, NID, PREF, SID, SSID, SAPISID) and YouTube (ACTIVITY, CONSENT, GEUP, CURvQ.resume, LOGIN_INFO, VISITOR_INFO_LIVE, YSC, DKV). But similarly, these are only integrated when you have a Google account open in your browser.
On some occasions, tools might be used for interaction with social networks where other cookies are introduced, such as Facebook (act, c_user, csm, datr, fr, lu, p, presence, s, xs, reg_fb_rel, reg_fb_gate) or Twitter (__utma, __utmb, __utmc, __utmz, _ga,_twitter_sess, auth_token, guest_id, kdt, rememeber_checked_on, twid) but, as mentioned above, these cookies are only introduced if one of the social networks accounts is open in the browser.
