WHAT IS A COOKIE?
A Cookie is a small text file that a website, app or other platform stores on your computer, tablet, smartphone or any other similar device, with information about your browsing or use, such as a tag that identifies your device. Cookies are necessary, for example, to facilitate browsing and to understand how users interact with the platforms, so that they can be improved. They are also very useful to be able to offer advertising according to the user's preferences, as well as for other purposes detailed below. Cookies do not harm your computer or device. When we talk about "Cookies" we also refer to other similar technologies of installation and/or collection of information in or on your device, such as: flash cookies, web beacons or bugs, pixels, HTML5 (local storage). In addition, the term "Cookies" also applies to the use of fingerprinting techniques, i.e. techniques that combine information to help us identify your device. Sometimes these technologies work in conjunction with cookies to collect and store information, either to provide you with certain features or services on our website, or to show you advertising on third party platforms, taking into account your browsing. This explanation is a general sample of what is meant by Cookies for information purposes only.
WHAT TYPES OF COOKIES ARE THERE?
Please review this section which provides an overview of the types of Cookies that may be used in an online environment.
Depending on the owner of the Cookies, they can be classified as follows:
- First-party cookies: These are cookies that are sent to the user's computer or device from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself, and from which the platform or service requested by the user is offered.
- Third-party cookies: These are cookies that are sent to the user's computer or device from a computer or domain that is not managed by the editor, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies.
Depending on the purpose of the Cookie, they can be classified as follows:
- Strictly necessary (technical) cookies: These are those that allow the user to browse through a website, platform or application and the use of the different options or services that exist in them such as, for example, controlling traffic, identifying data, accessing sections or content with restricted access, remembering the elements that make up a search, controlling fraud linked to the security of the service, using security elements during browsing, making the application for registration or participation in an event, storing content for the broadcast of videos or sound, enabling dynamic content (for example, loading animation of a text or image) or sharing content through social networks. Technical cookies, being strictly necessary, are downloaded by default when they allow the platform to be displayed or the service requested by the user to be provided.
- Functionality or personalisation cookies: These cookies are those that allow information to be remembered so that the user can access the service or platform with certain characteristics that can 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 used by the user or the region from which they access the service, etc. Failure to accept these Cookies may result in slow performance of the website or poorly adapted recommendations.
- Analysis cookies: These cookies allow us to quantify the number of users, the sections visited on the website and how they interact with it, in order to measure and statistically analyse the use made by users, with the aim of introducing improvements based on the analysis of the data on the use made by users of the platform or service.
- Behavioural advertising cookies: These are cookies that store information on the behaviour of users obtained through the continuous observation of their browsing habits, which allows a specific profile to be developed in order to display advertising based on this. These cookies allow the management, in the most effective way possible, of the advertising spaces that, where appropriate, the editor has included directly or in collaboration with third parties.
WHAT ARE COOKIES USED FOR ON OUR PLATFORM?
Cookies are an essential part of how our website works. The main purpose of our Cookies is to make your browsing experience more comfortable and efficient.

We also use our Cookies to continuously improve our services and Web, as well as to be able to offer personalised advertising according to your browsing habits. The information collected in the Cookies also allows us to improve our website by estimating statistical data and usage patterns (number of visits, most visited sections, visit time, etc.), to know statistically how users interact with the website in order to improve our services, as well as to adapt the Platform to your individual interests, speed up searches, etc. In any case, we never store sensitive information such as passwords, credit or debit card details, etc. in the Cookies we use.
