Cookies do not harm your terminal.

Depending on their uses, cookies can be:

  • Technical: those which permit or aid User browsing through the web page and the use of the different options or services existing therein, such as identifying the session or remembering passwords.
  • For personalisation: those are the ones that allow the User to access the service with some features of a general nature which are predefined according to a series of criteria in the User's terminal such as language, type of browser used to access the service, etc.

  • Publicity: those that allow the most efficient management possible of publicity spaces of the WEBSITE, based on criteria such as the edited contents or the frequency that the advertisements are shown.
  • For targeted publicity: those that allow the most efficient management of the publicity spaces of the WEBSITE, storing information on User patterns obtained through ongoing observation of his or her browsing habits, which allows the creation of a specific profile in order to show publicity akin to such profile.
