We thank you for deciding to visit us. We want your experience on the site to be the best possible, which is why we have written this Cookies Policy as transparently as possible.
What is a Cookie?
Cookies are files that contain small amounts of information that are downloaded onto the user’s device when you visit a website. Their main purpose is to recognise the user every time they access the website, and they also allow us to improve the quality and usability of our website.
Cookies are essential to the functioning of the Internet; they cannot damage the user’s equipment/device, and if they are activated in your browser settings, they help us identify and resolve possible malfunctions of the website.
Types of Cookies
There are different types of cookies.
All of them work the same way, but there are slight differences:
1. Session Cookies. Session cookies are only valid during your visit and are deleted when you close the browser. Their main purpose is to identify the type of device, and support the website’s security or its basic functionality. They do not contain personal information that allows us to identify a person.
2. Persistent or Permanent Cookies: These are stored on the device’s hard drive and our website reads them every time you visit the website again; they have an expiry date or determined expiration, after which the cookie will no longer function. They allow us to identify your actions and preferences, analyse visits, and help us understand how users get to our page and improve our services.
3. Functionality Cookies: They allow the website to remember decisions made by the user, like their log-in or identifier, or their search preferences. The information recognised by these cookies is anonymous (i.e., it does not contain your name, address or other data).
4. Third-Party Cookies. Third-party cookies are cookies installed by a website other than the one you are visiting, such as those used by social networks (like Facebook) or external content supplements (like Google Maps). Additionally, some advertising companies use these types of files to track your visit to each website where they advertise.
5. Analytical Cookies: These are cookies used for regular maintenance and to guarantee the best functionality and service to users, gathering data on user activity.
a. Own Cookies
In order to recognise you and provide you better service, our site uses own cookies (small test files stored by your browser). The advantages of accepting cookies translate into time savings. They can also be used to recognise you between successive visits and thus adapt the content you are shown, to obtain information about the time and date of your last visit, to measure some traffic parameters within the site, and to estimate the number of visits made, so that we can focus and adjust our services and promotions more effectively.
No cookie allows for you to be contacted using your telephone number, your email address or any other means of contact. No cookie can extract information from your hard drive or steal personal information.
The site uses the Google Analytics service, provided by Google, Inc., whose main offices are at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View (California), CA 94043, United States (‘Google’).
This website may use tracking tags on certain pages for the measuring and optimisation of results marketing campaigns, never storing users’ personal information.
However, if you do so you may not be able to use the full functionality of this site.
By using this site you consent to your information being processed by Google in the manner and for the purposes indicated above.
