DEFINITION AND GENERIC FUNCTION OF COOKIES
TYPES OF COOKIES USED AND THEIR PURPOSE
Technical cookies: Allow the user to browse a website, platform or application and use the different options or services it provides, including cookies that the publisher uses to manage and operate the website and enable its functions and services by, for example, controlling data traffic and communication, identifying sessions, accessing restricted-access areas, saving elements that make up an order, carrying out the purchasing process, managing payment, processing requests for registration or participation in an event, counting visits, using security elements while browsing, storing content to broadcast video and audio content, enabling dynamic content (e.g. loading text or image animation), and sharing content via social media networks.
Personalisation cookies: Allow data to be remembered so that the user accesses the service with predefined features that customise their experience. These features may include, for example, language, the number of results shown when the user conducts a search, and the appearance or content of a service according to the browser or the regional location from which the user accesses the service.
Analytical cookies: Enable the person responsible for them to monitor and analyse the behaviour of users of the websites to which they are linked, as well as quantify the impact of advertising. The information collected by analytical cookies is used to measure activity on a website, application or platform, for the purpose of making improvements based on analysis of the usage data of users of the service.
Behavioural advertising cookies: Store data on user behaviour obtained by ongoing observation of the user’s browsing habits, making it possible to generate a dedicated profile and show appropriate advertising accordingly.
Session cookies: Designed to gather and store data while the user is accessing a web page. Session cookies are generally used to store data which is only of interest for the provision of a particular service requested by the user (a list of products purchased, for example), and are permanently lost once the browser is closed.
Persistent cookies: Stored on the user’s device, where they can be accessed and processed for a specific length of time, defined by the website owner. The duration can range from a few minutes to several years.
First-party cookies: Sent to the user’s device from a computer or domain managed by the publisher of the website from which the service requested by the user is provided.
Third-party cookies: Sent to the user’s device from a computer or domain managed by a third-party entity that processes the data obtained from the cookies, rather than from a computer or domain managed by the publisher.
It is therefore possible that, when you visit our web site or open an email containing an advertisement or promotion of our products or services, a cookie may be installed in your browser which helps us to subsequently show you advertising tailored to the search you have conducted and to monitor our advertisements. These cookies, for example, enable us to determine the number of times an advert is seen, where it appears, at what time of day, etc.
All of these cookies help us to improve the service we provide, and make it easier for our users to find the information they are looking for.
HOW TO ACCEPT, REJECT, WITHDRAW CONSENT OR ELIMINATE COOKIES
You can accept or block cookies and clear your browser history from the browser you are using.
To do so, consult the options and instructions provided in your browser settings (see “HOW TO DISABLE COOKIES” below). Bear in mind that, if you accept third-party cookies, you will have to delete these from your browser settings.
INFORMATION ON DATA TRANSFER TO THIRD COUNTRIES
The international transfer of data to third countries is not anticipated.
INFORMATION ON THE CREATION OF PROFILES
Profiles may be created from the behavioural data stored in “Analytical cookies” and “Behavioural advertising cookies”, but we do not anticipate that these will affect you in any significant way, other than to show you advertisements that may be of interest to you.
