What are cookies?
In English, the term “cookie” means cookie, but in the field of web browsing, a “cookie” is something completely different. When you access our Web Site, a small amount of text called a “cookie” is stored on your device’s browser. This text contains various information about your navigation, habits, preferences, content customization, etc…
There are other technologies that work in a similar way and are also used to collect data about your browsing activity. We will call all of these technologies together “cookies”.
The specific uses we make of these technologies are described in this document.
What are cookies used for on this website?
Cookies are an essential part of how the Web Site works. The main purpose of our cookies is to improve your browsing experience. For example, to remember your preferences (language, country, etc.) during navigation and on future visits. The information collected in the cookies also allows us to improve the website, adapt it to your interests as a user, speed up the searches you perform, etc….
What are cookies NOT used for on this website?
No sensitive personally identifiable information such as your name, address, password, etc. is stored in the cookies we use.
Who uses the information stored in cookies?
The information stored in the cookies on our Web Site is used exclusively by us, with the exception of those identified below as “third party cookies”, which are used and managed by external entities that provide us with services that enhance the user experience. For example, the statistics that are collected on the number of visits, the most liked content, etc…
If you have accepted them, we will not ask you again unless you delete the cookies on your device as indicated in the following section. If you want to revoke consent you will need to delete cookies and reset them.
To restrict, block or delete cookies from this Web Site (and those used by third parties) you can do so, at any time, by modifying the settings of your browser. Please note that these settings are different for each browser.
In the following links you will find instructions on how to enable or disable cookies in the most common browsers.
What types of cookies are used on this website?
Each website uses its own cookies. We use the following on our website:
ACCORDING TO THE ENTITY THAT MANAGES IT
They are those that are sent to the User’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the editor itself and from which the service requested by the User is provided.
Cookies are those that are sent to the User’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the editor, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies.
In the event that the cookies are served from a computer or domain managed by the editor itself, but the information collected through these is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered as own cookies if the third party uses them for its own purposes (for example, the improvement of the services it provides or the provision of advertising services in favor of other entities).
They are those necessary for navigation and the proper functioning of our Web Site, such as, for example, controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, accessing restricted access parts, making the application for registration or participation in an event, counting visits for the purpose of billing software licenses with which the Web Site service works, using security features during navigation, storing content for broadcasting videos or sound, enabling dynamic content (for example, animation of loading text or image).
They allow us to quantify the number of users and thus perform the measurement and statistical analysis of the use made by users of the Web Site.
Preference or personalization cookies:
They are those that allow remembering information for the User to access the service with certain characteristics that may differentiate his experience from that of other users, such as, for example, the language, the number of results to be displayed 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 he accesses the service, etc.
ACCORDING TO THE LENGTH OF TIME THEY REMAIN ACTIVE
They are those designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a web page.
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.
They are those in which the data remain stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the cookie manager, which can range from a few minutes to several years. In this regard, it should be specifically assessed whether the use of persistent cookies is necessary, since privacy risks could be reduced by using session cookies. In any case, when persistent cookies are installed, it is recommended to reduce their temporary duration to the minimum necessary according to the purpose of their use. To this effect, WG29 Opinion 4/2012 indicated that for a cookie to be exempt from the duty of informed consent, its expiration must be related to its purpose. Because of this, session cookies are much more likely to be considered excepted than persistent cookies.
