Article 22.2 of Law 34/2002, of 11 July, on information society services and electronic commerce (LSSI) establishes that data storage and retrieval devices may be used on recipients' terminal equipment, provided that they have given their consent after having been provided with clear and complete information on their use, in particular, on the purposes of data processing, in accordance with the provisions of current legislation on personal data protection. In this regard, cookies may be placed on your computer.
Where consent is mandatory, the layered information mechanism has been chosen.

In general, these technologies can be used for very different purposes, such as, for example, remembering you as a user, obtaining information about browsing habits, personalising the way in which content is displayed or simply enabling the browsing options chosen by the user. You can delete cookies by selecting the option that your browser has for this purpose. You can delete all cookies at any time by using the option provided for this purpose in your browser.

2. Conservation period:
a) First party cookies: during the session.

Transferees: are not foreseen.
Legal base: consent.
3. Cookie guide:
Cookies exempted from information and consent: these would be those that have the following purposes:
- Cookies of «user input»
- Cookies of user authentication or identification (session only)
- Cookies of user safety
- Cookies of media player session
- Cookies of load balancing session
- Cookies of customisation of the user interface
- Cookies of plug-in to exchange social content, when the user has chosen to keep the session open.
Classification of cookies subject to information and consent, according to a report by the Spanish Data Protection Agency:
3.1. Types of cookies according to the entity that manages them:
- First-party cookies: These cookies 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: These are those that are sent to the user's terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the editor, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies.
In the event that the cookies are installed from a computer or domain managed by the editor itself, but the information collected through them is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered as own cookies if the third party uses them for its own purposes.
Please note that if you accept third-party cookies, you will have to delete them from your browser options or from the system offered by the third party itself.
3.2. Types of cookies according to the length of time they remain activated on the user's terminal:
- Session cookies: These are a type of cookie designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a web page, to store information that is only of interest for the provision of the service requested by the user on a single occasion and disappear at the end of the session.
- Persistent cookies: These are a type of cookie in which the data remains stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the party responsible for the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years. For a cookie to be exempt from the duty of informed consent, its expiry must be related to its purpose.
3.3. Types of cookies according to their purpose:
- Technical cookies: These are those that allow the user to navigate through a website, platform or application and the use of the different options or services that exist in it such as, for example, controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, accessing parts of restricted access, remembering the elements that make up an order, carrying out the purchase process of an order, make an application for registration or participation in an event, use security elements during browsing, store content for the broadcasting of videos or sound, share content through social networks or allow the management of advertising spaces that the editor has included on the website (without collecting user information for other purposes). These cookies are exempt from consent when they allow the service requested by the user to be provided. However, if these cookies are also used for purposes that are not exempt (for example, for behavioural advertising purposes), they will be subject to the obligation of information and consent.
- Preference or personalisation cookies: These cookies allow information to be remembered so that the user can access the service with certain predefined general characteristics based on a series of criteria in the user's terminal, such as the language, the type of browser used to access the service, the regional configuration from where the service is accessed, etc. If it is the user who chooses these characteristics (for example, if they select the language of a website by clicking on the icon of the flag of the corresponding country), the cookies will be exempt from consent as they are considered a service expressly requested by the user, provided that the cookies are exclusively for the purpose selected.
- Analysis or measurement cookies: These cookies allow the party responsible for them to monitor and analyse the behaviour of the users of the websites to which they are linked. The information collected through this type of cookies is used to measure the activity of the websites, application or platform and for the elaboration of browsing profiles of the users of these sites, applications and platforms, in order to introduce improvements based on the analysis of the usage data of the users of the service. They are not exempt from the duty to obtain informed consent for their use, and, despite the low likelihood of them posing a risk to users' privacy as long as they are first-party cookies, it must be possible for users to object to their processing or to express their refusal.
- Advertising or behavioural cookies: These cookies allow the most effective possible management of the advertising spaces that, where appropriate, the publisher has included on a website, application or platform from which the requested service is provided, based on criteria such as the edited content or the frequency at which the advertisements are shown. They store information on the behaviour of users obtained through the continuous observation of their browsing habits, allowing a specific profile of the user observed to display advertising based on that profile.
