What is a cookie?
A cookie is a file that websites download to the computers that connect to them. While the purposes of cookies are often only technical, they may also allow, among other things, the storage and retrieval of information about a user's browsing habits or those of their computer and, depending on the information they contain and the way in which the computer is used, they may also be used to recognize the user.
There are cookies that are controlled and managed by the owner of the website (called "own cookies") and others that are managed by third parties (known as "third party cookies"), for example, because they provide a tool or functionality that is built into the website.
Some cookies are canceled once the browsing session involving the website in question is over (session cookies) while others can be stored on the users' computer and accessed for a longer period (persistent cookies).
What type of cookies do we use and why?
We use the following types of cookies on this website:
1. Technical cookies that are essential to the provision of services
We use technical cookies to provide the services requested by our users. These cookies are essential for browsing and using website's various options and services, such as, for example, controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, accessing restricted-access areas, remembering the information that the user provides at each stage of the registration or contracting process, using security elements during browsing, storing content for video or audio dissemination, or sharing content through social networks.
2. Customization cookies
In order to optimize the experience of using our website, we use customization cookies that allow us to configure the website and its services according to users preferences or to the general characteristics of their computers, for example, the browser used and its version, the installed operating system, etc.
These cookies are used, for example, to remember the parameters chosen by users during their visits, to orient the content of the website according to their language or location, or to maintain the accredited status of registered users.
3. Analysis cookies
Analysis cookies are used to measure and analyze the activity of websites and to create user browsing profiles. Typically, the data derived from your browsing activity that may be subject to analysis are the following:
- The domain name of the provider (ISP) and/or IP address that gives them access to the network. For example, a user of provider xxx will only be identified by the xxx.com domain and/or the IP address. This allows us to compile statistics on the countries and servers that visit our website most often.
- The date and time of access to our website. This helps us to determine the hours of peak traffic and make the necessary adjustments to avoid saturation problems during such peak hours.
- The website address from which the link to our website originated. Thanks to this information, we can determine the effectiveness of the different banners and links that point to our server, in order to promote those that offer the best results.
- The number of daily visitors to each section. This allows us to identify the most successful sections and to increase and improve their content, so that users can obtain a more satisfactory result.
