A cookie is a file that is downloaded to your computer when you access certain websites. Cookies allow a website, among other things, to store and retrieve information about the browsing habits of a user or their computer and, depending on the information they contain and the way you use your computer, they can be used to recognise the user.

What types of cookies are there?

Depending on who manages them:
First-party cookies: these are those that are sent to the user’s computer from the domain managed by the website visited and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
Third-party cookies: these are those that are sent to the user’s computer from a domain that is not managed by the visited website itself, but by another entity that processes cookies.

Depending on the purpose:
Technical Cookies: these are those that allow the user to browse through a website and use the different options or services that exist on it, including those that allow us to manage and operate the website and enable its functions and services, such as, for example, controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, accessing restricted access parts, remembering the elements that make up an order, carrying out the purchasing process of an order, managing payment, controlling fraud, making the application for registration or participation in an event, counting visits, etc.
Preference or personalisation cookies: these are cookies that allow information to be remembered so that the user can access the service with certain characteristics that may differentiate their experience from that of other users, such as, for example, the language, the number of results to be shown when the user performs a search, the appearance or content of the service depending on the type of browser through which the user accesses the service or the region from which they access the service, etc.
Analysis cookies: These cookies allow us to quantify the number of users and thus carry out the measurement and statistical analysis of the use made by users of the service offered. To do this, your browsing on our website is analysed in order to improve the range of products or services that we offer.

To do so, we can analyse your Internet browsing habits and we can show you advertising related to your browsing profile.

Depending on the period of permanence:
Session cookies: these are those designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a website. They are usually used to store information that only needs to be kept for the provision of the service requested by the user on a single occasion (for example, a list of products purchased) and disappear at the end of the session.
Persistent cookies: these are cookies in which the data remain stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the party responsible for the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years.
