Cookies Policy

In compliance with article 22.2 of the Information Society Services and E-Commerce Act 34/2002, users of our website are hereby informed of our Cookies Policy.

What is a cookie?

Cookies are files that contain small amounts of information that is downloaded onto the device the User uses when he/she visits our website. Their main aim is to recognise the User (via identifiers that do not enable identification of a physical person) every time he/she accesses the website and they also allow us to improve the quality and usability of our websites. Cookies are essential in the functioning of the Internet. They cannot harm the User’s device/equipment and, if they are activated in the User’s browser settings, they help to identify and resolve possible functional errors with our website.

Types of cookies

There are different types of cookies. They all work in the same way but have small differences:

  • Session cookies: Session cookies only last for the duration of the User’s visit and are deleted when the User closes his/her browser. Their main aim is to identify the type of device, and support website security or its basic functions. They do not contain personal information that allows an individual to be identified.


  • Persistent or permanent cookies: These are stored on the device’s hard drive and the website reads them every time the User makes a new visit to the website. They have a set expiry date, after which they will cease to function. They allow for the identification of user actions and preferences; analysis of user visits, helping us understand how users reach our website; and they help us improve the services offered on our website.


  • Functionality cookies: These allow decisions made by the User to be remembered, such as his/her username or identifier. The information saved by these cookies is anonymous (meaning it does not contain name, address or other personal data).


  • Third-party cookies: Third-party cookies are those installed by a website that is not the site the User is visiting; for example, those used by social networks (such as Facebook) or external content complements (such as Google Maps).


  • Analysis cookies: The aim of these cookies is periodic maintenance and to guarantee the User enjoys optimal functioning and service. They gather details about the User’s activity.
