1. What are cookies?

Cookies are small files or devices that are downloaded and stored on your terminal (that is, the device used to access the Platform: computer, mobile phone, tablet or any other connected device…) and allow the Platform or website to recall information regarding your visit.
In general, and as stated in the Cookies Guide published by the Spanish Data Protection Agency (AEPD), which you can consult here, there are various types of cookies:

Depending on the entity that administers the computer or domain from where the cookies are sent and processes the data obtained, we can distinguish between:

  • First-party cookies: These are cookies that are sent to the user’s terminal from a computer or domain administered by the editor of the platform, in this case ARQUIMEA, from which the service requested by the user is provided.
  • Third-party cookies: These are cookies that are sent to the user’s terminal from a computer or domain that is not administered by the editor of the platform, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through these cookies. In the event that the cookies are installed from a computer or domain administered by ARQUIMEA, but, nevertheless, the information collected through them is administered by a third party, they cannot be considered as ARQUIMEA first-party cookies. In this regard, ARQUIMEA may contract the services of analysis and measurement companies that measure and/or analyse the browsing behaviour of users on the platform and, in this regard, act in its name and on its behalf, by analysing the data obtained through the use of the cookies of these third parties, all with the sole purpose of improving the service provided by ARQUIMEA.

Depending on the purpose for which the data obtained through cookies are processed, we can distinguish between:

  • Technical cookies: These are cookies that allow users to browse the platform and use the different options or services that exist therein, for example, to control traffic and the communication of data, identify the session, access restricted information, recall the elements that are part of a request, register or participate in an event, employ security elements during browsing, store content for the dissemination of videos or sound, or share content via social media.
  • Functionality or customisation cookies: These are cookies that allow users to access the service with certain characteristics of a general nature that are predefined based on a series of criteria in the user’s terminal, for example, the language, the type of browser used to access the service or the regional configuration from which the service is accessed, inter alia.
  • Analysis cookies: These are cookies that track and analyse the behaviour of users on the websites to which said cookies are linked. The information collected through this type of cookies is used to measure the activity on the platform and to create browsing profiles of the users of said sites, applications and platforms, in order to introduce improvements based on an analysis of the data relative to the use carried out by the users of the service.
  • Advertising cookies: These are cookies that enable the administration, in the most efficient manner possible, of the advertising spaces which, where applicable, the editor has included within the website, application or platform from which it provides the service requested, based on criteria such as the content edited or the frequency with which advertisements are shown.
  • Behavioural advertising cookies: These are cookies that enable the administration, in the most efficient manner possible, of the advertising spaces which, where applicable, the editor has included within the website, application or platform from which it provides the service requested. These cookies store information on the behaviour of users obtained through the continued observation of their browsing habits, which enables the development of a specific profile to show advertising based on the same.

Depending on the length of time they remain activated in the computer (duration), we can distinguish:

  • Session cookies: Cookies designed to collect and store data while the user accesses the platform. Session cookies allow a website to recognise the user.
  • Persistent cookies: Cookies for which the data remains stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a period of time defined by the party responsible for the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years.
