Cookies are small text archives that install themselves in IT devices which are used to access our website. Cookies record, among other purposes, a user's preferences and browsing habits. They are associated with the user and their team, but they do not provide directly identifying data. Some cookies, such as those enabling statistics compilations or advertising announcements, require the consent of our site’s users. Other cookies, however, those that are technical or necessary for providing a service requested by users, are indispensable for the site's functioning. Cookies can be classed according to their validity, manager or purpose.

  • Third party: sent to users by a third party, separate from the site's owner.

According to purpose

  • Necessary: indispensable for enabling your connection. There is no option for disabling them, as they are necessary for the functioning of the website.
  • Technical: enable the control of data traffic and communication, the identification of the session and access to restricted-access pages, among other things.
  • Preferences: enable your options (for example language or region you are accessing from) to be remember, to provide you with advanced services.

The cookies we use

We want this site to offer good service and to be easy to use. To this end we use cookies from Google Analytics and DNN Software. This allows us to:

  • Statistically analyse the information which our website users access. The collected data can include the user's browsing activity when visiting us, the route they use around our website, information from their internet service provider, the number of times they visit the site and their patterns of use (pages visited, forms filled in and similar information).
  • Identify users who visit us at the invitation of an associated website or of a link sponsored.
