Cookies are files sent to a browser through a web server to record the activities of the user on a specific website. The first purpose of Cookies is to provide the user with faster access to the selected services. In addition, Cookies personalize the services offered by the PORTAL, facilitating and offering each user information that is of interest or that may be of interest, in attention to the use made of the services.
Likewise, the PORTAL will be able to recognize all the services requested by the users, so that they can provide or offer information appropriate to the preferences of each user.
Typology, purpose and operation of Cookies
Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be “Session Cookies” or “Permanent Cookies”. The first ones expire when the user closes the browser. The second ones expire depending on when the purpose for which they serve is fulfilled (for example, so that the user remains identified in the services) or when they are manually deleted.
Depending on their owner, they can be divided into:
- Own cookies: Are those that are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the editor itself and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
- Third-party Cookies: Are those that are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the publisher but by another entity that treats the data obtained through Cookies.
Additionally, depending on its purpose, Cookies can be classified as follows:
Performance Cookies: This type of Cookie remembers your preferences for the tools found in the services, so you do not have to reconfigure the service each time you visit the PORTAL. As an example, this typology includes:
· Volume settings of video or sound players.
· The video transmission speeds that are compatible with your browser.
Geolocation cookies: These cookies are used to find out which country you are in when a service is requested. This Cookie is completely anonymous and is only used to help guide the content according to your location.
Registration Cookies: Registration cookies are generated once the user has registered or subsequently opened their session, and they are used to identify you in the services with the following objectives:
Keep the user identified so that, if a service, the browser or the computer closes and another time or another day enters the service again, it will remain identified, facilitating its navigation without having to re-identify itself. This functionality can be suppressed if the user presses the “close session” functionality, so that this Cookie is deleted and the next time it enters the service the user will have to log in to be identified.
Analytical Cookies: Each time a user visits a service, a tool from an external provider (Google Analytics, Comscore and similar that may be added to this list in case they vary in relation to the current ones) generates an analytic cookie in the computer of the user. This Cookie that is only generated during the visit, will serve in future visits to the PORTAL services to identify the visitor anonymously. The main objectives that are pursued are:
Allow the anonymous identification of navigating users through the Cookie (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate count of the number of visitors and their trend over time.
Identify anonymously the most visited content and therefore more attractive to users.
Know if the user who is accessing is new or repeats visit.
Important: Unless the user decides to register in a PORTAL service, the “Cookie” will never be associated with any personal data that can identify them. These Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that help optimize the experience of the users on the PORTAL.

Behavioral Advertising Cookies: This type of Cookies allows you to expand the information of the ads shown to each anonymous user in the Services of the PORTAL. Among others, the duration or frequency of display of advertising positions is stored, the interaction with them, or the browsing patterns and / or user behaviour as they help to shape a profile of advertising interest. In this way, they allow to offer advertising related to the interests of the user.
Third-party advertising Cookies: In addition to the advertising managed by the PORTAL in its services, the PORTAL offers its advertisers the option to serve advertisements through third parties (“AdServers”). In this way, these third parties can store Cookies sent from the PORTAL services from the browsers of the users, as well as access the data stored therein.
The companies that generate these Cookies have their own privacy policies. Currently, the PORTAL uses the platform of Real Media and Weborama to manage these services:

Google Analytics Cookies: they serve to analyse the user’s browsing experience, and allow us to improve our PORTAL to adapt it to the users’ needs. Normally, they remain in the user’s browser for a while, until the browser’s cookies are deleted, or the time defined for their elimination passes. They are called _ga, _ga *, and _gid.
How to disable Cookies in the main browsers
It is usually possible to stop accepting browser cookies or stop accepting cookies from a particular service.
