1. General information on the Cookies used
For your information, please note that almost all browsers are set to automatically accept Cookies.
Users can, however, at any time, change the default configurations independently from their own device by accessing the dedicated page where they can customize the cookies they wish to activate.
As specified above, disabling or deleting cookies may, however, prevent the optimal use of certain areas and/or functions of the Website or compromise the use of the services offered.
2. What is a Cookie
A Cookie is a small text file that a website stores on the user’s computer, tablet, smartphone or other similar device, with information relating to navigation or use, such as a label identifying the device.
Cookies are necessary, among other things, to facilitate navigation and learn about how users interact with platforms so that they can be improved, as well as for other purposes described in more detail below.
Cookies do not harm your computer or device.
This explanation is a general overview for informational purposes only of what is meant by Cookies.
The specific Cookies we use are described in more detail below.
3. Existing types of Cookies
Cookies can be classified as follows, depending on the owner:
a. Own Cookies: These are those sent to the user’s computer or device from a device or domain managed by the editor itself and from which the platform or service requested by the user is offered.
b. Third-party cookies: those sent to the user’s computer or device from a device or domain not managed by the editor but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies.
Based on purpose:
a. Strictly necessary (technical) cookies: those that allow the user to navigate through a web page, platform or application, and use the different options or services that exist on the same, such as, for example, traffic control, data or session identification, access to sections or content with limited access, storage of the elements that integrate an order, execution of an order purchase process, payment management, the control of possible frauds related to the security of the service, the use of security elements during navigation, the presentation of the request for registration or participation in an event, the storage of content for the broadcast of video or sound, the enabling of dynamic content (for example, the animation of loading a text or an image) or the sharing of content via social networks. Technical cookies, being strictly necessary, are downloaded by default when they allow you to view the platform or provide the service requested by the user.
b. Personalization Cookies: these cookies allow information to be stored so that the user accesses the service or platform with certain characteristics that may differentiate their experience from that of other users, such as, for example, the language, the number of results displayed when the user performs a search, the appearance or content of the service based on the type of browser used or the region from which the user accesses the service, etc. Failure to use these Cookies may result in slow web page performance or unsuitable recommendations.
c. Analysis cookies: These are those that allow the quantification of the number of users, the sections visited on the platform and the methods of interaction with it, in order to carry out measurements and statistical analyses relating to the use made of it by users, with the aim of introducing improvements based on the analysis of data on the use that users make of the platform or service.
d. Behavioural Advertising Cookies: These are those that store information on user behaviour obtained through the constant observation of browsing habits, which allows the development of a specific profile to show advertisements based on this profile. These Cookies allow the management, in the most effective way possible, of the advertising spaces that, as the case may be, the editor has included directly or in collaboration with third parties.
4. Purposes of active Cookies on the Website
The Website uses only necessary cookies and therefore it is not possible to refuse them. These Cookies do not alter the use of the Website.
In any case, the cookies used by the Website do not save sensitive data such as passwords, credit or debit card data, etc.
The Site’s own cookies are purely technical and their main purpose is to make the browsing experience more convenient and efficient.
Third party cookies, also necessary and used by the site are summarized below:
– Cookies used for the purpose of aggregate analysis of visits to the Site
The Site makes use of tools for the aggregate analysis of navigation data that allow the Site to be improved (Google Analytics).
The information generated by the cookie about your website’s use (including your IP address, which has been anonymized by masking certain fields) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on its servers.
The aforementioned information may be used for the purpose of tracing and examining the use of the Site by users, for reporting activities and to provide other services related to the activity of the Site, as well as to perform navigation.
In order to fully protect the confidentiality of users, the Site uses the “IP Masking” function, which requires the system to obscure the last 8 digits of the user’s IP address before any type of processing is carried out, making the data analysed anonymous.
Users will be able to inhibit the use of Google Analytics and prevent its storage on their device through the appropriate browser add-on for the deactivation of Google Analytics, made available by Google at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
To activate this component, inhibiting the sending information by the system, about the user’s visit, it will be sufficient to install it by following the instructions on the screen, close and reopen the browser.
