Cookies are small text files that are stored on the Data Subject’s device (computer, mobile phone/smartphone and tablet) through their browser when they visit websites. These cookies help websites recognise the device the next time the Data Subject visits them and in some cases are essential for their operation.
Cookies are used to manage the operation of websites and increase their efficiency, as well as to provide information to the entities responsible for the websites and/or to manage Data Subjects’ sessions. They also allow websites to recognise Data Subjects when they visit them and guide their browsing activity according to their interests and preferences, thus improving their browsing experience.
Our cookies have different purposes:
Strictly necessary cookies - Some cookies are essential to access specific areas of our websites, allowing you to browse and use their features, such as access to private areas through the Data Subject's log in. Without these cookies, applications that require it may not work.
Functionality cookies - Functionality cookies allow the websites to remember the Data Subject's browsing preferences, so that it is not necessary to reconfigure the websites whenever the Data Subject visits them.
Performance cookies - We use these cookies to analyse how Data Subjects use websites and monitor their performance. This allows us to provide a high quality experience by customising our offer and quickly identifying and correcting any issues that arise. For example, we use performance cookies to find out which pages are most popular, which method of linking pages is most effective, or to determine why some pages are receiving error messages. Based on the use of the websites, we may also use these cookies to highlight items or services of the websites that we think may be of interest to the Data Subject. These cookies are used for statistical and analysis purposes only and will never collect information in a way that could identify the Data Subject personally.
Targeting Cookies - These cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
Persistent cookies – These are stored on the browser of the Data Subject’s device and are used every time the Data Subject visits the websites. They are normally used to guide the browsing activity according to the Data Subject’s interests, allowing us to provide a more customised service.
Session cookies - These are temporary and stay on the browser until it is closed. The information obtained allows us to identify problems and provide a better browsing experience.
Note that by disabling cookies, parts of our websites may not function properly.
