Similar to most websites, this site uses cookies to improve and optimise the user experience. Below, you will find detailed information about what ‘cookies’ are, what types of cookies are used by this website, how you can disable them in your browser and how to specifically block the installation of third-party cookies.

Cookie Policy

This website uses own and third-party cookies to offer you an enhanced experience and service. By browsing or using our services, the user accepts the use we make of cookies. However, the user has the option of preventing cookies from being generated and of deleting them by selecting the corresponding option in their browser. If you block the use of cookies in your browser, some website services or features may not be available.

WHAT IS A COOKIE?

Cookies are small files that some platforms, such as web pages, can install on your computer, smartphone, tablet, smart television, etc., when accessing them. They have a wide variety of potential functions: to store your navigation preferences, collect statistical information, allow certain technical features, and store and retrieve information about the browsing habits or preferences of a user or his/her computer, sometimes to the point of being able to recognise him/her, depending on the information they contain and the way the device is used. A cookie is stored on a computer to personalise and streamline a user’s browsing activity. Cookies play a very important role in improving the user experience of the website.

In other words, a cookie is a fragment of information sent by a website and stored in the user’s browser, so that the website can check the user’s previous activity. A cookie can identify not only a person, but also a combination of computer-browser-user.

WHY THIS WEBSITE USES COOKIES

Cookies are used to differentiate users and to act differently depending on who they are.  One function of cookies is user identification on a website. Users normally identify themselves by entering their credentials on a validation page. Cookies let the server know that the user is already validated or browsing the website; therefore, he/she may be allowed to access services or perform operations that are off-limits to unidentified users.

Why are they important?

  • From a technical point of view, they allow websites to function more agilely and adapt to user preferences. For example, they can store the language and currency of the country or detect the device used for access.
  • They establish levels of protection and security that prevent or hinder cyber attacks against the website and its users.
  • By using statistical data collected by cookies, media managers can improve the quality and experience of services.
  • They help us to optimise the ads we display to users, showing the ones that best match their interests.
