Cookies Policy

In this Cookie Policy, we explain what cookies are, what they are for, and how you can set or disable them if you wish. Furthermore, we explain which types of cookies are used, and for which purpose they are used by PLADUR, the party that controls the website through which you have accessed this Cookie Policy (the “Website”).

We encourage you to read this Cookie Policy carefully.

1. What are cookies and what are they for?

Cookies are files that are installed on your device (for example, your computer, tablet or mobile phone) when you visit a website. Cookies are used to ensure the quality, usability and correct functioning of websites, as well as to store and retrieve information on the website browsing habits and to customise their content, and can sometimes be used to recognise the user of a website.

Cookies are therefore essential to the functioning of the Internet, and in no way pose a risk to your computer or your device. Furthermore, they can help us to recognise the need for improvements in parts of the Website and to detect operational errors.


2. What types of cookies are there?

Cookies can be classified into several types, according to different criteria. Below, PLADUR offers you information about the different types of cookies we use on the Website.

2.1. Types of cookies based on the entity that manages them

Own cookies: these are cookies sent to your computer or device from the Website managed by PLADUR and from which the service is provided. If cookies are installed from a computer or domain managed by PLADUR, but the information collected through them is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered as own cookies if the third party uses them for its own purposes (for example, to improve the services it provides).

Third-party cookies: these are cookies sent to your computer from a computer or domain that is not managed by PLADUR, but by another entity, which processes the information obtained through them.

2.2. Types of cookies according to how long they remain activated on your device

Session Cookies: these are designed to collect and store information only for the duration of your visit to the Website, and they disappear at the end of the session. They are normally used to store information to be kept solely to guarantee the basic functionalities of PLADUR’s website during your visit.

Persistent cookies: these cookies store information for a longer period of time, which can be accessed and processed by the person responsible for the cookie during that period. This period varies with each cookie, and can range from a few minutes to several years.

2.3. Types of cookies according to their purpose

Session Cookies: these are those that allow you to browse the Website. Session cookies will allow you to use the different functionalities and services of the Website, for example, logging in with your identifier.

Preference or customisation cookies: these are cookies that remember information so that you can access the Website with features that may differentiate your experience from that of other users, such as the look and feel of the Website, which may vary depending on the type of browser you use.

Analysis or measurement cookies: these are cookies that allow the monitoring and analysis of your behaviour on the Website. This information allows use of the Website to be measured and analysed, and user browsing profiles to be drawn up, with the aim of making the necessary improvements to the Website based on the analysis of the browsing data collected.

Advertising cookies: these are cookies that allow the management, in the most efficient way possible, of the advertising spaces that, where appropriate, have been included in PLADUR’s website.

Behavioural advertising cookies: these are cookies that allow effective management of advertising spaces that may have been included in the Website, through the storage of information on users’ behaviour obtained through continuous observation of their browsing habits, which allows the development of a specific profile to display advertising based on it.
