On all websites that use cookie technology there must be a “Cookies Policy” in order to clearly inform the user of what cookies are, their purpose, the data collected according to the types of cookies, how these data are collected and used, storage time, etc.
It is important to collect users’ consent before browsing begins, so there must be in the COOKIES NOTICE a direct link to the COOKIES POLICY. The consent must be informed, therefore this Cookies Policy constitutes the complete information that the website must provide to all users.
Bear in mind that in the section “What types of cookies are used on the website?” and the information tables at the end should only indicate the cookies used on the website: own, third party, technical, analytical, session, etc. For this, request the information from your website provider.
An example text is proposed below, which can be adapted according to the cookies used by your website.
What are cookies?
The term “cookie” in the field of web browsing is something completely different from its literal meaning.
When you access our website, a small amount of text called a “cookie” is stored on your device’s browser. This text contains varied information on your browsing, habits, preferences, content personalizations, etc.
There are other technologies that work in a similar way and that are also used to collect data on your browsing activity. We will call all these technologies as a whole “cookies.”
The specific uses we will make of these technologies are described in this document.
What are cookies used for on this website?
Cookies are an essential part of how our website works. The main purpose of our cookies is to improve your browsing experience. For instance, to remember your preferences (language, country, etc.) during browsing and on future visits. The information collected in the cookies also enables us to improve the website, adapt it to your interests as a user, speed up any searches you do, etc.
What are the cookies on this website NOT used for?
In the cookies we use, no sensitive personal identification information, such as your name, address, your password, etc., is stored.
Who uses the information stored in the cookies?
The information stored in our website’s cookies is used exclusively by us, with the exception of those identified further on as ‘third-party cookies,’ which are used and managed by external companies that provide us with services that improve user experience. For instance, the statistics that are collected on the number of visits, the most liked content, etc. is usually managed by GOOGLE ANALYTICS.
Third-party cookies are also usually used to guarantee payment transactions made through the website.
If you have accepted them, we will not ask you again, unless you delete the cookies on your device, as indicated in the following section.
If you want to revoke your consent, you will have to delete the cookies and reconfigure them.
To restrict, block or delete this website’s cookies (and those used by third parties), you can do so at any time by changing your browser’s settings. Bear in mind that these settings are different on each browser, although the cookies settings are usually found in the menu ‘Preferences’ ‘Tools’ “Options” and then in “Privacy and Security” or in “delete browsing data,” etc.
For more details on the cookies settings on each browser, you can consult the ‘Help’ menu of said browser.
What types of cookies are used on this website?
Each website uses its own cookies. On our website we use the ones indicated below:
ACCORDING TO THE COMPANY THAT MANAGES THEM
- Own cookies:
are those sent to the user’s terminal equipment from equipment or a domain managed by the publisher itself and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
- Third-party cookies:
are those sent to the user’s terminal equipment from equipment or a domain not managed by the publisher, but rather by another company that processes the data obtained through the cookies.
In the event that the cookies are sent from equipment or a domain managed by the publisher itself, but any information that is collected through them is managed by a third party, they cannot be deemed own cookies if the third party uses them for their own purposes (for instance, improving the services they provide or the provision of advertising services in favour of other companies).
ACCORDING TO THEIR PURPOSE
- Technical cookies:
are those required for the browsing and proper operation of our website, for instance to control data traffic and communication, identify the login, access parts with restricted access, remember the elements that make up an order, carry out an order purchase process, arrange the payment, control service security related fraud, carry out a request to register or participate at an event, count visits for the purposes of the billing of the software licence with which the service operates (website, platform or application), use security elements during browsing, store content for the dissemination of videos or sound, enable dynamic content (for instance, text or image animation) or share content through social media.
- Analytical cookies:
allow the number of users to be quantified and the measurement and statistical analysis of the use that users make of the service offered. For this, your browsing on our website is analysed in order to improve the offer of products or services we offer.
- Preferences or personalisation cookies:
are those that allow information to be remembered so that the user can access the service with certain characteristics that can differentiate your experience from that of other users, such as language, number of results to be shown when the user does a search, appearance or content of the service depending on the type of browser whereby the user accesses the service or on the region from which they access the service, etc.
- Behavioural advertising cookies:
are those that, processed by us or by third parties, allow us to analyse your Internet browsing habits so that we can show you advertising related to your browsing profile.
ACCORDING TO THE PERIOD OF TIME THEY ARE ACTIVATED
- Session cookies:
are those designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a website.
They are usually used to store information that is only interesting to keep for the provision of the service requested by the user on a single occasion (for instance, a list of products purchased) and disappear when the session ends.
- Persistent cookies:
Are those in which the data remains stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed during a period defined by the party responsible for the cookie, which can be from a few minutes to several years. In this regard, a specific evaluation is required as to whether the use of persistent cookies is necessary, given that the risks for privacy could be lowered through the use of session cookies. In any case, when persistent cookies are installed, it is recommended reducing their time duration to the required minimum by dealing with the purpose of their use. For this purpose, Decision 4/2012 of GT29 indicated that for a cookie to be exempt from the duty of informed consent, its expiration must be related to its purpose. Therefore, session cookies are much more likely than persistent cookies to be deemed exempt.
