What is a cookie?
A cookie is a file that is downloaded to your computer when you access certain websites. Cookies allow a website to, among other things, store and retrieve information about the browsing habits of users or their computers and, depending on the information they contain and the way in which your computer is used, they can be used to recognise you.
However, these means only obtain information related to the number of pages visited, the city to which the IP address from which it is accessed is assigned, the number of new users, the frequency and recurrence of visits, the time of visit, the browser or the operator or type of terminal from which the visit is made. No data is obtained on the name, surname, postal address or other similar data of the user who has logged on.
¿What types of cookies are there?
Technical cookies are those that allow users to browse a website, platform or application and use the different options or services that exist on it, including the management and operation of the website and enabling its functions and services, such as, for example, identifying the session, accessing parts with restricted access, remembering the elements that make up an order, carrying out the purchase process of an order, managing payment, etc. The website cannot function properly without these cookies, which is why they are considered necessary.
Preference or personalisation cookies allow the website to remember information that changes the way the page behaves or the way it looks so that users access the service with certain characteristics that can differentiate their experience from that of other users, such as, for example, the language, the number of results to be shown when the users perform a search or the region in which the users are located. If users choose these features themselves, for example by marking the language flag, this is considered an expressly requested service as long as the cookies are exclusively for the selected purpose of personalisation.
Analytical or measurement cookies are those that allow us to understand how visitors interact with the web pages and thus perform statistical analysis of the use made by users of the services provided. The information collected is used to measure the activity of websites or applications to introduce improvements in the products and services offered by the party responsible.
The marketing or behavioural advertising cookie store information on user behaviour obtained through the continuous observation of their browsing habits, which allows the development of a specific profile to show relevant and attractive ads for the individual user and, therefore, more valuable for third-party advertisers.
On the other hand, cookies can be first-party or third-party cookies. First-party cookies are those that are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the website editor itself, from which the service requested by the user is provided. Third-party cookies are those that are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the editor, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies.
In addition, cookies may be session cookies or persistent cookies. Session cookies are a type of cookie designed to collect and store data only while the user is accessing a web page. Persistent cookies are a type of cookie that means that the data remains stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a defined period of time by the party responsible for the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years.
Who is responsible for the processing of cookies on this website?
The owner of the website and the party responsible for the processing of the cookies used here, as well as their contact details, can be found in the Legal Notice on this page. There may also be cookies from third parties other than the owner of this website, as explained below.
What cookies does this Website use and why?
In the case of technical cookies, i.e. those that are essential to browse this website and receive the service offered through it, the legal basis for using them is the agreement through which you decide to use this website and use its services.
The legal basis for using the rest of the cookies is the user’s consent, which is requested upon accessing this website, and may be revoked at any time. Withdrawing that consent will not affect the possibility of browsing this website and using its services, but the processing of data previously carried out will not lose its legality due to the fact that consent has been revoked.
Which recipients will cookies be communicated to or be able to access them?
Where third-party cookies exist, as indicated above, these third parties may access and use the cookies as described above.
In accordance with current legislation, everyone has the right to obtain confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning them are being processed. Likewise, as stipulated by law, data subjects have the right to access their personal data, and to request to have any imprecise data rectified, or if applicable, to request to have them erased for reasons such as the data no longer being necessary for the purposes for which they were collected. In the case of cookies, these rights may be asserted subject to the limitations derived from the nature of these files.
Under the conditions provided for in the General Data Protection Regulation, data subjects may request the limitation of the processing of their data or their portability, in which case we will only retain them for the bringing or defending against claims.
In certain circumstances and on grounds relating to their particular situation, data subjects may object to the processing of their data. If you have given consent for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time, without affecting the lawfulness of the processing based on the consent before its withdrawal. In those cases, we will stop processing the data or, as the case may be, we will stop processing them for that specific purpose, except for compelling legitimate reasons, or for the bringing or defending against possible claims.
In the event of any infringement of your rights, especially when you have not obtained satisfaction in exercising them, you may file a complaint with the Spanish Data Protection Agency (contact details available at www.aepd.es), or other competent supervisory authority. You can also obtain further information about your rights by contacting those bodies.
