If you have arrived at this page after seeing the Cookie warning at the bottom of the web, receive my sincere congratulations.
It is a very good habit to be informed about the information (whether personal or not) that any website collects and stores.
Below I explain in a simple way what cookies are, what information they collect from this website and what they are used for on this site.
Due to the entry into force of the amendment of the “Law of Services of the Information Society” (LSSICE) established by Royal Decree 13/2012, I must obtain the express consent of the user (which is you) of all websites that use disposable cookies, before you browse them.
And how can you manage Cookies: go to Cookie Management.
WHAT ARE COOKIES?
You’ve probably heard of this before, but in case you haven’t, I’ll explain.
Cookies and other similar technologies such as local shared objects, flash cookies or pixels, are tools used by web servers to store and retrieve information about their visitors.
They collect fragments of information that they will then use to make your browsing experience on this website more seamless.
In this way it is possible to offer a correct (and more friendly) functioning of the site.
By using these elements, the Web server is allowed to remember some data concerning the user, such as his preferences for viewing the pages of that server, name and password, products that interest him most, etc.
REGULATORY AFFECTED COOKIES AND EXEMPTED COOKIES
I won’t always need your consent.
According to the EU directive, the cookies that require the user’s informed consent are analytical cookies and advertising and affiliation cookies, with the exception of those of a technical nature and those necessary for the operation of the website or the provision of services expressly requested by the user.
WHAT TYPES OF COOKIES ARE THERE?
You may find this a little confusing, but I’ll try to clear it up for you. About the types of cookies, there are five major groups:
- Analytical cookies: they collect information about the use of the website.
- Social cookies: are those necessary for external social networks.
- Affiliate cookies: they allow to track visits from other websites, with which the website establishes an affiliation agreement (affiliate companies). They are not used on this website.
- Advertising and behavioural cookies: they collect information about the user’s personal preferences and choices (retargeting). This information is also not collected on this website.
- Technical and functional cookies: these are strictly necessary for the use of the website and for the provision of the contracted service.
