WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Our website can also know all the services you request so that we can offer and provide you with information suited to your tastes and preferences.
WHAT TYPES OF COOKIES ARE THERE?
According to their lifespan, cookies can be divided into:
- Session cookies: these expire when you close your browser.
- Persistent cookies: these expire when the purpose they serve is accomplished (e.g. keeping you identified in the services) or when they are deleted manually.
Cookies can also be classified according to their purpose in the following way:
Performance cookies: These types of cookies remember your preferences for service tools so that you do not need to restore the settings for a service every time you log in. These types include, for example:
- Video or audio player volume adjustments.
- The video streaming speeds compatible with your browser.
Geolocation 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 base the contents on your location.
Registration cookies: Registration cookies are generated once you have registered or log in afterwards, and are used to identify you in the services for the following purposes:
- To keep you identified so that, if you close a website, browser or computer and log in again later on or on another day, you will still be identified, simplifying your browsing and saving you from having to identify yourself again. This functionality can be deleted by clicking on the “Logout” function so that this cookie is deleted. The next time you access the website, you will have to log in to identify yourself.
- To check whether you are authorized to access certain services, such as competing in a contest.
Analytical cookies: Every time you visit a website, an external provider’s tool generates an analytical cookie on your computer. This cookie, which is only generated on your visit, will be used in upcoming visits to the website’s services to identify you anonymously. Their primary goals are:
- To enable the cookie to identify you anonymously online (it identifies Internet users and devices, not people) and, therefore, to count the approximate number of visitors and their average time-on-page.
- To anonymously identify the contents you visit most frequently and, therefore, those that most appeal to you.
- To know whether you are logging on to a website for the first time or whether you are a repeat visitor.
- Important: Unless you decide to register in a website service, the cookie will never be tied to any personally identifiable information. These cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that help to optimize your experience on the site.
Behavioral advertising cookies: These types of cookies allow extended information of the ads shown to you anonymously in the website’s services. Among other examples, they store information on how long and how often you view ad positions, your overall interaction with them and your browsing and/or behavioral patterns, as they can help to create an interest-based advertising profile, allowing ads to be offered that match your interests.
Third-party advertising cookies: In addition to the publicity managed by the website in its services, the website offers advertisers the option of inserting ads via third parties (“AdServers”). This allows these third parties to store cookies sent from the website services of your browser, as well as to access the data stored in them.
WHICH COOKIES DO WE USE?
The cookies we use on our website are:
- First-party cookies: These are cookies sent to your terminal from a computer or domain managed by the editor itself or from the device or domain where the service you requested is provided.
- Third-party cookies: These are cookies sent to your terminal from a computer or domain that is not managed by the editor, but by another entity that processes the data collected through the cookies.
HOW CAN COOKIES BE DISABLED?
You can usually reject browser cookies or the cookies used for a specific service.
All present-day browsers allow you to change cookie settings. These adjustments are usually found in the “options” or “preferences” menu of your browser. You can also configure your browser or your e-mail manager, or install free accessories to prevent web bugs from downloading when you open an e-mail.

CAN WE MAKE CHANGES TO OUR COOKIES POLICY?
Our website can change this Cookies Policy in accordance with legal and regulatory requirements or in order to adapt this policy to the instructions given by the Spanish Data Protection Agency, so we recommend you visit it from time to time. When we make significant changes to this Cookies Policy, we will notify you either via our website or by sending e-mail updates to registered users.
