What types of cookies does our website use?
Depending on the entity that manages them:
- Own cookies: Own cookies are those sent to the user's equipment from equipment or a domain managed by the publisher itself and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
- Third-party cookies: Third-party cookies are those sent to the user's equipment from equipment or a domain that is not managed by the publisher, but instead by another entity that handles the data obtained through the cookies. If the cookies are installed from equipment or a domain managed by the publisher itself, but the information collected through them is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered to be the publisher's cookies.
According to the length of time that they remain active:
- Session cookies: This is a type of cookie designed to gather and store data while you are accessing our website.
- Persistent cookies: This is a type of cookie where data are stored on the terminal and can be accessed and handled for a specific period of time, which may span from several minutes to several years.
The cookies used by the web site will only be associated to an anonymous user and his computer, and will not give access by themselves to the user’s personal data.
By using cookies the server where the web page is located might recognise the browser used by the user and make his browsing easier, granting previously registered users, for example, access to restricted areas without having to register each time they visit. Cookies are also used to measure audience and traffic parameters, as well as control progress and numbers of entries.
The web site servers will be able to detect automatically the IP address and the domain name used by the user. An IP address is a number automatically assigned to a computer when connected to the net. All this information is registered in a file of server activity duly registered allowing subsequent data processing in order to obtain merely statistic measurements to know the number of pages impressions, number of visits to a web service, order of visits, access point, etc.
