What are cookies?

Cookies are small temporary files that are created on the user’s device (computer, phone, tablet, etc.) when visiting a website, and which allow the website to store or retrieve information when browsing, for example, to save preferences or to recognise a user on subsequent visits, as well as to obtain information about browsing habits.

When a website creates a cookie on the user’s device, it stores the address/domain of the website that created the cookie, the duration of the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years, as well as the content of the cookie. The user can disable cookies at any time through the configuration system of this website, as well as configure their browser to prevent (block) the use of cookies by certain websites, as well as delete previously stored cookies.

What are cookies used for?

The most common uses or purposes are:

  • Essential technical cookies. They are used to manage the browsing flow within the website or to keep the user connected to it. If they are disabled, some sections of the website may not function correctly.
  • Personalisation cookies. Necessary to remember certain user preferences.
  • Analytical cookies. They help us and third parties to gather information on the origin of users and their browsing habits on the website, for the purposes of statistical analysis in order to improve the structure and content.
  • Advertising cookies. Used to manage the advertisements that appear on the website, choose the content or frequency of the advertisements.
  • Behavioural advertising cookies. They help to collect the user’s browsing habits in order to create a profile of their interests and to show them bespoke advertisements.
  • Cookies for social sharing. These are necessary to identify the user in their social networks and thus allow them to share content.

What do we mean by cookies and other similar technologies?

Similar technologies are any type of data storage and retrieval mechanism that is used on the user’s device to obtain information. The most common include:

  • The browser’s local storage. Some websites use local storage called “sessionStorage” and “localStorage”, as well as the browser’s indexed database, to store information;
  • Local storage of browser plug-ins, such as Flash Local Shared Objects or Silverlight Local Storage (“Isolated Objects”).
  • The “web beacon” is a tracking technique that consists of inserting in a web page (or in an e-mail) an image hosted on an Internet server in such a way that, when the browser or e-mail programme connects to that server to download and view the image, the connection is recorded. This makes it possible to know that the user has viewed the web page or e-mail. Sometimes this image is very small or transparent so that the user is not aware of it.
  • Fingerprinting techniques that combine information obtained from the browser or browsing equipment to distinguish a user on successive visits to different websites.

What are third-party cookies and who are the recipients of the information?

Cookies on this website can be classified into two categories, depending on who creates them:

  • First-party cookies: these are created and managed from our websites and domains, and the information obtained is managed directly or indirectly by us for our own purposes.
  • Third-party cookies: these are cookies that are created and managed by other websites that, although not completely under our control, provide functions and features that we have chosen to include on our website, such as, for example: interactive maps, videos and multimedia elements, buttons for sharing on social networks, advertisements, etc. These cookies are under the control of the third-party that provides the relevant function.

The vast majority of third-party features involve access to or collection of information (and the use of cookies) by the third-party providing the feature, based on their own criteria and purposes, including monitoring browsing habits in order to show you bespoke advertising. The following section lists the third-party functions and features used on this website.

  • Temporary session cookies; they are stored on the device’s browser until the user leaves the website; the browser deletes them at the end of the browsing session.
  • Persistent cookies; they are stored on the device’s browser and the website reads them whenever the user visits the website. These cookies are automatically deleted after a certain period of time, which may vary.
