What are cookies?
Cookies are small files that are recorded in the browser used by each visitor to the CONTROLLER’s website so that the server can remember the visit of that user later when the content is accessed again. This information does not reveal your identity, or any personal data, or access the content stored on your PC, although it does allow the CONTROLLER’s system to identify you as a specific user who has previously visited the website, viewed certain pages, etc. It also allows you to save your personal preferences and technical information such as visits made or the specific pages you visit.
What type of cookies are there and how are they used?
- Technical cookies
Technical cookies are those that are essential and strictly necessary for the correct functioning of a Website portal and the use of the different options and services it offers. For example, those that serve to maintain the session, manage response time, performance or validation of options, use security elements, share content with social networks, etc.
- Customisation cookies
These cookies enable the user to specify or personalise certain characteristics in the general options of the website page; for example, define the language, regional configuration or browser type.
- Analytical cookies

- Advertising cookies
Advertising cookies enable advertising spaces to be managed based on specific criteria. For example, the frequency of access, the edited content, etc. Through advertising management, advertising cookies enable behavioural information to be stored by observing habits, studying accesses and forming a profile of user preferences, in order to offer advertising related to the interests of their profile.
