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 his session, and are used to identify him in the services with the following objectives:
Keep the user identified so that, if they close a service, the browser or the computer and at another time or another day they re-enter said service, they will continue to be identified, thus facilitating their browsing without having to identify themselves again. This functionality can be suppressed if the user presses the “close session” functionality, so that this Cookie is eliminated and the next time the user 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 Every 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 during the visit, will serve in future visits to the Web Services to identify the visitor anonymously. The main objectives pursued are:
Allow anonymous identification of browsing 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.
Anonymously identify the most visited content and therefore the most attractive to users.
Know if the user who is accessing is new or repeats visit.
Important: Unless the user decides to register for a Web service, the “Cookie” will never be associated with any personal data that can identify them. These Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that help to optimize the User’s experience on the site.
