What are cookies?

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 THE ENTITY THAT MANAGES IT
• Own Cookies:
Are those that are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the editor itself and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
• Third-party cookies:
Are those that are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the editor, but by another entity that treats the data obtained through cookies.
In the event that the cookies are served from a computer or domain managed by the editor itself, but the information collected through these is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered as own cookies if the third party uses them for its own purposes (for example, improving the services it provides or the provision of advertising services for other entities).
ACCORDING TO THEIR PURPOSE
• Technical cookies:
They are those necessary for navigation and the proper functioning of our website, such as controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, accessing restricted access parts, remembering the elements that make up an order, carrying out the purchase process of an order, managing payment, controlling fraud linked to the security of the service, making the application for registration or participation in an event, count visits for the purposes of billing licenses for the software with which the service (website, platform or application) operates, use security elements during browsing, store content for broadcasting videos or sound, enable dynamic content (e.g., animation of loading a text or image) or share content through social networks.
• Analysis cookies:
Allow to quantify the number of users and thus perform the measurement and statistical analysis of the use made by users of the service offered. To do this, your browsing on our website is analyzed in order to improve the supply of products or services that we offer.
• Preference or personalization cookies:
They are those that allow remembering information for the user to access the service with certain characteristics that can differentiate their experience from that of other users, such as, for example, the language, the number of results to display when the user performs a search, the appearance or content of the service depending on the type of browser through which the user accesses the service or the region from which the user accesses the service, etc.
• Behavioral advertising:
Are those that, treated by us or by third parties, allow us to analyze your browsing habits on the Internet so that we can show you advertising related to your browsing profile.
ACCORDING TO THE LENGTH OF TIME THEY REMAIN ACTIVATED.
• Session Cookies:
These are those designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a web page.
They are usually used to store information that is only of interest to keep for the provision of the service requested by the user on a single occasion (for example, a list of products purchased) and disappear at the end of the session.
• Persistent Cookies:
These are those in which the data remain stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the person 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 the risks to privacy could be reduced by using session cookies. In any case, when persistent cookies are installed, it is recommended to reduce their temporary duration to the minimum necessary, taking into account the purpose of their use. To this effect, 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. As a result, session cookies are much more likely to be considered exempt than persistent cookies.
