1.1 What are cookies and how do they work?

A cookie is a small piece of data (text files) that a website, when visited by a user, asks your browser to store on your device to ensure that the site functions correctly and to remember information about you, such as your language preference, your login information, your browsing experience and to collect anonymous statistical information (the pages you have visited or how long you have stayed on the website).

We use cookies set by us which are called first party cookies, and third party cookies (which are cookies from a domain other than the domain of the website you are visiting). Cookies are used for website functionality purposes and for our analytics studies.

Cookies may collect personal user data, such as the IP address of your computer or a user/visitor identifier. To learn more about how we treat this data, please see our Privacy Policy.

The specific uses we make of these technologies are described below.

1.2 Types and functionality of cookies

The Cookies, depending on their permanence, they can be divided into session cookies or permanent. The former expire when the user closes the browser. The latter expire when the purpose for which they are used is fulfilled (for example, to keep the user identified on the website) or when they are manually deleted.

Additionally, according to their objective, the Cookies can be classified as follows:

  • Strictly necessary (technical): These are those essential for the correct functioning of the page. They are normally generated when the user accesses the website or logs on to it and are used to identify the user on the website for the following purposes:
    • Keep the user identified so that, if they leave the website, browser or device and access the website again at another time, they will continue to be identified, thus facilitating their browsing without having to identify themselves again.
    • Check whether the user is authorised to access certain services or areas of the website.
  • Performance: They are used to improve the browsing experience and optimise the functioning of the website, such as storing service configurations, or storing the purchase made in a shopping cart.
  • Advertising: These are those that collect information about the advertisements shown to website users. They can be of two types:
    • Anonymous: They only collect information about the advertising spaces displayed on the website, independently of the user accessing the website, i.e. without explicitly identifying the user.
    • Personalised: Collect personal information about the user of the website by a third party for the personalisation of these advertising spaces.
  • Geolocation: These Cookies are used to find out in which country or region the user is located when accessing a service on the website in order to offer them content or services appropriate to their location.
  • Analyses: They collect information about the user's browsing experience on the website, usually anonymously, although sometimes they also allow the user to be uniquely and unequivocally identified in order to obtain reports on users' interests in the services offered by the website.
