2. What are cookies?

A cookie is a small file that a website sends to you and that your browser stores on the hard drive of your computer or other device. The stored information may be sent back to our servers or to the servers of relevant third parties during a subsequent visit.

Cookies support the operation of the website, providing many advantages in the provision of interactive services, facilitating navigation and usability.

Cookies allow the website to be tailored to your personal needs, including storing and retrieving information about a user’s browsing preferences or equipment.

In general, these technologies can be used for many different purposes, such as, for example, recognising you as a user, obtaining information about your browsing habits, or personalising the way in which content is displayed.

3. Cookies used


3.1. Owner of the cookies:

  • We use our own cookies sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by us and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
  • We use third-party cookies (for example, cookies from Google, Meta, X…) used by external companies, social networks or external content plug-ins (such as, for example, Google Maps). They are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from the equipment or domain of a third party entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies.

Please note that if you accept third-party cookies, you must delete them from your browser options or from the system offered by the third party itself.

3.2.Use of cookies

  • Technical or essential cookies necessary for the user to access and browse the website.

These are those that allow the user to browse the website and use the different options or services that exist on it, including those that are used to enable the management and operation of the website and to enable its functions and services, such as, for example, controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, accessing restricted access areas, controlling fraud linked to the security of the service, making an application for registration or participation in an event, counting visits for the purposes of billing licences for the software with which the service (website) operates, using security elements during browsing, storing content for the broadcasting of videos or sound, enabling dynamic content (e.g. text or image loading animation) or sharing content via social networks.

Also belonging to this category, due to their technical nature, are those cookies that allow the management, in the most efficient way possible, of the advertising spaces that, as another element of design or “layout” of the service offered to the user, the editor has included on a web page, based on criteria such as the edited content, without collecting information from users for other purposes, such as personalising that advertising content or other content.

These cookies do not require the user’s consent.

  • Preference or personalisation cookies

These are cookies that, processed by us or by third parties, allow us to remember information so that the user can access the service with certain characteristics that can differentiate their experience from that of other users.

In this way, you do not need to repeatedly enter the same information when you visit our website.

These cookies do not require the user’s consent.

  • Analytical cookies

Those which, processed by us or by third parties, allow us to monitor and analyse the behaviour of users of the websites to which they are linked, including the quantification of the impact of advertisements.

  • How long cookies are kept for:
  • We use session cookies, which are cookies 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 and disappear at the end of the session.
  • We use persistent cookies, which are those in which the data continues to be 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 (maximum 2 years)..

This type of information obtained through cookies will not be communicated to third parties or used for unsolicited communications.
