What are cookies?
Likewise, the Website will be able to know all the services requested by users, so that they will be able to provide or offer information appropriate to the tastes and preferences of each user.
What types of cookies exist?
Cookies, depending on their Permanence, can be divided into:
• “Session cookies”: The first ones expire when the user closes the browser.
• “Persistent cookies”. The latter expire depending on when the purpose for which they serve is fulfilled (for example, so that the user remains identified in the Services) or when they are manually deleted.
Additionally, depending on their Objective, Cookies can be classified as follows:
• Performance Cookies: This type of Cookie remembers your preferences for the tools found in the services, so you do not have to reconfigure the service each time you visit. As an example, this typology includes:
• Volume adjustments for video or sound players.
• Video transmission speeds that are supported by your browser.
• Geo-location cookies: These Cookies are used to find out which country you are in when you request a service. This Cookie is completely anonymous, and is only used to help target content to your location.
• Registration Cookies: Registration Cookies are generated once the user has registered or subsequently opened their session, and are used to identify them in the services with the following objectives:
• Keep the user identified so that, if they close a service, browser or computer and at another time or another day they re-enter said service, they will continue to be identified, thus facilitating their navigation without having to identify themselves again. This functionality can be deleted if the user clicks on the “log out” functionality, so that this Cookie is deleted and the next time the user enters the service they will have to log in to be identified.
• Check if the user is authorized to access certain services, for example, to participate in a contest.
• Analytical Cookies: Every time a User visits a service, a tool from a third-party provider generates an analytical Cookie on the user’s computer. This Cookie, which is only generated during the visit, will be used on future visits to the Website Services to anonymously identify the visitor. The main objectives pursued are:
• Allow the anonymous identification of browsing users through the “Cookie” (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate accounting of the number of visitors and their trend over time.
• Anonymously identify the most visited content and therefore the most attractive to users.
• Know if the user who is accessing is new or repeating visit.
• Important: Unless the user decides to register in a Web service, the “Cookie” will never be associated with any personal data that may identify them. These Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that help optimize the User experience on the site.
• Behavioral advertising cookies: This type of “Cookies” allows expanding the information of the advertisements shown to each anonymous user on the Web Services. Among others, the duration or frequency of viewing advertising positions, the interaction with them, or the user’s browsing and/or sharing patterns are stored as they help to form a profile of advertising interest. In this way, they allow us to offer advertising related to the user’s interests.
• Third-party advertising cookies: In addition to the advertising managed by the Website on its Services, the Website offers its advertisers the option of serving advertisements through third parties (“AdServers”). In this way, these third parties can store Cookies sent from the Web Services from the Users’ browsers, as well as access the data stored therein.
