USE OF COOKIES AND ACTIVITY FILES

We use cookies on this website to facilitate the relationship of visitors to our content and to allow us to compile statistics on the visitors we receive and their use of the website. In compliance with Directive 2009/136/EC, developed in our order by the second paragraph 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 made of our website.

WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Cookies are small files that are recorded in the browser used by each visitor to our website so that the server can remember the visit of that user later when he or she accesses our content again. Cookies allow a website, among other things, to store and retrieve information about the browsing habits of a user or their computer and, depending on the information they contain and the way they use their computer, they can be used to recognise the user. Normally, since this is not always the case, the user’s browser stores cookies on the hard disk only during the current session, occupying a minimum amount of memory space and not damaging the computer. Cookies do not contain any specific personal information, and most of them are deleted from the hard drive at the end of the browser session (so-called session cookies). This information does not reveal your identity or any personal data, nor does it access the content stored on your device, but it does allow our system to identify you as a specific user who has visited the website before, viewed certain pages, etc. and it also allows us to save your personal preferences and technical information such as the visits made or specific pages visited. Cookies do not usually store sensitive information about you, such as credit card or bank details, photographs, ID or personal information. The data they save is of a technical nature, personal preferences, personalisation of content, etc. The web server does not associate you as a person but your web browser. In fact, if you usually browse with Internet Explorer and try to browse the same website with Firefox or Chrome you will see that the website does not realise that you are the same person, because it is actually associating the browser, not the person.

WHAT TYPES OF COOKIES ARE THERE?

Technical Cookies: These are the most basic and strictly necessary for the use of the website. They are those that allow the user to navigate through a web page and use the different options or services that exist there, such as: Identifying the session, accessing parts of restricted access, making the purchase process of an order, sharing content through social networks, etc.

Analysis cookies: These are those that, either processed by us or by third parties, collect information about the type of navigation you are doing, the categories that are most displayed, language, etc. and thus perform the measurement and statistical analysis of the use made by users of the Website.

Personalisation cookies: These are those that allow the user to access the service with some general characteristics predefined according to a series of criteria in the user’s terminal, such as language, the type of browser used to access the service, the regional configuration from which the user accesses the service, etc.

Advertising cookies and behavioural advertising: These are those that, whether processed by us or by third parties, allow us to manage the offer of advertising spaces on the website in the most efficient way possible, adapting the content of the ad to the content of the service requested or to the use made of the website. To this end, we can analyse your Internet browsing habits and we can show you advertising related to your browsing profile. These cookies store information on user behaviour obtained through the continuous observation of your browsing habits, which allows us to develop a specific profile to display advertising based on it.

WHAT ARE OWN AND/OR THIRD PARTY COOKIES?

Own Cookies: Are those generated by the page you are visiting

Third Party Cookies: These are generated by services or suppliers external to the website, such as: Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, etc.
