The second section of article 22 of Law 43/2002, from 11th July, on information society services and e-commerce (hereafter, LSSI as per its Spanish acronym), in relation to the EU Regulation 2016/679 from 27th April 2016, on General Data Protection (hereafter, GDPR), and the Organic Law 3/2018 from 5th December, Data Protection and Guarantee of Digital Rights (hereafter LOPDGDD as per its Spanish acronym) establishes that:
- Service providers may use data storage or recovery devices on user terminal equipment, providing that the users have granted their consent thereto after been provided with clear and concise information on how their data will be used, and in particular, why their data will be processed, in accordance with the regulatory provisions on Personal Data Protection.
- When technically possible and effective, the users’ consent in accepting the processing of their data may be made using the parameters permitted on their browser or other applications.
- The foregoing will not prohibit possible technical storage or access when it comes making communications via any particular social network, or, whenever strictly necessary, for the rendering of any information society service expressly requested by the user.
The GDPR, in clause 30, mentions this technology and its impact on data protection, indicating that individuals may be associated with online identifiers provided by their devices, apps, tools, and records, as well as internet address records, session identifiers in the form of «cookies», or other identifiers, such as radio-frequency identification tags. This may leave digital footprints that, especially when combined with unique identifiers and other data received by servers, can be used to create the profiles of individuals and to identify them.
In compliance with the established regulations, below we indicate the information related to the “cookies” used.
We hereby inform you that on this website you have access to our own ‘cookies’, as well as those from third parties to provide you with a better user experience and service.

WHAT IS A COOKIE?

Their uses are varied: they can store your browsing preferences, collect statistical data, permit certain technical functions, store and collect information on browsing habits or user preferences, or on occasions, device preferences up to a certain point depending on the information contained and the way in which the device is used, for the recognising thereof. A cookie is stored on a computer to personalise and facilitate user browsing as much as possible. ‘Cookies’ play an important role in improving the user experience of a website.
In other words, a cookie is a data particle sent by a website and stored on the user’s browser, so that the website can consult the user’s previous activity. A cookie does not just identify a person, it can also incorporate a computer-browser-user combination.

TYPES OF COOKIES
Depending on the entity that is managing the device or domain from where the cookies are being sent, and which is processing the data obtained, we can distinguish between:
Our own cookies: these are those sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a device or domain managed by the editor, and from which a service requested by the user is provided.
Third-party cookies: these are those sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a device or domain that is not managed by the editor, but rather by another entity which processes the data obtained through the cookies. In the case of the cookies coming from a device or domain managed by the editor, but the information collected being managed by a third-party, these will not be considered as our own cookies if the third-party uses the data for their own purposes (for example, to improve the services it provides or to provide advertising services in favour of other entities).
Depending on the purpose of the data collected through ‘cookies´, the website may use:
Technical cookies: these allow users to browse by means of a website, platform, or app, and they also allow them to use the different options or services available on these, including those that the editor uses to grant the management and operation of the website and to enable its functions and services.
Preferential or personalised cookies: these enable the recording of information so that the user accesses a service with specific characteristics that can differ from the experience of other uses, for example, language, the number of search results that appear, the appearance or the content of the service based on the type of browser used by the user to access the service, or the region from which they are accessing the service, etc
Analysis or measurement cookies: these enable the person responsible for the cookies to monitor and analyse user behaviour on linked websites, including the quantification of the impact of the ads. The information collected through these types of cookies is used to measure the activity of websites, apps, or platforms in order to introduce improvements based on an analysis of the data of how users use the service.
Behavioural advertising cookies: these store information on user behaviour obtained through the continued observation of their browsing habits, allowing them to develop a specific profile to show them related advertisements.
Expiry. The cookies used can have the following kinds of expiries:
Session cookies: those designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a webpage. These are usually applied to store information that is only kept to provide a service requested by a user on one sole occasion (such as a list of purchased products), and they disappear once the session is over.
Persistent cookies: these are those which still store the data on the device and can be accessed and processed during a period of time defined by the responsible party for the cookie, which may vary from a few minutes to a few years. This website uses temporary session ‘cookies’ and permanent ‘cookies’.
