What is a cookie?

Our website uses cookies to facilitate user access to our services. Cookies are small text files that a web browser places in a user’s hard drive to streamline and optimise the process of using a website. Cookies store information on user preferences for a particular website. Cookies do not store a user’s personal information.
A cookie is a harmless text file stored by your web browser when visiting almost any websites. Cookies are useful for allowing a website to remember your visit for when you visit the same website again. Many people are unaware of the fact that cookies have been in use for twenty years, since the first browsers appeared for the World Wide Web.
Users can adjust their browser settings to be notified of the use of cookies, allowing them to accept or reject them. For further information, consult your browser’s help guide. Our cookies cannot be used to run computer programs or spread viruses to users’ computer equipment.

What information is stored in a cookie?

Cookies do not tend to store sensitive information about you, such as credit card and bank account details, photographs, ID card numbers or personal information. The information they store is of a technical nature, such as personal preferences and the customisation of contents, among others.
The web server does not associate them to you as a person but to your web browser. In fact, if you typically browse with Internet Explorer and decide to try browsing the same website with Firefox or Chrome, you will see that the website does not realize that you are the same person because it is actually making the association with the browser, not the person.

What kind of cookies are there?

Technical cookies: these are more basic cookies that allow, among other things, a distinction to be made between a human or automatic application navigating the website, when it is being navigated by an anonymous user or a registered user, and to perform basic functions for the operation of any dynamic website.
Analytics cookies: these cookies gather information on the type of navigation that is being performed, the most used sections, products consulted, usage times, language, etc.
Advertising cookies: these show advertisements depending on what you are browsing, your country of origin, language, etc.

What are own cookies and third-party cookies?

Own cookies are generated by the actual website you are visiting, and third-party cookies are generated by external services or providers, such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, etc.

What happens if I disable cookies?

To give you an idea of what disabling cookies can do, we provide a few examples:

  • You will be unable to share contents from the website you are visiting on Facebook, Twitter or other social media site.
  • The website will be unable to adapt its contents to your personal preferences, which typically happens with online retailers.
  • You will be unable to access the personal section of that website, such as My Account, My Profile or My Orders.
  • Online retailers: It will be impossible to make online purchases; you will need to phone them or visit their physical stores if they have one.
  • It will not be possible to customise your geographic preferences, such as time zone, currency or language.
  • The website will not be able to compile analytical information on visitors or web traffic, which will hinder it from being competitive.
  • You will not be able to use its blog, upload photos, post comments or rate contents.
  • The website will also not know whether you are human or an automatic application, such as a spambot.
  • It will not be able to show targeted advertisements, which will reduce the advertising revenues of the website.
  • All social media platforms use cookies, so you will not be able to use social media if you disable their cookies.
