What are cookies?

The Web of INNOVACIÓN CIVIL ESPAÑOLA, S.L. (hereinafter the Web) uses Cookies. Cookies are files sent to a browser through a web server to record the user’s activities on a specific web. The first purpose of Cookies is to provide the user with faster access to the selected services. In addition, Cookies personalize the services offered by the Web, facilitating and offering each user information that is of interest or that may be of interest, in attention to the use made of the Services.

The Web uses Cookies to personalize and facilitate the user’s navigation to the maximum. Cookies are only associated with an anonymous user and their computer and do not provide references that allow users to deduce personal data. The user may configure his browser to notify and reject the installation of Cookies sent by the Web, without affecting the user’s ability to access the contents of said website. However, we would like to point out that, in any case, the performance of the website may decrease.

Registered users, who register or have logged in, can benefit from more personalized services and oriented to their profile, thanks to the combination of the data stored in the cookies with the personal data used at the time of registration. These users expressly authorize the use of this information for the indicated purpose, without prejudice to their right to refuse or disable the use of cookies.

Likewise, the Web will be able to know all the services requested by the users, so that they can provide or offer information appropriate to the tastes and preferences of each user.

What types of cookies are there?

Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into:

“Session cookies”: The first ones expire when the user closes the browser.
“Persistent cookies”. The second ones expire depending on when the purpose for which they serve is fulfilled (for example, so that the user remains identified in the Services) or when they are manually deleted.

Additionally, depending on its Objective, Cookies can be classified as follows:

Performance Cookies: This type of Cookie remembers your preferences for the tools found in the services, so you do not have to reconfigure the service each time you visit. As an example, this typology includes:
Volume settings of video or sound players.
The video transmission speeds that are compatible with your browser.
Geo-location 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 guide the content to your location.
Registration cookies: Registration cookies are generated once the user has registered or subsequently opened their session, and they are used to identify you in the services with the following objectives:
Keep the user identified so that, if a service closes, the browser or the computer and at another time or another day enters the service again, it will remain identified, facilitating its navigation without having to be identified again. This functionality can be suppressed if the user presses the “close session” functionality, so that this Cookie is deleted and the next time it enters the service the user 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 analytic cookie on the user’s computer. This Cookie that is only generated during the visit, will serve in future visits to the Web Services to identify the visitor anonymously. The main objectives that are pursued are:
Allow the anonymous identification of navigating users through the “Cookie” (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate count of the number of visitors and their trend over time.
Identify anonymously the most visited contents and therefore more attractive for users.
Know if the user who is accessing is new or repeat visit.
Important: Unless the user decides to register in a Web service, the “Cookie” will never be associated with any personal data that can identify him. These Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that help optimize the experience of the Users on the site.
Behavioral advertising cookies: This type of “Cookies” allows you to expand the information of the ads displayed to each anonymous user in the Web Services.

Third-party advertising cookies: In addition to the advertising managed by the Web in its Services, the Website offers its advertisers the option to serve advertisements through third parties (“AdServers”). In this way, these third parties can store Cookies sent from the Web Services from the browsers of the Users, as well as access the data stored therein.
