What are they and what do we use them for?

This website, like most websites on the Internet, uses cookies to enhance the user experience. Below, you will find information on what cookies are, what type of cookies this portal uses, how you can disable cookies in your browser and how to specifically disable the installation of third-party cookies.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small files that some platforms, such as websites, can install on your computer, smartphone, tablet or connected TV. Their functions can be very varied: store your browsing preferences, collect statistical information, enable certain technical functionalities, and so on. Sometimes, cookies are used to store basic information about the user's browsing habits or equipment, to the point, depending on the case, of being able to recognize it.

Why are they important?

Cookies are useful for several reasons. From a technical point of view, they allow websites to work more quickly and adapted to your preferences, such as storing your language or your country's currency. They also help website operators to improve the services they offer, thanks to the statistical information they collect through them.

Types, Purpose and Functioning of Cookies

Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into session or permanent cookies. The former expire when the user closes the browser. The latter expire when the purpose for which they are used is fulfilled (for example, to keep the user identified on the pages of or when they are manually deleted.

Additionally, depending on their purpose, cookies can be classified as follows:

Performance Cookies: This type of cookie remembers your preferences for the tools found on the pages, so you do not have to reconfigure each time you visit. As an example, in this typology are included:

  • Volume settings of video or sound players.
  • The video bitrates supported by your browser.

Geolocation Cookies: These cookies are used to find out what country you are in when browsing the website. This cookie is completely anonymous, and is only used to help target content to your location.

Registration Cookies: Registration cookies are generated once the user has registered or subsequently started the session, and are used to identify the user on the pages for the following purposes:

  • Keep the user identified so that if you close a page, the browser or the computer and at another time or another day re-enter this page, you will continue to be identified, thus facilitating your navigation without having to re-identify yourself. This functionality can be deleted if the user clicks on the "log out" functionality, so this cookie is deleted and the next time the user enters the page the user will have to log in to be identified.
  • Check whether the user is authorized to access certain pages, for example, to participate in a contest.
  • Additionally, some pages may use connectors with social networks such as Facebook, Instagram, Youtube or Twitter. When the user registers on a page with credentials from a social network, he/she authorizes the social network to store a persistent cookie that remembers his/her identity and grants access to the pages until it expires. The user can delete this cookie and revoke access to pages through social networks by updating your preferences on the specific social network.

Analytical Cookies: Each time a user visits a page, a tool of an external provider (in our case Google Analytics) generates an analytical cookie on the user's computer. This cookie, which is only generated during the visit, will be used in future visits to the pages of to anonymously identify the visitor. The main objectives pursued are:

  • Allow anonymous identification of browsing users through the "cookie" (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate counting of the number of visitors and their trend over time.
  • Anonymously identify the most visited content and therefore the most attractive to users.
  • To know if the user accessing the site is new or a repeat visitor.

Important: Unless the user decides to register on the website, the "cookie" will never be associated with any personal data that can identify the user. These cookies will only be used for statistical purposes to help optimize the user experience on the site.
