1. What is a cookie?
Registered users who have signed up or logged in can benefit from more personalized individually-aimed services thanks to the combination of the data stored in cookies and personal data used during the registration. Such users expressly consent to use this information for indicated purposes without prejudice to their right to reject or disable cookies.
The Web can also know about all services requested by users and can therefore provide or offer information corresponding to the personal preferences and likes of each user.
2. What types of cookies are there?
Cookies based on your Permanence can be divided in:
“Session cookies”: the ones that expire at the end of a browser session.
“Persistent cookies”. the ones that expire once the purpose for which they serve has been accomplished (for example, to keep the user identified for the Services) or when they are deleted manually.
In addition, depending on their Purpose, Cookies can be divided into the following groups:
Performance cookies This type of Cookie records your preferences for the tools used in the services and, therefore, does not require reconfiguration of the service every time you visit. This group includes:
– Volume settings of the video or sound players.
– Video streaming speed to make it compatible with your browser.
Geolocation cookies These are used to know in which country the user is based when requesting the service. This Cookie is fully anonymous and is only used to help direct the contents towards your location.
Signup Cookies: the ones that are generated once the user signed up or subsequently logged in. They are used to identify them in the service for the following purposes:
– Keep the user identified so that when the session is closed on the browser or computer, and the user wants to access it at another moment or day, he/she will remain identified and will not have to sign in again, which will thus make their browsing experience easier. This function can be deactivated when the user presses “log off”. This way, this Cookie shall be deleted, and the next time the user enters the service, they will have to start the session and log in to be identified.
– Make sure that the user is authorized to access certain services, for example, to take part in a contest.
Analytics Cookies: Every time the user accesses the service, a tool of an external provider (Google Analytics, Comscore and alike that could be added to this list in the event the ones that are currently used change) generates an analytics cookie on the user computer. This Cookie, which is only generated during the visit, shall cooperate with Web Services to anonymously identify the visitor. The main goals of such cookies are as follows:
– To make possible the anonymous identification of browsing users through a “Cookie” (which identifies browsers and devices, not people) and, therefore, the approximate count of visitors and their trend in time.
– Anonymously identify which has been the most visited content and, therefore, more attractive to users.
– Know if the user accessing is a new or returning visitor.
– Important: Unless the user decides to sign up in the web service, the “Cookie” shall never be associated with a personal piece of data that could identify them. Such Cookies shall be exclusively used for statistical purposes for further improvement of user experience on the site.
Behavioral Advertising CookiesThis type of Cookie enables broadening of the information of the ads shown to each anonymous user while using Web Services. Among other pieces of information stored, they track the duration or frequency of ad visualization, interactions with them or browsing patterns and/or behavior of the user that might help define the advertising interest profile. Using such cookies makes it possible to offer the user advertisements relevant to their interests.
Third-party advertising cookies Apart from the advertisement managed by the Web of your Services, the Web offers its advertisers the possibility to serve ads through third parties (“Ad Servers”). This way, such third parties can store Cookies sent from the web Services coming from the users’ browsers, as well as access the data they have.
