What types of cookies are used on this website?
Each website uses its own cookies. On our website we use those listed below:
According to entity that manages it:
Own cookies: sent to your terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the editor itself and from which service requested by you is provided.
Third-party cookies: sent to your terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by editor, but by another entity that processes data obtained through cookies.
In the event that cookies are served from a computer or domain managed by the editor itself, but information collected through these is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered as own cookies if third party uses them for its own purposes (for example, improving services it provides or provision of advertising services for other entities).
Technical Cookies: necessary for browsing and proper functioning of our website, such as, for example, controlling traffic and data communication, identifying session, accessing parts of restricted access, remembering elements that make up an order, carrying out purchase process of an order, managing payment, controlling fraud linked to service security, making application for registration or participation in an event, count visits for purpose of billing licenses for software with which the service works (website, platform or application), use security features while browsing, store content for broadcasting videos or sound, enable dynamic content (for example, animation of loading a text or image) or share content through social networks.
Analysis cookies: allow us to quantify the number of users and thus carry out the measurement and statistical analysis of use made by users of service offered. To do this, your browsing on our website is analysed in order to improve the range of products or services that we offer.
Preference or personalization cookies: allow information to be remembered so that you can access the service with certain characteristics that may differentiate their experience from that of other users, such as, for example, language, number of results to be displayed when you perform a search, appearance or content of service depending on type of browser through which you access service or region from which you access service, etc.
Behavioural advertising: those that, processed by us or by third parties, allow us to analyse your browsing habits on Internet so that we can show you advertising related to your browsing profile.
According to the length of time they remain activated
Session Cookies: those designed to collect and store data while you access a web page.
They are usually used to store information that is only of interest to keep for provision of service requested on a single occasion (for example, a list of products purchased) and disappear at the end of session.
Persistent Cookies: those in which data remain stored in 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. In this regard, it should be specifically assessed whether the use of persistent cookies is necessary, since risks to privacy could be reduced by using session cookies. In any case, where persistent cookies are set, it is recommended that their temporary duration be kept to the minimum necessary, taking into account the purpose of their use. To this end, WG29 Opinion 4/2012 indicated that, for a cookie to be exempt from the duty of informed consent, its expiration must be related to its purpose. Because of this, session cookies are much more likely to be considered exempt than persistent cookies.
