Use of cookies: what is a cookie and what is it for?

We inform you that this website uses cookies. A cookie is a text file that is sent to the web browser of your computer, mobile phone or any other device, and which serves to store and recover information when you browse our website. Cookies allow the website to recognise the user, so they are generally used to remember the navigation options that the user had chosen (for example: remembering the language you use, your user name and password, personalising the way content is displayed…). Below we inform you which specific cookies we use on this website and their function.

Through the drop-down menu that appears the first time you enter our website, or following the indications of this policy, you can modify and manage the configuration of our cookies. If you continue without modifying their configuration we will understand that you agree with them.

What kind of cookies are there?

There are several types of cookies:

Depending on who manages and uses them, they differ:

Our own cookies: these are sent to your browser from our servers or web domains, and are therefore used by us.

Third-party cookies: those sent from a server or web domain not directly managed by us, but by a third party (e.g. Google services) that also uses them.

Please note that, in the case of using third party cookies, if the cookie configuration system of this website does not allow you to avoid them, once accepted by the user, you will have to delete them from the browser options you use, or through the systems established by the third party itself.

You can find out about any transfers to third countries made by the third parties identified in this cookie policy in their corresponding policies (see the links provided in the “Owner/Know the Third Party” section).

According to the time they are active:

Session cookies: these allow the user to be identified during the live session, which means that they are memorised and are only valid for the duration of an active session, i.e. during their visit to the website, without any being left on your device.

Persistent cookies: they remain on your device and our website reads them every time you visit again. These cookies stop working after a specific date.

According to its purpose:

Technical cookies: they improve the navigation and the good functioning of the web.

Personalisation cookies: allow access to the service with predefined characteristics according to a series of criteria.

Analysis cookies: they allow us to measure and statistically analyse the number of users and what use they make of the service provided in order to improve our offer.
