Cookies Policy of the Ramón Areces Foundation

The Ramón Areces Foundation uses cookies to provide a better service and to give you a better browsing experience. We want to inform you clearly and precisely about the cookies we use, and we will now outline what a cookie is, what they are used for, what types of cookies we use, for what purposes, and how you can configure them or deactivate them if you so wish.

What is a cookie and what is it used for?

A "Cookie" is a small file which is placed on the user's computer, tablet, smartphone or any other device, with information about your browsing.

Together, the cookies of all our users enable us to improve the quality of our website, allowing us to track which pages are useful, which ones are not, and which ones could be improved.

Cookies are essential for the functioning of the internet, offering innumerable advantages in the provision of interactive services, facilitating browsing and the usability of our website.

Cookies will never damage your equipment. Just the opposite: the fact that they are active helps us to identify and resolve errors.

What types of cookies do we use?

Depending on the entity that manages them:

  • First-party cookies: These are the ones which are sent to your device from our own equipment or domains, from which we provide the service you request from us.
  • Third-party cookies: These are the ones which are sent to your device from equipment or domains which are not managed by us, but rather by collaborating entities. For example, those used by social networks, or by external content such as Google Maps.

Depending on the length of time they remain activated:

  • Session cookies: These are temporary cookies which remain in the cookies file of your browser until you leave the website, so none remain on your computer's hard disk. The information obtained by means of these cookies is used to analyse traffic patterns on the website. In the long term, this enables us to provide a better experience, to improve the information and facilitate its use.
  • Persistent cookies: These are stored on your hard disk and our website reads them every time you make a new visit. A persistent cookie has a certain expiry date. The cookie will stop functioning after that date. Generally, we use these cookies to facilitate the purchasing and registration services.

Depending on their purpose:

  • Technical cookies: These are necessary for browsing and for the correct functioning of our website. For example, they enable us to track the traffic and the communication of data, to access restricted access areas, to carry out the order purchasing process, to use security elements, to store contents in order to be able to disseminate videos or to share contents through social networks.
  • Personalisation cookies: These enable you to access the service with certain predefined characteristics depending on a series of criteria, such as the language, the type of browser you use to access the service, the regional set-up from where you access the service, etc.
  • Analysis cookies: These enable us to quantify the number of users and to carry out the measurement and analysis of the use which users make of the services provided. For this, your browsing on our website is analysed in order to improve the range of products and services we offer.
  • Advertising cookies: These permit the management, in the most efficient way possible, of the advertising spaces which may be included on our website.
  • Behavioural advertising cookies: These cookies store information on users' behaviour, obtained through constant observation. Thanks to them, we can know your internet browsing habits and show you advertising related to your browsing profile.
