This site, like most sites on the Internet, uses its own and third-party cookies to improve the use by the user. Below we publish some basic information about cookies, such as what they are, the types and how to disable them.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small files that some websites can install on your computer, smartphone, tablet or electronic device when you visit them. Their functions can be multiple: storing your browsing preferences, collecting statistical information, facilitating interaction, activating functionalities, etc. Cookies are sometimes used to store basic information about the browsing habits of the user or their equipment, to the point, depending on the case, of being able to recognise it.
Why are they useful?
The usefulness of cookies covers many aspects of browsing. From the user's point of view, they allow web pages to work more quickly and in a way that is adapted to the user's preferences, such as storing the language or currency of the user's country. From a website manager's point of view, they help them to improve the services they offer, thanks to the statistical information they collect through them.
Types of cookies
There are several types of cookies, and each of them can have a specific or multiple functionality. Our site mainly installs the types specified below, although there are other types.
