¿Which types of cookies do we use?
This website uses “Cookies” and other similar mechanisms (henceforth, Cookies).

Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into session and persistent Cookies. The former expire when the User closes the browser. The latter expire depending on when their purpose has been served (for example if the User remains identified in the website Services) or when they are manually deleted.
TRAFFIC LOG COOKIES Traffic log Cookies are generated once the User has registered or after opening a session, and they are used to identify him/her in the Services with the following objectives:
To keep the user identified, meaning that if a Service is closed, the browser or computer at another time or another day can re-enter said Service, will still be identified, facilitating browsing without having to re-identify him/herself. This feature can be eliminated if the User clicks the feature “close session”, meaning that this Cookie is deleted and the next time that the User enters the Service, he/she will have to log in to be identified.
ANALYTICS COOKIES Each time the User visits a Service, a tool from an external provider (specifically Google and others that can be added to this list in the event that they change in relation with the current ones) generates an analytics Cookie in the User’s computer. This Cookie that is only generated in the visit, will be used in the following visits to the website to identify the visitor anonymously. The principal objectives that they aim to fulfil are:
- Allowing the anonymous identification of browsing Users using the “Cookie” (identification of browsers and devices, not persons) and as such the counting of numbers of visitors and time patterns.
- Anonymously identifying the content that is most visited and that is as such most attractive to Users.
- To know if the User is accessing for the first time or if it is a repeated visit.
Important: Unless the User decides to register with a Service of the Website, the “Cookie” will never be associated with any personal data that can identify him/her. Said Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes, which help to optimize User experience on the site.

Amongst others, the duration or frequency of visualization of publicity positions, the interaction with them, and the browsing patterns and/or behaviours of the User are stored, as they help to shape an advertising interest profile. In this way, they offer advertising in line with the User’s interests.
