what is a Cookie?
It’s not a biscuit, exactly, and if it were, it would be difficult to digest. But… let’s get serious.
A Cookie is a small text file that websites store in the browser of the user who visits them to make the user experience more efficient.
Although the general term “Cookie” is used in this policy, as it is the main method of storing information used by this website, the browser’s “Local Storage” space is also used for the same purposes as Cookies. In this sense, all the information included in this section is equally applicable to this “Local Storage”.
what are Cookies used for on this website?
The main purpose of my cookies is to enrich your browsing experience (and in the process improve the performance of my website). I use them, for example, to remember your choices such as language and country, both during your current visit and for future occasions.
On my website, I use both first-party and third-party cookies. While some cookies are essential for the site to function properly, such as the search engine, others help to personalise content, advertise, provide social media features and analyse how the site is used. In addition, I share data about how you browse my website with social media, advertising and web analytics partners. They may mix this information with other information you have given them or that they have collected through your use of their services.
The information I get from cookies helps me to improve the site. It allows me to estimate usage patterns, tailor my website to your interests based on your browsing history here, streamline your searches, among other benefits.
who uses the information stored in cookies?
The information I store in cookies on my website is used only by me. However, there are exceptions, especially with what I call “third party cookies”. These are managed by external entities that help me provide certain services, seeking to improve both those services and your experience when browsing my site.
what specific cookies does this website use and for what purposes?
On my site, I use external services to collect information for statistical purposes and website usage. Specifically, I use my own and third-party cookies, both session and persistent, for analysis, personalisation, marketing and technical tasks.
Cookies are categorised according to their duration in the browser:
Session cookies: These are temporary and are only kept while your browser is open. Once you close it, they are deleted. They help manage the interactions of users who are accessing the site at the same time.
Persistent cookies: These stay on your device even after you close your browser. They are useful for remembering preferences or information that simplifies your future visits to my site, such as logging in without having to log in.
Depending on their origin, cookies can be:
First-party cookies: These are cookies that my website creates while you visit it.
Third-party cookies: Although you browse my site, these cookies are created by external services that are integrated into it.
Below, I provide a table with the cookies, tags and other similar devices that I use on my site, detailing their purpose, duration and whether they are managed directly by me or by third parties.
