1. What are cookies?

The website uses cookies. Cookies are files sent to a browser by a web server to record the User’s activities on a particular website. The primary purpose of cookies is to provide the user with faster access to the selected services. Cookies also personalise the services offered by the website, providing and offering each user information that is of interest to them or that may be of interest to them, based on their use of the services.

The website uses cookies to personalise and facilitate the user’s browsing experience as much as possible. Cookies are only associated with an anonymous user and his or her computer and do not provide references that allow the user’s personal data to be deduced. Users may change the settings on their browsers so that they are notified and can reject the installation of cookies sent by the website, without this affecting users’ ability to access the contents of the website. However, we would like to point out that the website’s performance may decrease by rejecting cookies.

Registered users, who register or are logged in, will be able to benefit from more personalised and targeted services, thanks to the combination of the data stored in cookies with the personal data used at the time of registration. These users expressly authorise the use of this information for the aforesaid purpose, without prejudice to their right to reject or disable the use of cookies.

The website will also be able to know all the services requested by users, so that they can provide or offer information appropriate to each user’s tastes and preferences.

2. What types of cookies are there?

Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into:

  • Session cookies expire when the user closes the browser.
  • Persistent cookies expire depending on when the purpose for which they are used has concluded (for example, to keep the user logged in to the services) or when they are manually deleted.

In addition, depending on their purpose, cookies can be classified as:

  • Performance cookies This type of cookie remembers your preferences for the tools that are found in services, so that you do not have to configure the service every time you visit. By way of example, this type includes:
    • Volume adjustments of video or audio players.
    • The video transmission speeds that are compatible with your browser.
  • Geolocation cookies These cookies are used to find out which country you are in when you request a service. This cookie is totally anonymous and is only used to centre contents on your location.
  • Registration cookies these cookies are created after users register on a website or after logging on to a session, and are used to identify them in services for the purposes of:
    • Keep users identified so that, if they close a service, the browser or computer and return to the service at another time or on another day, the users will continue to be identified, thus facilitating browsing without having to login again. This functionality can be deleted if the user clicks on the function ‘close session’, so that the cookie is deleted and the next time the user enters the service, he or she will have to login again to be identified.
    • Verify if the user is authorised to access specific services, for example to participate in a contest.
  • Analytical cookies Every time a user visits a service, an external provider tool generates an analytics cookie on the user’s computer. This cookie that is only generated during the visit, will be used on future visits to web services to anonymously identify the visitor. The main objectives sought are:
    • Permit the anonymous identification of users browsing via this cookie (it identifies browsers and devices, not people) and, therefore, the approximate count of the number of visitors and their trends over time.
    • Anonymously identify the most visited contents and, thus, those that are most attractive to users.
    • Know whether the user accessing the site is new or a repeat visitor.
    • Important: Unless the user decides to register for a web service, the cookie will never be associated with any personal data that can identify him/her. These cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that help to optimise users’ experience on the website.
  • Behavioural advertising cookies this type of cookie lets more information be collected for the adverts shown to each anonymous user of the web services. These include storing the length of time and frequency of viewing advertising positions, interaction with them, and the user’s browsing patterns and/or behaviour, which help to create a profile with advertising interests. Thus, advertising can be shown that matches the user’s interests.
  • Third-party advertising cookies In addition to the advertising handled by the website for its services, the website offers its advertisers the option of serving adverts through third parties (ad servers). In this way, these third parties can store cookies sent by web services from the users’ browsers, as well as access the data stored on them.
