The primary purpose of Cookies is to provide the user with quicker access to selected services. Additionally, Cookies personalize the services offered by the Website, providing each user with information of interest based on their use of the services.
The Website uses Cookies to customize and facilitate user navigation to the maximum. Cookies are associated only with an anonymous user and their computer and do not provide references that allow deducing personal data of the user. The user can configure their browser to notify and reject the installation of Cookies sent by the Website, without affecting the user’s ability to access the contents of the website.

Such users expressly authorize the use of this information for the indicated purpose, without prejudice to their right to reject or disable the use of cookies.

2. What types of cookies are there?

Cookies, based on their Persistence, can be divided into:

Session Cookies Expire when the user closes the browser.
Persistent Cookies Expire based on when they fulfill their purpose (e.g., to keep the user identified in the Services) or when manually deleted.

Based on their Owner, they can be divided into:

First-party Cookies These are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a machine or domain managed by the publisher itself and from which the requested service is provided.
Third-party Cookies These are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a machine or domain that is not managed by the editor but by another entity that processes data obtained through cookies.

Additionally, based on their Purpose, Cookies can be classified as follows:

Performance Cookies This type of Cookie remembers your preferences for the tools found in the services, so you don’t have to configure the service each time you visit. For example, this typology includes:

  • Volume settings for video or sound players.
  • Video streaming speeds compatible with your browser.
Geo-location Cookies These Cookies are used to determine the country in which you are located when a service is requested. This Cookie is completely anonymous and is only used to help tailor content to your location.
Log Cookies Log Cookies are generated once the user has registered or subsequently opened their session and are used to identify them in the services with the following objectives:

  • Maintain user identification so that, if they close a service, the browser, or the computer and at another time or another day re-enter said service, they will still be identified, thus facilitating navigation without having to identify themselves again. This functionality can be suppressed if the user clicks the “log out” functionality, so that this Cookie is deleted, and the next time the user enters the service, they will have to log in to be identified.
  • Check if the user is authorized to access certain services, for example, to participate in a contest.
Analytical Cookies Each time a User visits a service, a tool from an external provider generates an analytical Cookie on the user’s computer. This Cookie, which is only generated on the visit, will serve on subsequent visits to the Website’s Services to anonymously identify the visitor. The main objectives pursued are:

  • Allow the anonymous identification of browsing users through the “Cookie” (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate counting of the number of visitors and their trend over time.
  • Anonymously identify the most visited content and therefore most attractive to users.
  • Know if the user accessing is new or a repeat visitor.

Important: Unless the user decides to register for a Website service, the “Cookie” will never be associated with any personal data that can identify them. Such Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes to help optimize Users’ experience on the site.

Behavioral Advertising Cookies This type of “Cookies” allows for expanding the information of the ads shown to each anonymous user in the Website’s Services. Among other things, it stores the duration or frequency of viewing advertising positions, the interaction with them, or the user’s browsing patterns and/or behaviors, as they help shape an advertising interest profile. Thus, they allow offering advertising related to the user’s interests.
Third-party Advertising Cookies In addition to the advertising managed by the Website in its Services, the Website offers its advertisers the option to serve ads through third parties (“AdServers”). In this way, these third parties can store Cookies sent from the Website’s Services from Users’ browsers, as well as access the data stored in them.
