Before starting to browse this website, you will have had the option to authorise the use of all or some cookies, or reject them, or configure them using the information available in an initial layer giving a cookie notice. In any case, you can always reject cookies by adjusting your browser settings.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a file that is downloaded to your computer when you access certain websites. Cookies allow a website to, inter alia, store and recover information on the browsing habits of a user or her / his equipment, see what websites have been visited, the connection time, the city to which the IP address is assigned from which a website is accessed, the number of new users, the frequency and recurrence of visits, the duration of the visit, the browser, operator, or terminal from which the visit is made, etc. Similarly, depending on the information that cookies contain and how you use your equipment, cookies can be used to recognise the user.
In addition, there are other mechanisms and technologies to store that type of information. This website does not use pixels, tracking beacons, or fingerprinting techniques.
What types of cookies are there?
Cookies are classified into three categories, depending on the entity that manages the equipment or domain that sends the cookies and processes the data; the period of time during which they remain active in the terminal equipment; and the purpose for which the data obtained are processed.
Depending on their origin, cookies are classified as:
a) own cookies: cookies that are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from equipment or a domain manager by the publisher and from the service requested by the user is provided;
b) third-party cookies: cookies that are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from equipment or a domain that is not managed by the publisher, but by another processing entity.
Based on their duration, cookies can be:
a) session cookies: cookies that are designed to collect and store data whilst the user accesses a website. They are usually used to store information that only needs to be stored for the provision of the service requested by the user on a single occasion, and they disappear at the end of the session;
b) persistent cookies: cookies in which data remain stored on the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a determined period by the cookie controller; that period can range from a few minutes to several years.
Depending on their purpose, cookies are classified as:
a) technical cookies: cookies that enable the user to browse a website and use the various options or services available on it, including those that the publisher uses to enable the management and operation of the website and authorise its functions and services (identifying the session, accessing restricted-access areas, recalling items that make up an order, managing payment, etc.);
b) preference cookies or personalisation cookies: cookies that allow information to be recalled for the user to access the service with specific characteristics that may distinguish her / his experience from that of other users (language, number of results to be displayed when the user carries out a search, region from which the service is accessed, etc.);
c) analysis or measurement cookies: cookies that enable the cookie controller to track and analyse the behaviour of users on the websites to which they are linked, including quantifying the impact of advertising;
d) behavioural-advertising cookies: cookies that store information on users’ behaviour obtained through the continuous observation of their browsing habits, which enables a specific profile to be drawn up to display advertising based on that behaviour.
Why is your consent important?
In accordance with the Law on Information-Society Services and on Electronic Commerce, EQUIMODAL can install cookies on users’ terminals on condition that they have given their consent after having received clear and complete information on cookie use. The aim of this policy is to provide that information in a way that is useful to the user.
However, it must be made clear that not all cookies have the same status in law.
Because some cookies are not considered intrusive and because they are necessary for browsing, they are exempt from the requirement that their use be notified. Those are cookies that enable communication between the user’s equipment and the network, as well as cookies that strictly provide a service expressly requested by the user, such as:
- user-input cookies;
- user-authentication or user-identification cookies (only session cookies);
- user-security cookies;
- multimedia-player session cookies;
- load-balancing session cookies;
- user-interface personalisation cookies;
- plug-in cookies for exchanging social content.
