A cookie is a file that is downloaded to your computer when you access certain websites. Cookies allow a website, among other things, to store and retrieve information about the browsing habits of a user or his or her computer and, depending on the information they contain and how they use their equipment, can be used to recognise the user.

Cookies used for any of the following purposes are exempt from complying with the obligations laid down in article 22.2 of Law 34/2002 LSSICE:

Criterion A: Cookies that only permit communication between the user’s equipment and the network.

Criterion B: Cookies that strictly provide a service expressly requested by the user.

In other words, the exempt cookies would be those with the following purposes:

“User log-in” cookies

User authentication or identification cookies (only for the session)

User security cookies

Multimedia player session cookies

Load balancing session cookies

User interface customisation cookies

Plug-in cookies for exchanging social content

In the case of Criterion B, any cookies providing an information society service would have to meet the following two conditions:

  • the cookie is required for providing a specific functionality to the user (or subscriber): if the cookies do not work, the function will not be provided
  • the functionality has been explicitly requested by the user (or subscriber) as part of an information society service

If this website uses cookies that are not exempt from the scope of application of this legislation, a two layer information system will be used.

The first layer will display essential information about the existence of cookies, whether they are first- or third-party, and the purposes of the cookies that are used, as well as means of giving consent.

 

The second layer would provide information about what cookies are and what they are used for, the types of cookies used and their purpose, as well as how to deactivate or delete the listed cookies using functionalities provided by the editor, tools provided by the browser or the terminal, or using any common platforms that may exist for this purpose or, if applicable, the method for withdrawing consent that has already been given. This second layer will also provide information about the identification of people who use cookies, that is whether the information obtained by the cookies is only processed by the publisher and/or also by third parties. It will provide information about those that have been contracted, or cookie services that the publisher has decided to include.

IP ADDRESSES

The website’s servers may automatically detect the IP address and domain name used by the user. An IP address is a number assigned automatically to a computer when it connects to the Internet. All of this information is logged on a duly registered server activity file, which allows the data to be subsequently processed for the sole purpose of obtaining statistical measurements related to the number of page views, the number of visits to web services, the order of visits and the access point, etc.

 

SECURITY

The website uses information security techniques generally accepted in the industry, such as firewalls, access control procedures and encryption mechanisms, all for the purposes of preventing unauthorised access to the data. To achieve this, the user/customer accepts that the provider collects data for the purposes of the corresponding access control authentication.

Any process involving the entering of sensitive personal data (health, religion) will always be transmitted over a secure communications protocol (https://) with an SSL certificate, to ensure that no third parties can gain access to electronically transmitted information.
