WHAT IS A COOKIE AND WHAT IT IS USED FOR?
A “Cookie” is a small file stored on the user’s computer, tablet, smartphone or any other device with browsing information. All our users’ cookies as a whole help us to improve the quality of our website, enabling us to check which pages are useful, which are not and which could be improved. Cookies are essential for the functioning of the internet, bringing countless advantages to the provision of interactive services, making our website easier to browse and use. Under no circumstances can cookies damage your equipment. On the contrary, active cookies help us to identify and resolve errors.
WHAT TYPES OF COOKIE DO WE USE? IT DEPENDS ON THE ENTITY MANAGING THEM
a) Own cookies are those sent to your equipment from our own equipment or domains and from which we provide the service that you ask of us.
b) Third-party cookies are those sent to your equipment from equipment or domains not managed by us, but by another entity with which we collaborate. For example, those used by social networks, or by external content such as Google Maps.
IT DEPENDS ON HOW LONG THEY REMAIN ACTIVE
a) Session cookies are temporary cookies that remain in your browser's cookie archive until you leave the website, and are therefore not recorded on your computer's hard drive. The information obtained through these cookies is used to analyse web traffic patterns. Over time, they give us better feedback for improving content and making the website easier to use.
b) Persistent cookies are stored on the hard drive and our website reads them every time you make a new visit. A permanent website has a specific expiry date. The cookie will cease to function after that date.
IT DEPENDS ON THEIR PURPOSE

b) Customization cookies are those that enable you to access the service with certain predefined characteristics on the basis of a set of criteria, for example language, the type of browser through which the service is accessed, the regional configuration from which the service is accessed, etc.
c) Analysis cookies are those that enable us to quantify the number of users and thus carry out measurement and statistical analysis of users’ usage of the services provided. For this purpose, your browsing on our website is analysed with the aim of improving our offer of products and services. In this case, we use Google Analytics, which analyses and measures users’ browsing. The applications that we use to obtain browsing information and to measure and analyse users are: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/cookie-usage
