What are cookies?
A cookie is a small file installed on your computer, mobile phone or tablet through a browser. It contains numbers and letters that identify your browser and send information back and forth between the browser and the websites visited, which can only be read and understood by the website that created it. They cannot contain viruses or be executed, as they are not active files.
They can be used for different purposes such as, for instance, recognising you as a user, obtaining information about your browsing habits or customising the way the content is displayed.
The use of these technologies is described below.

- Preferences or customisation: allow you to choose preferred language, the number of results per search, the service aspect or content depending on which browser you use or if it’s a mobile device or tablet, all to create a user profile and remember you on future visits, but only if you choose these characteristics.
- Statistics, analytics or measurement: enables creation of user profiles based on your preferences or browsing habits. This allows us to know which parts of the website our users are most interested in, which geographical areas they’re in, age ranges, gender, browser used, length of visit, etc. and with all this aggregated information presented statistically, we can improve our content to offer you better services.
- Marketing: based on the user profiles and their browsing habits, they extract aggregate information to offer customised advertising based on your preferences or interests so that, when you visit our website, the advertising spaces will show you information that we think may interest you related to your preferences.
- They also serve to help us manage our online ad campaigns and focus our resources on a target sector that we think may be more interested in our products or services.

- Session: the cookies that remain active while you browse in each session and then disappear.
