1. What are Cookies?
Cookies are files that websites or applications install in the user’s browser or device (smartphone, tablet or smart TV) while browsing websites or applications, and they are used to store information about your visit.
- ensure webpage functionality;
- store user preferences such as language and font;
- get to know the user’s browsing experience; and
- collect anonymous statistics such as webpages the user has visited or the time spent in the website.
Using Cookies allows for the improving of the browsing experience by adapting the information and services offered for the interest of the user in order to provide a better experience when visiting the website.
2. Type, purpose and functionality
Cookies, depending on their lifespan, can be divided into session or permanent cookies. Session Cookies expire when the user closes his/her browser. Permanent Cookies expire once the objective of their use is achieved (e.g., for a user to remain identified in a website) or when they are manually deleted.
Additionally, depending on their purpose, Cookies can be classified as follows:

Advertising Cookies: These may be processed either by this website or by third parties, and allow us to manage as effectively as possible the offer of advertising spaces on the website, adapting the content of the ad to the content of the requested service or to the use made of our website. To do this we may analyse a user’s Internet browsing habits in order to show advertising related to the user’s browsing profile.
Behavioural advertising cookies: These allow the most effective management of the advertising spaces that, where appropriate, the editor has included on the website, application or platform from which the requested service is provided. This type of cookie stores information on the behaviour of visitors obtained through the ongoing observation of their browsing habits, which allows the development of a specific profile to display advertisements based on these habits.
