1. What are cookies?
2. What types of cookies are there?
Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into:
These expire when the user closes the browser.
These expire depending on when the purpose for which they are used is fulfilled (for example, so that the user remains identified during use of the Services) or when they are deleted manually.
Additionally, depending on their Purpose, Cookies can be classified as follows:
This type of Cookie remembers your preferences for the tools found in the services, so you don’t have to reconfigure the service each time you visit. By way of example, this typology includes:
- Volume settings of video or sound players.
- Video transmission rates that re compatible with your browser.
These Cookies are used to find out what country you are in when you request a service. This Cookie is completely anonymous, and is only used to help orient content to its location.
Registration Cookies are generated once the user has registered or has subsequently opened their session, and are used to identify the user with regards to services for the following purposes:
- To keep the user logged in so that, if a service is closed and reopened at a later date, the user will remain logged in, thus facilitating navigation without having to log in again. This feature can be deleted if the user clicks the “close session” button, so that this Cookie is deleted and the next time you enter the service the user will have to log in.
- To check whether the user is authorised to access certain services, for example, to participate in a contest.
Each time a User visits a web service, a tool from an external provider generates an analytical Cookie on the user’s computer. This Cookie that is only generated upon visiting the site, will be used in following visits to the Services of the Website to anonymously identify the visitor. The main objectives are:
- To allow the anonymous identification of the users via the “Cookie” (it identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore tracks the approximate number of visitors and how long they tend to spend on the site.
- To anonymously identify the most visited content to ascertain which content is more attractive to users.
- To know if the user who is accessing the content is new or visits repeatedly.
- Important: Unless the user decides to register for a Website service, the “Cookie” will never be associated with any personal data that can identify the user. These Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that help to optimise the experience of Users on the site.
Behavioural advertising cookies
This type of “Cookie” allows a broader spectrum of information on ads to be shown to each anonymous user of the Website Services. Among other things, it stores the duration and frequency of display of advertisements, the interaction with said advertisements, or the navigation patterns and/or user behaviour as they help to form an advertising interest profile. This way, they make it possible to offer advertising in line with the interests of the user.
Advertising and third-party cookies
In addition to the advertising managed by the Site on its Services, the Site offers its advertisers the option to serve ads through third party advertisers (“AdServers”). In this way, these third parties can store Cookies sent from the Web Services coming from the Users’browsers, as well as access the data stored in them.
