Cookies are files that are downloaded to your computer when you access certain web pages. Cookies allow a website, among other things, to store and retrieve information about the browsing habits of a user or their equipment, depending on the information they contain and the way in which they use their equipment.
In addition, they improve the browsing process, since they allow the website to offer the user information that may be of interest to them depending on their use and its content.
If you do not want to receive cookies, please configure your Internet browser to delete them from your computer's hard drive, block them or notify you if they are installed. To continue without changes to your cookie settings, simply continue on the website.
The cookies we use do not store any personal data, nor any type of information that can identify you, unless you want to register, voluntarily in order to use the services that we make available to you or to receive information about promotions and content of interest to you. .
- Types and purpose of cookies
Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be classified into:
- Session cookies: they expire when the user closes the browser.
- Persistent cookies: they expire depending on when the purpose for which they serve is fulfilled (for example, so that the user remains identified on the website and its services or when they are manually deleted).
Cookies depending on their objective can be classified as follows:
- Performance cookies (technical and personalization): This type of cookie remembers your preferences for the tools found in the services, so you do not have to reconfigure the service each time you visit. As an example, this typology includes: volume adjustments for video or sound players and the video transmission speeds that are compatible with your browser.
- Geo-location cookies: These Cookies are used to find out which country you are in when you request a service. This Cookie is completely anonymous, and is only used to help target content to your location.
Registration Cookies (technical and personalization): Registration Cookies are generated once the user has registered or subsequently opened their session, and are used to identify them in the services with the following objectives:
- Keep the User identified so that, if they close a service, the browser or the computer and at another time or another day they re-enter said service, they will continue to be identified, thus facilitating their navigation without having to identify themselves again. This functionality can be deleted if the user clicks on the “log out” functionality, so that this Cookie is deleted and the next time they enter the service the user will have to log in to be identified.
- Check if the user is authorized to access certain services, for example, to participate in a contest.
Analytical cookies: Every time a User visits a service or information on the website or a tool from an external provider (Google Analytics, Comscore and similar that may be added to this list if they vary in relation to the current ones) it generates an analytical cookie on the user's computer. This cookie, which is only generated during the visit, will be used on future visits to the website's services to anonymously identify the visitor. The main objectives pursued are:
- Allow the anonymous identification of browsing users through the cookie (it identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate accounting of the number of visitors and their trend over time.
- Anonymously identify the most visited content and therefore the most attractive to users.
- Know if the user who is accessing is new or repeat visit. Important: Unless the user decides to register for some service or content on the website, the cookie will never be associated with any personal data that may identify them. These Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that help optimize the user experience on the website.
- Third-party advertising cookies: In addition to the advertising managed by the website in its content or services, it may offer its advertisers the option of serving advertisements through third parties (“AdServers”). In this way, these third parties can store cookies sent from the contents of the website from the Users' browsers, as well as access the data stored therein. The companies that generate these Cookies have their own privacy policies.
