What is a cookie?
A cookie is a file that websites transfer to computers that connect to them. Although often the purposes of cookies are only technical, they can also allow, among other things, to store and retrieve information about the browsing habits of a user or his/her computer and, depending on the information they contain and the way he/she uses his/her computer, be used to recognise the user.
There are cookies that are controlled and managed by the owner of the website itself (they are called “own cookies”) and others that are controlled by third parties (they are known as “third party cookies”), for example, because they provide a tool or a functionality integrated into the website.
Certain cookies are cancelled once the navigation on the web is finished (session cookies) while others can continue to be stored on the users’ computer and be accessed for a longer period (persistent cookies).
What kind of cookies do we use and for what?
We use the following type of cookies on this website:
1. Technical cookies or those indispensable for the provision of services.
We use technical cookies, both our own and those of third parties, in order to provide the services requested by our users. These cookies are indispensable for navigation and the use of the different options and services of the web, such as, for example, controlling the traffic and communication of data, identifying the session, accessing parts of restricted access, using security elements during navigation, storing content for the diffusion of videos or sound or sharing content through social networks.
Analysis cookies allow the measurement and analysis of website activity and the development of user navigation profiles. To this end, we use GOOGLE ANALYTICS cookies to compile anonymous and aggregate statistics that allow us to understand how users use our website, in order to improve it and adjust it to the preferences of our visitors.
By way of illustration, the data derived from browsing our website that can be analysed are as follows:
The domain name of the provider (ISP) and/or IP address that gives them access to the network. For example, a user of provider xxx will only be identified by the domain xxx.es and/or the IP address. In this way we can elaborate statistics about the countries and servers that visit our website more often.
The date and time of access to our website. This allows us to find out the times of greatest influx, and make the necessary adjustments to avoid saturation problems during our peak hours.
The Internet address from which the link to our website originated. Thanks to this information, we can know the effectiveness of the different banners and links that point to our server, in order to promote those that offer better results.
The number of daily visitors to each section. This allows us to know the most successful areas and to increase and improve their content, so that users obtain a more satisfactory result.
