Cookies Policy

What are cookies and why do we use them on

A cookie is a file that is downloaded onto the user’s device when accessing certain web pages to store and recover information about the browsing activity from that device.

Cookies allow this website, among other things, to store and recover information on the user’s decisions and habits. On we use them to customise the experience on the website, to identify and remember the registered user and to make it easier to navigate.

It is important to note that the use of cookies does not provide personal data of the user, which for remains anonymous.

The user may configure their browser to not accept the use of cookies, in which case the experience will not be customised, but they may continue to access the content of our website as normal.

On the Wikipedia page (ática)) further information can be found on what cookies are and how they work.

What type of cookies are used on

Cookies, in terms of how long they are stored for, can be divided into session or permanent cookies. The first expires when the user closes the browser. The second expires once they have served their purpose (for example, so that the user is identified each time on the website and services) or when they are deleted manually.

And in terms of their purpose, Cookies can be classified as follows:

Performance Cookies: this type of Cookie remembers your preferences for the tools found in services, so you do not have to go back to configure the service each time you visit. For example, this type includes:

  • Volume settings for video or audio players.
  • Ensuring that video streaming speeds are compatible with your browser.

Geolocalisation Cookies: these Cookies are used to check what country you are in when you request a webpage or service. This Cookie is totally anonymous and it is only used to help to target the content to your location.

Registration Cookies: registration Cookies are created once the User has registered or after they have opened their session, and they are used to identify the user on the webpages and services for the following aims:

  • To identify the user so that, if a service or webpage closes, and the user goes back to this service or webpage at another time or day, the browser or computer will still identify them, making browsing easier without having to identify yourself again. This feature can be removed if the user clicks on “Log out”, which deletes this Cookie and the next time you visit the website the user will have to log in to be identified.
  • To check if the user is authorised to access certain services, for example, to participate in a competition.
    Additionally, some services may use third party connectors such as Facebook, Twitter or Google. When the user logs in to a service with credentials
  • from a social network or third party identification system, it authorises that third party to save a persistent cookie that remembers their identity and ensures access to the website until it expires. The user can delete this cookie and revoke access to the website through social networks or the third party identification system by updating their preferences on the social network.

Analytics Cookies: each time a user visits a website or service, a tool from an external provider (Google Analytics, comScore and similar) creates an analytics cookie on the user’s device. This cookie is only created on visiting the website and will help to anonymously identify the visitor on their future visits to services. The main aims are:

  • To allow the anonymous identification of users who browse, through the “Cookie” (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and, therefore, the approximate counting of the number of visitors and their trends over time.
  • To anonymously identify the most visited content and, therefore, the most attractive to users
  • To know if the user who is accessing the website is new or is visiting again.

Important: Unless the user decides to register on, the cookie will never be associated to any personal data that can identify them. These cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that help to optimise the users’ experience to the website.

More information on the privacy policy of these analytical tools at: Google Analytics.

Advertising Cookies: this type of cookie help to provide further information on the adverts shown to each anonymous user on the website. Among other things, they store the duration or frequency of which advertising positions are viewed, the user’s interaction with these, or users’ browsing patterns and/or behaviours as they help to shape a profile of advertising interest. This allows us to offer advertising to be shown related to the interests of the user.

To manage advertising, third party advertising tools are used (Adservers –”). These third parties may store cookies sent from the website from users’ browsers, as well as access to data stored on them.

The companies that generate these Cookies have their own privacy policies.

Currently, uses the platform Doubleclick from Google to manage these services. For more information, visit
