Similar to other commercial websites, our Website uses a technology called “cookies” and web server logs to collect information about how our Website is used.
Our website uses its own cookies and third-party ‘cookies’ in order to offer a better service. Cookies are small data files that are sent and stored on the device from which our website is accessed (mobile phone, personal computer, tablet or connected TV) making it easier to use.
Cookies help us to improve the quality of our service by allowing us to compare, remember, control and understand how users navigate through the web, identifying what users find useful and what is not, thus improving the navigation process.
The cookies used by our website do not harm your computer. They are only useful to improve the services offered. Some of them are strictly necessary in order for the website to function properly (technical and personalisation cookies) and other cookies serve to improve performance and user experience (analysis, advertising, and behavioural advertising cookies).
The user has the option to allow, block, or remove installed ‘cookies’ on your computer by setting your browser options installed on your computer. When cookies are disabled, some available services may no longer be operational.
The process to disable cookies is different in each browser, but it can usually be carried out through the menu.
This website uses both session, temporary and permanent ‘cookies’. Session cookies store data while the user accesses the web and expire when the browser is closed; while permanent cookies store data in the terminal to be accessed and used in more than one session. They usually expire after a period of time which can range from two months to two years.
