What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file that is set in your browser when you visit a website, and which may assign a unique identifier to you.
This information does not reveal your identity, or any personal data, or access the content stored on your pc, but it does allow our system to identify you as a specific user who has previously visited the website, viewed certain pages, etc. and it also allows you to save your personal preferences.
In compliance with Directive 2009/136/CE, developed in our ordinance by the second section of article 22 of the Law on Information Society Services, following the guidelines of the Spanish Agency for Data Protection, we proceed to inform you in detail of the use that is made on our website.
The cookies are then classified according to a series of categories. However, it is necessary to bear in mind that the same cookie may be included in more than one category.
Types of cookies according to the entity that manages them
First-party cookies: They are directly stored by the website (or domain) you visit. These cookies allow website owners to collect analytics data, remember language settings, and perform other useful functions that provide a good user experience.
If first-party cookies were blocked, a user would have to sign-in every time they visited, and they wouldn’t be able to purchase multiple items while shopping online because the cart would reset after every item that was added.
Third-Party Cookies: They are created by domains that are not the website (or domain) that you are visiting. These are usually used for online-advertising or analytic purposes and placed on a website through a script or tag. A third-party cookie is accessible on any website that loads the third-party server’s code.
Types of cookies according to the period of time they remain active
Session cookies: They are a type of cookies designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a web page.
Persistent cookies: They are a type of cookies in which the data is still stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed during a period defined by the person responsible for the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years.
Types of cookies according to their purpose
Technical cookies: Are those that facilitate user navigation and the use of the different options or services offered by the website, such as identifying the session, allowing access to certain areas, facilitating orders, purchases, filling in forms, registration, etc.
Personalization cookies: Allow the user to access the services according to their preferences (language, browser, configuration…).
Advertising cookies: Allow the management of advertising spaces on and outside the website. These cookies can be for personalized advertising and thus allow the management of the advertising spaces of the website based on the behavior and browsing habits of the user, from where their profile is obtained and allow customizing the advertising that is displayed in the browser of the user or other profiles and social networks of the user.
Analysis cookies: Analysis cookies are those used to carry out anonymous analysis of the behavior of web users and that allow us to measure user activity and create navigation profiles in order to improve the website.
Session cookies: Are those that last as long as the user is browsing the website and are deleted when the browser is closed.
Persistent Cookies: These cookies are stored in the user’s terminal until they are manually deleted or the period of duration established for said cookie has ended.
Currently, most browsers are configured by default to block the installation of advertising or third-party cookies on your computer. The user can expand the origin restrictions, preventing the entry of any type of cookie, or eliminate said restrictions, accepting the entry of any type of cookies. If you are interested in admitting advertising or third-party cookies, you can configure your browser for this purpose.
The acceptance made by the user, by clicking on the ACCEPT button shown in the initial information about cookies, implies that they are explicitly consenting their use, being able to exercise their rights and revoke their consent at any time.
Below we inform you in detail of all the cookies that could be installed from our website. Depending on your browsing, the configuration of your browser and the acceptance or rejection of them, all or only some of them may be installed.
How can you control cookies?
If you do not want cookies to be saved in your browser or you prefer to receive information each time a cookie requests to be installed, you can configure your browsing options to do so.
Most browsers allow the management of cookies in 3 different ways:
– Cookies are always rejected;
– The browser asks if the user wants to install each cookie;
– Cookies are always accepted;
Your browser may also include the ability to select in detail the cookies that you want to be installed on your computer. Specifically, the user can normally accept any of the following options:
– Reject cookies from certain domains;
– Reject third party cookies;
– Accept cookies as non-persistent (they are deleted when the browser is closed); – Allow the server to create cookies for a different domain.
To allow, know, block or eliminate the cookies installed on your computer, you can do so by configuring the browser options installed on your computer.
