1. What are cookies?
Registered users, i.e. those who registered or have started a session, may benefit from more personalised services in line with their profile, thanks to a combination of the data stored in the cookies and personal data provided when they registered. These users expressly authorise the use of this information for the stated purpose, without prejudice to their right to reject or deactivate cookies.
Likewise, the Website may know about any services requested by users, so that it can facilitate or offer information on the basis of each user’s tastes and preferences
2. What types of cookies are there?
On the basis of their Permanence, Cookies are divided into:
These expire when the user closes the browser.
These expire once the purpose for which they were created has been achieved (for example, to enable services to identify the user) or when they are removed manually.
On the basis of their Owner they are divided into:
These are cookies sent to the user’s device from a system or domain managed by the publisher which provides the service requested by the user.
These are cookies sent to the user’s device from a system or domain that is not managed by the publisher, but rather by another entity which processes any data obtained via the cookies.
Furthermore, depending on their Purpose, Cookies can be classified as follows:
This type of Cookie remembers your preferences for the tools contained in the services, which means that you do not need to configure the service every time you return. By way of example, this type includes:
- Changes made to the volume of video players or sound.
- Video transmission speeds compatible with your browser.
These Cookies are used to check which country you are in when you request a service. This Cookie is completely anonymous and is only used to customise content according to the location.
Registration Cookies are created when users register or later when they start their session, and are used to identify them to the services for the following purposes:
- To save the user’s identity so that when the service, browser or computer is shut down, the user is still identified the next time they enter the same service. This makes browsing easier as the user does not have to identify themselves again. This feature can be removed if the user clicks on “close session”, so that this Cookie is deleted. The next time they enter the service, the user will have to start the session to be identified.
- To check whether the user is authorised to access certain services, for example, to take part in a competition.
Each time a User visits a service, an external provider’s tool stores an analytical Cookie on the user’s computer. This Cookie is only created during the visit and identifies the visitor anonymously in subsequent visits to the Website Services. Their main purposes are:
- To allow anonymous identification of browsing users via the Cookie (it identifies browsers and devices rather than people) and therefore provide an approximate count of the number of visitors and their behaviour over time.
- Anonymous identification of the most visited, and therefore most attractive, content for users.
- To know whether the user is accessing the site for the first time or is visiting again.
Important: Unless the User decides to register for one of the Website services, the Cookie will never be associated with any identifiable personal data. These Cookies are only used for statistical purposes and help to optimise User experience on the site.
Behavioural advertising cookies
This type of Cookie allows information in the adverts shown to every anonymous user to be extended across the Website Services. Among others, the length and frequency of advertising, interaction with advertisements, browsing patterns and/or users’ behaviour are stored so that an advertising profile can be created. This makes it possible to offer advertising suited to users’ interests.
Third-party advertising Cookies
In addition to the advertising managed by the Website in its Services, the Website also offers its advertisers the possibility of delivering adverts via third parties (Adservers). Third parties can therefore store Cookies sent from the users’ browsers via the Website Services, as well as being able to access the data stored in them.
