Browsing this website with cookies and local storage mechanisms activated, implies the acceptance of their use in accordance with this policy. If you do not accept, you can configure your browser to prevent their use.

Cookies and local storage are part of the technology necessary for the operation of a website and are not inherently harmful, but it is important that you are aware of their implications for your privacy.

This policy forms part of our privacy policy and includes the following:

  • What are cookies?
  • What are cookies used for?
  • What is local storage?
  • What are third-party cookies?
  • Using browsers with private browsing mode
  • How to prevent the use of cookies and how to delete cookies?


What are cookies?

Cookies are small temporary files that are created on the user’s device (computer, phone, tablet, etc.) when you visit a website, and that allow the website to store information, for example to save your preferences or to recognize you on subsequent visits.

When a website creates a cookie on the user’s device, the following is stored:

  • The address/domain of the website that created the cookie.
  • The duration of the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years.
  • The content of the cookie.
  • The user can at any time configure their browser to prevent (block) the use of cookies by certain websites, as well as delete previously stored cookies.

What are cookies used for?

  • Essential technical cookies. They are used to manage the flow of navigation within the website or to keep the user connected to it. By disabling them, it is possible that some sections of the website may not work properly.
  • Personalization Cookies. Necessary to remember certain user preferences.
  • Analytical Cookies. They help us and third parties to collect information about the origin of the users and their navigation within the web, in order to perform a statistical analysis to improve the structure and contents.
  • Advertising Cookies. Used to manage the ads that appear on the web, decide the content or frequency of the ads.
  • Behavioral advertising cookies. They help to collect the user’s browsing habits to create a profile of their interests and to show ads tailored to them.
  • Social sharing cookies. They are necessary to identify the user in their social networks and thus allow them to share content.


What is local storage?

By local storage we mean any file created by the website on your browsing device. Cookies are one form of local storage, but there are others, for example:

  • Browser local storage. Some websites use local storage called “sessionStorage” and “localStorage” to store information; “sessionStorage” is automatically deleted when the browser is closed; to delete the “localStorage” the user must delete the browsing history.
  • Flash local storage (“Flash Local Shared Objects”). Flash is a browser plug-in that allows interactive and multimedia elements to be incorporated into a website. Flash also allows the visited website to store files on the user’s device.
  • Silverlight Local Storage (“Isolated Objects”). Silverlight is a browser plug-in that allows interactive and multimedia elements to be incorporated into a website. Silverlight also allows the visited website to store files on the user’s device.
  • The web beacon is a tracking technique that consists of inserting an image hosted on an Internet server into the web or email so that when the browser or email program connects to the server to download and view the image, access is logged. Sometimes these images are very small or transparent so that the user is not aware of their existence.


What are third-party cookies?

Many websites incorporate functions or features provided by third parties, such as:

  • Analytics of access and use of the pages.
  • Interactive maps.
  • Videos and other multimedia elements.
  • Social buttons.


The provider of a function or feature may make use of cookies and other local storage technologies based on its own criteria and purposes. Some providers use cookies and other tracking technologies to collect information about your browsing habits in order to show you advertising tailored to your interests.
