What is a cookie?
A cookie is a file downloaded to your computer when you access certain websites. Cookies allow a website to, among other things, store and recover information about a user’s browsing habits or computer and, depending on the information they contain and the way the computer is used, they may be used to recognise the user.
However, these cookies only obtain information related to the number of pages visited, the city where the user is located (from the IP address), the number of new users, the frequency and recurrence of visits, visit time, the browser or the operator or type of terminal from where the visit is made. Under no circumstances is information obtained about the name, surname(s), postal address or other similar data about the user that accessed the website.
What type of cookies are there?
Cookies can be first-party or third-party. First-party cookies are those sent to the user’s computer terminal from a computer or domain managed by the publisher of the website itself and from where the service requested by the user is provided. Third-party cookies are those sent to the user’s computer terminal from a computer or domain that is not managed by the publisher, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies.
In addition, cookies can be session or persistent. The former are a type of cookie designed to collect and store data while the user browses a website. Persistent cookies are a type of cookie where data continues to be stored in the computer terminal, and can be accessed and processed for a time period defined by the cookie owner, which may last from a few minutes to several years.

In the case of technical cookies, that is, those that are essential to browse this website and receive the service offered through it, the lawful basis for their use is your consent, which you give when you decide to use this website and the services offered through it.
The lawful basis for the use of other cookies is the user’s consent, which is requested when this website is accessed and which can be revoked at any time. The withdrawal of such consent will not keep the user from browsing this website and using its services, but any data processing activity carried out previously will not lose its lawfulness due to the fact that consent has been revoked.
With whom will the cookies be shared or who will have access to them?
When third-party cookies exist, as stated above, these third parties may access the cookies and use them in the manner described above.
According to the legislation in force, any person has the right to obtain confirmation about whether or not the personal data concerning them is being processed. Likewise, under the conditions provided for by law, data subjects have the right to access their data, as well as to request the rectification of inaccurate data or, where appropriate, request its erasure when, among other reasons, the data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected. In the case of cookies, these rights may be exercised subject to the limitations arising from the nature of these files.
Under the conditions provided for by the General Data Protection Regulation, data subjects may request the restriction of the processing of their data or its portability, in which case we will only retain them for the exercise or defence of claims.
Under certain circumstances and for reasons related to their particular situation, data subjects may object to the processing of their data. If you have granted consent for a specific purpose, you have the right to revoke it at any time, without this affecting the lawfulness of any processing based on consent done prior to its withdrawal. In these cases, we will stop processing the data or, where appropriate, we will stop doing so for that specific purpose, except for compelling legitimate grounds, or the exercise or defence of possible claims.
In the event of any violation of your rights, particularly when you fail to obtain a satisfactory response in the exercise of your rights, you can file a complaint with the Spanish Data Protection Agency (contact details accessible at www.agpd.es), or another competent supervisory authority.
