We have structured this policy in the following drop-downs to facilitate access to the points of your interest, however, we recommend that you read it in its entirety.
Cookies are small text files that are stored in your browser when you visit our website. These files contain information about your browsing and interaction with our website, with the purpose of making your user experience more efficient and being able to show you advertising based on your browsing habits. Some cookies are essential for the proper functioning of our website, such as technical or user interface personalization cookies, and others, such as analysis cookies or behavioral advertising (or marketing) cookies, require that we inform you and that you give us your consent before we can use them.
LocalStorage and SessionStorage are two, out of the different data storage spaces that can be located in your device’s browser and, like cookies, can be first-parti (when created by our own website) or third-party (when created by our service providers or our partners). The difference between the two spaces is that LocalStorage stores information indefinitely or until you decide to clear the browser data, while SessionStorage stores information for as long as the tab where our website is being used remains open and, once closed, the information is deleted. The difference with cookies is that these two spaces allow storing more information than cookies without impacting the performance of our website. You can find more information here.
Finally, we inform you that although the purpose of the third-party cookies we use, for which we are responsible, is that indicated in the tables in the following sections, these third parties may dedicate the data collected by their cookies to other purposes of which they are solely responsible for. In the case of third-party cookies, our responsibility for the purposes of the third parties is limited to the download of the cookies into your device (what we do for the stated purpose). You can find out more information about the purposes of these third parties, and whether or not they make transfers to third countries in their corresponding privacy policies (see the links in the tables below).
In general, the level of risk posed by cookies depends on the type of cookies, and whether they are first-party or third-party. Most cookies are not dangerous. Specifically:
Technical and preference cookies have more benefits than risks
The article 29 working party (former WP29 and current European Data Protection Board) in its Opinion 4/2012, “on the exemption from the consent requirement of cookies“, considers that they do not pose a risk for you and exempt from the obligation to obtain consent prior to their use to all cookies that:
- are necessary for communications to be transmitted through a network between the user and the servers that host the website, and to all those that
- are necessary to provide a specific functionality explicitly requested by the user.
WP29 even defined the purposes that it explicitly considers to have more benefits than risks for you.
Purposes of cookies explicitly excluded from informed consent
With regard to its purpose, WP29 explicitly excludes the following cookies from the obligation to obtain the informed consent of the visitor:
- Cookies called “user input”, which are usually used to track the user’s actions when he fills in the online forms of an http(s) session, or to remember the shopping basket that he ‘user has selected in an e-commerce,
- Session cookies that are used for user authentication or identification, which store a kind of token (witness that the user is who he claims to be and has already been authenticated) to prevent this user from having to give his/her username or password on each page he/she request and has restricted access control,
- User security cookies, introduced specifically to strengthen the security of the service explicitly requested by the user. For example, to detect erroneous and repeated attempts to connect to a website, or abuse,
- Media player session cookies,
- Session cookies to balance the load on information systems,
- User interface personalization cookies, such as to remember your preferred language, and
- Certain plug-in cookies to exchange social content.
Statistical cookies ALSO do not pose an appreciable risk
Regarding the processing of data collected through analysis cookies, the aforementioned opinion of the current European Data Protection Board stated that, although controllers are not exempt from the duty to obtain consent for their use, it is unlikely they represent a risk to users’ privacy as long as they are first-party cookies that process aggregated data with a strictly statistical purpose, that provide information on their uses and include the possibility for data subjects to express their negative about its use.
First-party cookies also usually do not pose an appreciable risk for you
Frist-party cookies are generated by our website, while third-party cookies are generated by services or providers independent of us, and they are these independent providers who define the purposes and means of the processing they carry out.
Our only responsibility regarding third-party cookies is the necessary collaboration of our website in the placement of these cookies on your device, placement to which we will normally be obliged as it is necessary to be able to use the services provided to us by said third-parties (for example, to check that you are not a robot of these that are so abundant on the Internet, and thus avoid that the requests or comments that could be sent to us through the forms on our website harm our attention over the authentic ones).
Technical cookies are those that allow the user to navigate through a website, platform or application as well as the use of the different options or services that exist therein, including the management and operation of the website and the enabling of its functions and services (for example, identifying your session, accessing parts of the web that have restricted access, remembering the elements that make up your purchase order, carrying out the purchase process of your order, managing your payment, etc.). The website, platform or app cannot function properly without these cookies, as they are considered necessary.

Preference or personalization cookies allow our website to remember information that changes the way our pages behave or look in order to differentiate your experience from that of other users. As an example, it usually remembers the language in which you want to view our website. If you are the one who voluntarily chooses these features, for example, by marking the flag or letters that identify the language, it is considered a service expressly requested by you as long as the cookies obey exclusively for the purpose of personalization, so in this case it would not be necessary to ask you for an explicit consent.
