Cookies allow a website, among other things, to store and retrieve information about a user’s browsing habits or their computer. Depending on the information they contain and the way they use their computer, they may be used to recognize the user.
A cookie is stored on a computer or device in order to identify the browser while interacting with our websites or applications. A website can set a cookie in the browser if preferences allow it to do so. A browser will only permit a website to access the cookies it sets, not those at other websites.

Why are they important?
- From a technical point of view, they allow websites to work in a more agile way, tailored to user preferences, such as storing the language, currency or to detect the device used for access.
- They establish levels of protection and security that prevent or avoid cyber attacks against the website or its users.
- They allow media managers to learn from statistical data compiled in the cookies to improve the quality and experience of their services.
- They are used to optimize the advertising we display to users, offering that which best suits their interests.

The user’s browsing of our website is analysed in order to improve the supply of products or services that we offer.
- Advertising Cookies: These are those which enable the management of advertising spaces in the most efficient way possible. Where appropriate, the publisher has included a website, application or platform to provide the service requested based on criteria such as the edited content or frequency in which the ads are displayed.
- Behavioural Advertising Cookies: These are those which enable the management of advertising spaces in the most efficient way possible. Where appropriate, the publisher has included a website, application or platform to provide the service requested. These cookies store information on user behaviour obtained through the continued observation of a user’s browsing habits, allowing the development of a specific profile to display ads based on the same.
Likewise, it is also possible for a cookie to be installed in your browser on visiting a website or opening an email in which an advertisement or promotional material regarding our products or services is published. This helps us to show search-related advertising based on a user’s previous searches at a later time, as well as to develop and control our advertisements regarding, for example, the number of times they are viewed, where they appear, what time they are seen, etc.
