WHAT IS A COOKIE?
A cookie is a file that is downloaded to your computer when you visit a particular website. Cookies allow the website to store and recover information about the browsing habits of a user or his/her system and, depending on the information they contain and the manner in which the system is used, they may be used to identify the user.
However, cookies only gather information relating to the number of sites visited, the city of the IP address from which the site is accessed, the number of new users, the frequency and repetition of visits, the duration of visits and the browser or operator or terminal type through which the site is being visited. Under no circumstances do cookies reveal the forename, surname, address or other similar data about the user.
WHAT TYPES OF COOKIES ARE THERE?
There are either first-party or third-party cookies. First-party cookies are sent to the user’s system from a system or domain managed by the editor of the website that provides the service requested by the user. Third-party cookies are sent to the user’s system from a system or domain that is managed not by the editor, but by another entity that processes the data obtained via the cookies.
Cookies also take the form of session or persistent cookies. Whereas the former are designed to collect and store data while the user is accessing a website, persistent cookies keep data stored in the terminal so that they can be accessed and processed over a specified period by the cookie manager, ranging from a few minutes to several years.
WHO IS THE DATA CONTROLLER REGARDING THE COOKIES ON THIS WEBSITE?
The website owner and controller of the cookies used on this website, and its contact details, are accessible in the Disclaimer of this site.

HOW LONG ARE COOKIES STORED FOR?
Cookies shall be stored for the periods specified in the aforementioned information.
The legal basis for using all other cookies is the user’s consent which is requested when this website is accessed. Consent may be withdrawn at any time. Even if the user withdraws his/her consent, he/she shall still be able to browse the website and use its services, but any data provided before the withdrawal of consent shall continue to be processed legitimately. Notwithstanding the foregoing, as this website’s service cannot be provided without the use of technical cookies, they do not require the user’s consent.
WHO SHALL THE COOKIES BE SENT TO OR WHO MAY ACCESS THEM?
In the case of third-party cookies, in accordance with the provisions above, the cookies may be accessed and used by the third parties to improve their own services and to provide other companies with a better service.
In accordance with applicable regulations currently in force, data subjects are entitled to receive confirmation whether or not their personal data are being processed.

As far as cookies are concerned, these rights may be exercised subject to the restrictions connected with the nature of these files.
Subject to the conditions established in the General Data Protection Regulation, data subjects may restrict the processing of their data or request their portability, in which case the data shall only be retained for the purposes of exercising or defending claims.
In some circumstances and for reasons related to their particular situation, data subjects may object to the processing of their data. If you have given consent for any specific purpose, you are entitled to withdraw it at any time, but any data provided before the withdrawal of consent shall continue to be processed legitimately. If this is the case, we shall cease our processing operations or, if applicable, those to which the specific purpose relates, unless there is a compelling legitimate reason not to do so, or in the context of any exercise or defence of claims.
Regarding any violation of your rights, especially when you have not been able to adequately exercise your rights, you may lodge a complaint with the Spanish Data Protection Agency (contact details accessible via www.aepd.es) or any other competent supervisory authority.
