How we use Cookies

Cookies allow us to distinguish you from other users of our website and they are used for many things, such as remembering when you’ve visited a site before, your language preferences, font size and other display preferences. Cookies contain information about the use of your computer, but they do not collect other information (such as your name and address, for example).
The information we collect using cookies also permits us to analyse traffic patterns on our site. This can enable us over time to provide users with a better experience on our site by improving the content and making it easier to use.

Identifying cookies

Below is a list of cookies arranged into a series of categories. However, bear in mind that a cookie could be included in more than one category.

Cookies according to the entity that manages them.

Depending on the entity that manages the server or domain from which the cookies are sent and which processes the data they contain, cookies can be classified into:

  • First-party cookies: These cookies are sent to the user’s device from a server or domain managed by the publisher and which provides the service requested by the user.
  • Third-party cookies: These cookies are sent to the user’s device from a server or domain that is not managed by the publisher but by another entity that processes the data collected through cookies.

Note: If cookies are installed from a server or domain managed by the publisher but the information collected though them is managed by a third-party, they are not classed as first-party cookies.

Types of cookies according to how long they remain activated.

Depending on how long they remain activated on the device, cookies can be divided into:

  • Session cookies: These cookies are designed to gather and store data when the user accesses a website. They are usually used to store data that is only needed to provide the service requested by the user on one occasion (e.g. a list of products purchased).
  • Persistent cookies: These cookies are stored on the device and can be accessed and managed over the period of time defined by the entity in charge of the cookie, which can range from minutes to several years.
