WHAT IS A COOKIE?
A “Cookie” is a small file that is stored on the user’s computer, mobile phone or other device with information about their browsing, which allows us to recognise them. The use of “cookies” helps us to improve the quality of our website, allowing us to control which pages our users find useful and which ones they do not.
Cookies are essential for the functioning of the Internet, providing countless advantages in the provision of interactive services, facilitating navigation and the usability of our website. Please note that cookies cannot harm your computer and that, in return, enabling them helps us to identify and resolve errors.
For more information, there are two types of cookies:
Session cookies: temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave the website, so none remain stored on the user’s hard drive. The information obtained from these cookies is used to analyse traffic patterns on the website. In the long run, this allows us to provide a better experience to make the content better and easier to use.
Cookies persistentes: Persistent cookies: remain stored on the hard drive and our website reads them every time you visit again. A permanent website has a certain expiration date. The cookie will cease to function after that date.
COOKIES USED ON OUR SIDE
The main cookies used on our website are those that are used for proper navigation, those that perform services requested by the user or those that help make sure that the content of the website is loaded efficiently.
On the other hand, third party cookies, managed by external entities, are used to provide us with services we request order to improve the user’s experience when browsing, or for the features on our website. The main “third-party cookies” are those necessary to obtain access statistics, analyses, to guarantee that transactions are carried out, those used by social networks, or by external content complements.
Below is a table with the cookies, tags or other similar devices used by this website, indicating the purpose, duration and management (by us or by third parties) of each of them:

Identifies the user’s http session. This one is common to all web applications to identify requests from a user in a session.
Allow the user’s navigation status to be identified (login, first page, first access, scroll status, voting status, etc.).
Store user-selected session values such as store, language, currency, products, size, etc.
Favorites and latest preferences
Allow the user’s favourite preferences to be saved (from online stores, for example) or the latest ones (from online stores, products, consent for cookie installation, etc.) in any subsequent visits to the website.
Store information about the mini shopping basket, as well as user identification data associated with that basket.
Allow the management of changes between secure (https) and non-secure (http) domains.
Used to know a user’s origin when they arrive at a page of this website, for example, if they arrive at the product detail page from a product grid, from the search engine or from an external page.
Google Analytics (_utma, _utmb, _utmc, _utmd, _utmv, _utmz, _ga…).
Allow you to track your website using Google Analytics, which is a service provided by Google to obtain information about user access when visiting websites. Some of the data saved for later analysis are: number of times a user visits the website, dates of the first and last visit, duration of visits, from which page a user accessed the website, which search engine was used to get to the website or which link was clicked on, from which place in the world it was accessed, and so on. The settings for these cookies are predetermined by the service offered by Google, so we suggest that you check the Google Analytics privacy page, http://www.google.com/intl/es/analytics/privacyoverview.html, for more information about the cookies you use and how to disable them (bearing in mind that we are not responsible for the content or accuracy of third party websites).
