What are cookies?
In English, the term “cookie” means biscuit, but in the context of internet browsing, a “cookie” is something completely different. When you access our website, a small amount of text called a “cookie” is stored in your device’s browser. This text contains various information about your browsing habits, preferences, content personalizations, etc. There are other technologies that work similarly and are also used to collect data about your browsing activity. We will refer to all these technologies as “cookies.” The specific uses we make of these technologies are described in this document.

Who uses the information stored in cookies?
The information stored in cookies on our website is used exclusively by us, except for those identified below as “third-party cookies,” which are used and managed by external entities that provide us with services to improve the user experience. For example, statistics are collected on the number of visits, the most popular content, etc.

- Modify your cookie preferences from the Customize Cookies page, which you can access from the cookie notice or from the Customize Cookies page.
To restrict, block, or delete the cookies from this website (including those used by third parties), you can do so at any time by modifying your browser settings. Please note that these settings are different for each browser. In the following links, you will find instructions on how to enable or disable cookies in the most common browsers.
What types of cookies are used on this website?
Each website uses its own cookies. We use the following elements on our website:
BASED ON THE ENTITY THAT MANAGES THEM
These are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself and from which the requested service is provided.
These are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the publisher but by another entity that processes data obtained through cookies. In cases where cookies are served from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself but the information collected through them is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered as first-party cookies if the third party uses them for its own purposes (e.g., to improve the services it provides or to provide advertising services to other entities).
BASED ON THE PURPOSE
These are necessary for the navigation and proper functioning of our website, such as traffic control and data communication, session identification, access to restricted access parts, request for registration or participation in an event, counting visits for billing software licenses used by the website service, use of security elements during navigation, storage of content for video or sound broadcasting, activation of dynamic content (e.g., animation of text or images loading).
They allow us to quantify the number of users and perform statistical analysis of the users’ use of the website.
Preference or customization cookies:
These cookies allow the storage of information so that the user can access the service with certain characteristics that may differentiate their experience from that of other users, such as language, the number of results to display when the user performs a search, the appearance or content of the service based on the type of browser through which the user accesses the service or the region from which the user accesses the service, etc.
These cookies, processed by us or by third parties, allow us to analyze your browsing habits on the Internet in order to present you with advertisements related to your browsing profile.
BASED ON THE DURATION THEY REMAIN ACTIVE
These are cookies designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a web page.
They are generally used to store information that is only worth preserving for the provision of the service requested by the user on a single occasion (e.g., a list of purchased products) and that disappears at the end of the session.
These are cookies in which the data remains stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a defined period by the party responsible for the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years. In this regard, it is appropriate to specifically assess whether the use of persistent cookies is necessary, as privacy risks could be reduced by using session cookies. In any case, when setting persistent cookies, it is recommended to minimize their temporary duration to the minimum necessary considering the purpose of their use. For this purpose, Opinion 4/2012 of the Article 29 Working Party stated that for a cookie to be exempt from the requirement of informed consent, its expiration must be linked to its purpose. Therefore, session cookies are much more likely to be exempt than persistent cookies.
