What types of cookies are used on this website?

Each website uses its own cookies. On our website, we use the following:

ACCORDING TO THE ENTITY THAT MANAGES IT

First-party cookies:

These are sent to the User’s terminal equipment from a machine or domain managed by the publisher itself and from which the service requested by the User is provided.

Third-party cookies:

These are sent to the User’s terminal equipment from a machine or domain that is not managed by the publisher but by another entity that processes the data obtained through cookies.

In the event that cookies are served from a machine or domain managed by the publisher itself, but the information collected through these is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered as first-party cookies if the third party uses them for its own purposes (for example, improving the services it provides or providing advertising services on behalf of other entities).

ACCORDING TO ITS PURPOSE

Technical cookies:

These are necessary for the navigation and proper functioning of our website, such as controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, accessing restricted access parts, making the registration or participation request in an event, counting visits for billing software licenses with which the website service works, using security elements during navigation, storing content for video or audio broadcasting, enabling dynamic content (for example, loading animation of text or image).

Analytical cookies:

They allow quantifying the number of users and thus carrying out the measurement and statistical analysis of the use that users make of the website.

Preference or customization cookies:

These allow remembering information so that the User can access the service with certain characteristics that can differentiate their experience from that of other users, such as language, the number of results to show 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 cookies:

These, processed by us or by third parties, allow us to analyze your Internet browsing habits so that we can show you advertising related to your browsing profile.

ACCORDING TO THE PERIOD OF TIME THEY REMAIN ACTIVATED

Session cookies:

These are designed to collect and store data while the User accesses a website.

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 purchased products) and disappear when the session ends.

Persistent cookies:

These are those in which the data remains stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the cookie controller, which can range from a few minutes to several years. In this regard, it must be specifically considered whether the use of persistent cookies is necessary, as privacy risks could be reduced by using session cookies. In any case, when persistent cookies are installed, it is recommended to minimize their temporary duration as much as necessary according to the purpose of their use. For these purposes, Opinion 4/2012 of the WP29 indicated that for a cookie to be exempt from the obligation of informed consent, its expiration must be related to its purpose. Therefore, session cookies are much more likely to be considered exempt than persistent ones.
