What are cookies?

Cookies are a set of data which a server deposits within the user's browser to collect standard Internet log information and information on the behaviour of visitors to a website. In other words, they are small text files that are stored on the computer's hard drive and which serve to identify the user when they connect to the website again. Their purpose is to record the user's visit and save certain information. Their use is common and frequent on the Internet since it allows the pages to function more efficiently and to achieve greater personalisation and analysis of user behaviour.

What types of cookies are there?

The cookies used on our website are session cookies and third party cookies, which allow us to store and access information relating to language, type of browser used, and other general characteristics predefined by the user, as well as to follow and analyse the activity carried out, in order to implement improvements and provide our services in a more efficient and personalised manner.

Cookies, depending on their permanency, can be divided into session or permanent cookies. Ones that expire when the user closes the browser. Ones that expire depending on when they fulfill their purpose they serve (for example, so that the user remains identified on El Poaig's services) or when they are deleted manually.

Additionally, depending on their purpose, cookies can be classified as follows:

Performance Cookies

This type of Cookie remembers your preferences for the tools which are found within the services, so you don't have to reconfigure the service each time you visit. As an example, this type includes video or audio player volume settings. Video transmission speeds which may be compatible with your browser. Items saved in the "shopping cart" with e-commerce services such as stores.

Geolocation cookies

These cookies are used to find out which country you are in when a service is requested. This cookie is completely anonymous and is only used to help target content to your location.

Registration cookies

Registration cookies are generated once a user has registered or subsequently logged in, and are used to identify them in the services for the following purposes:

To keep the user identified so that, if they close a service, the browser or the computer and at another time or another day they enter the service again, they will continue to be identified, thus enabling their browsing without having to identify themselves again. This functionality can be disabled if the user clicks on 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 authorised to access certain services, for example, to participate in a competition.

Additionally, some services may use social media connectors such as Facebook or Twitter. When the user signs up for a service with social network credentials, they authorize the social network to store a persistent cookie which remembers their identity and grants them access to the services until it expires. The user can delete this cookie and revoke access to the services through social networks by updating their preferences on the social network they specify.

Analytical cookies

Every time a user visits a service, a tool from a third-party provider generates an analytical cookie on the user's computer. This cookie, which is only generated on the visit, will be used on future visits to El Poaig's services to anonymously identify the visitor. The main objectives pursued are:

To allow the anonymous identification of the browsing users through the cookie (it identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate count of the number of visitors and their tendency over time.
To anonymously identify the most visited content and therefore most attractive content for users To know whether the user who is accessing is new or visiting again.

Important: Unless the user decides to register for a service by El Poaig, the cookie will never be associated with any personal data that can identify them. These cookies will only be used for statistical purposes to help optimise the users' experience on the site.

Advertising cookies

This type of cookie allows for more information about the ads shown to each anonymous user on El Poaig's services. Amongst other things, the duration or frequency of visualisation of advertising positions, the interaction with them, or the user's browsing and/or behavioural patterns are stored as they help to form a profile of advertising interest.
