What types of cookies are used on this website?

Each website uses its own cookies. On our website we use the ones listed below:

ACCORDING TO THE ENTITY THAT MANAGES IT

Own cookies:

These are cookies that are sent to the User’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself and from which the service requested by the User is provided.

Third-party cookies:

These are cookies that are sent to the User’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the publisher, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies.

In the event that cookies are served from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself, but the information collected through them is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered as first-party cookies if the third party uses them for its own purposes (for example, the improvement of the services it provides or the provision of advertising services on behalf of other entities).

ACCORDING TO ITS PURPOSE

Technical cookies:

These are necessary for the navigation and proper functioning of our Website, such as, for example, controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, accessing restricted access parts, making the request for registration or participation in an event, counting visits for the purposes of billing licenses for the software with which the Website service operates, using security elements during navigation, storing content for the distribution of videos or sound, enabling dynamic content (for example, animation for loading a text or image) or sharing content through social networks.

Analysis cookies:

They allow the number of users to be quantified and thus perform statistical measurements and analyses of how users use the Website.

Preference or personalization cookies:

These are those that allow information to be remembered so that the User accesses the service with certain characteristics that may differentiate their experience from that of other users, such as, for example, the language, the number of results to be displayed when the User performs a search, the appearance or content of the service depending on the type of browser through which the User accesses the service or the region from which the User accesses the service, etc.

Behavioral advertising:

These are cookies that, whether processed by us or by third parties, allow us to analyse your Internet browsing habits so that we can show you advertising related to your browsing profile.

DEPENDING ON THE TIME PERIOD THEY REMAIN ACTIVATED

Session cookies:

These are designed to collect and store data while the User accesses a web page.

They are usually used to store information that is only of interest to be kept for the provision of the service requested by the User on a single occasion (for example, a list of purchased products) and disappear at the end of the session.

Persistent cookies:

These are cookies in which the data remains stored on the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the person responsible for the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years. In this regard, it must be specifically assessed whether the use of persistent cookies is necessary, since the risks to privacy could be reduced by using session cookies. In any case, when persistent cookies are installed, it is recommended to reduce their duration to the minimum necessary, taking into account the purpose of their use. For these purposes, Opinion 4/2012 of the GT29 indicated that for a cookie to be exempt from the obligation of informed consent, its expiry must be related to its purpose. Due to this, it is much more likely that session cookies will be considered exempt than persistent cookies.
