What are cookies?
In English, the term “cookie” refers to a biscuit, but in the context of web browsing, a “cookie” is something completely different. When you access our Website, a small amount of text called a “cookie” is stored in your device’s browser. This text contains various information about your browsing, habits, preferences, content personalizations, etc.
There are other similar technologies that function in the same way and are also used to collect data about your browsing activity. We will refer to all of these technologies as “cookies” collectively.
The specific uses we make of these technologies are described in this document.
What are cookies used for on this website?
Cookies are an essential part of how this website functions. The main purpose of our cookies is to enhance your browsing experience. For example, they remember your preferences (language, country, etc.) during navigation and on future visits. The information collected through cookies also allows us to improve the website, tailor it to your interests as a user, and accelerate searches you perform, among other things.
Why are cookies NOT used on this website?
The cookies we use do not store sensitive personally identifiable information such as your name, address, password, etc.
Who uses the information stored in the cookies?
The information stored in the cookies of our website is used exclusively by us, except for those identified later as “third-party cookies,” which are used and managed by external entities that provide services to enhance the user experience. For example, statistics collected on the number of visits, popular content, etc.
If you have accepted them, we will not ask again unless you delete the cookies on your device as indicated in the next section. If you want to revoke your consent, you will need to delete the cookies and reconfigure them.

What types of cookies are used on this website?
Each website uses its own cookies. On our website, we use the following cookies:
ACCORDING TO THE ENTITY MANAGING IT
These are cookies sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the website owner and from which the requested service is provided.
These are cookies sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the website owner, but by another entity that processes data obtained through cookies.
If cookies are served from a computer or domain managed by the website owner, but the information collected through them is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered first-party cookies if the third party uses them for its own purposes (e.g., improving the services it provides or providing advertising services on behalf of other entities).
ACCORDING TO THEIR PURPOSE
These are necessary for the navigation and proper functioning of our website, such as controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, accessing restricted access areas, making registration or participation requests in an event, counting visits for the billing of licenses of the software used by the website service, using security elements during navigation, storing content for the dissemination of videos or sound, enabling dynamic content (e.g., loading animation of text or image).
They allow quantifying the number of users and performing the measurement and statistical analysis of how users use the website.
Preferences or customization cookies:
These allow remembering information so that the user can access the service with certain characteristics that differentiate their experience from other users, such as language, the number of results to display when the user performs a search, the appearance or content of the service based on the type of browser through which the user accesses the service or the region from which they access the service, etc.
ACCORDING TO THE LENGTH OF TIME THEY REMAIN ACTIVE
These are designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a website.
They are usually used to store information that is only relevant to provide the requested service to the user on a single occasion (e.g., a list of purchased products) and disappear when the session ends.
These are cookies in which data remains stored on the device and can be accessed and processed during a period defined by the cookie’s owner, ranging from a few minutes to several years. In this regard, it should be specifically assessed whether the use of persistent cookies is necessary, as privacy risks could be reduced by using session cookies. In any case, when persistent cookies are installed, it is recommended to minimize their duration to the minimum necessary based on their purpose. In this regard, Opinion 4/2012 of the WP29 indicated that for a cookie to be exempt from the requirement of informed consent, its expiration date must be related to its purpose. Therefore, session cookies are much more likely to be considered exempt than persistent cookies.
