COOKIES

This website does not use cookies or other technical means that might enable it to identify specific users or collect their browsing data without the user being aware of it.

 

What are cookies?
A cookie is a file that is downloaded onto your computer when you access certain web pages. Cookies enable a website, among other things, to store and retrieve information about a user’s browsing habits or their system and, depending on the information they contain and how your equipment is used, they may serve to recognise the user.

The user’s browser stores cookies on the hard disc only during the current session; they take up minimal memory space and do not harm the computer. Cookies do not contain specific personal information of any kind, and most are deleted from the hard disc when the browsing session ends (so-called session cookies).

Most browsers accept cookies by default and, regardless of these cookies, their security setup can allow or block temporary or stored cookies.

Depending on the organisation running the domain from which the cookies are sent and processing the data gathered, the said cookies can be divided into two types: same-site and third-party. There is also a second classification according to the length of time they remain stored in the client’s browser; in this case they may be session or persistent cookies. Finally, there is a further classification with five types of cookie depending on the purpose for which the data gathered is processed: technical cookies, personalisation cookies, analytics cookies, advertising cookies and behavioural advertising cookies. For further information, you can consult the Spanish Data Protection Agency’s Guide to the Use of Cookies.

 

What kind of cookies does this website use?

  • Analytics cookies: these are cookies that are processed by us or third parties to enable us to count the number of users and so produce measurements and statistical analysis of the use people make of the service we offer. To this end we analyse your browsing on our website in order to improve the range of products or services we place at your disposal.
    This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, which makes it possible to measure and analyse browsing on websites.

    Web analytics provides information about the number of users visiting the website, the number of pages viewed, the frequency and repetition of visits, how long they last, the browser used and the operator providing the service, the language, the terminal used or the city to which the user’s IP address is assigned. This information allows us to provide a better, more appropriate service through this website.
  • Third-party cookies: our website uses third-party services to enable us to improve the services we offer. This is the case with Facebook (Lu, cuser, csm, fr, s, xs), in order to measure audiences for content and then offer recommendations for products and services in the application (you can find out more about how Facebook uses cookies and how this can be blocked at www.facebook.com/help/cookies) and Google Maps, which uses cookies to view geographical locations, these being entirely run by Google (http://www.google.es/intl/es/policies/).
