Use of Cookies

By means of the present notice of the web www.grupo-alonso.com with holder EUROTRANSAC S.L., with C.I.F. B96046156, informs you of its policy of cookies, fulfilling this way the foreseen in the article 22.2 of the Law 34/2002, of July 11 of Services of the Society of the Information and of Electronic Trade.

What is a Cookie?
Cookies are files that are downloaded to the user’s terminal (computer/ smartphone/ tablet) when accessing certain web pages and which are stored in the user’s memory. Cookies make it possible, among other things, to store and retrieve information about the browsing habits of a user or his/her computer, to see which pages are visited, the connection time, to analyse the functioning of a page, if there are technical problems, etc. Depending on the information they contain and the way the terminal is used, they can be used to recognize the user.

What types of cookies are there?
There are several types of cookies depending on different criteria:

Depending on how long they remain activated:

  • Session Cookies. These are a type of cookie designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a web page.
  • Permanent Cookies: They are a type of Cookies in which the data is still stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed during a defined period of time by the person responsible for the Cookie.

Depending on the ownership:

  • Own cookies. They are those belonging to the owner of the website.
  • Third party cookies. They are those owned by a third party, other than the owner of the website, who will be the one to process the information collected.

Depending on its purpose:

  • Technical cookies: are those that allow the user to navigate through a web page, platform or application and to use the different options or services that exist therein, including those that the editor uses to allow the management and operation of the web page and to enable its functions and services, such as, for example, to control the traffic and communication of data, to identify the session, to access parts of restricted access, to remember the elements that make up an order, to carry out the purchase process of an order, manage payment, control fraud linked to the security of the service, make the request for registration or participation in an event, count visits for the purposes of invoicing the licences of the software with which the service operates (website, platform or application), use security elements during navigation, store content for the broadcasting of videos or sound, enable dynamic content (for example, animation for loading a text or image) or share content through social networks.
  • Also belonging to this category, due to their technical nature, are those Cookies that allow the management, in the most efficient way possible, of advertising spaces that, as another design or “layout” element of the service offered to the user, the publisher has included in a web page, application or platform based on criteria such as the content edited, without information being collected from users for different purposes, such as personalising that advertising content or other content. Technical Cookies will be exempt from the obligations established in article 22.2 of the LSSI when they allow the service requested by the user to be provided, as is the case with the Cookies listed in the previous paragraphs. However, if these Cookies are also used for non-exempt purposes (for example, for behavioural advertising), they will be subject to these obligations.
  • Preference or personalization cookies: these are Cookies that allow the user to remember information so that he or she can access the service with certain characteristics that may differentiate his or her experience from that of other users, such as, for example, the language, the number of results to be shown when the user performs a search, the appearance or content of the service depending on the type of browser through which the user accesses the service or the region from which he or she accesses the service, etc.

If the user chooses these characteristics (for example, if he or she selects the language of a website by clicking on the icon of the corresponding country’s flag), the Cookies will be exempt from the obligations of article 22.2 of the LSSI as they are considered to be a service expressly requested by the user, and this provided that the Cookies are exclusively for the purpose selected.

  • Analysis or measurement Cookies: these allow the person responsible for them to monitor and analyse the behaviour of the users of the websites to which they are linked, including the quantification of the impacts of the advertisements. The information collected through this type of cookie is used to measure the activity of the websites, application or platform, in order to introduce improvements based on the analysis of the data of use made by the users of the service. With regard to the processing of data collected through analysis cookies, although they are not exempt from the duty to obtain informed consent for their use, it is unlikely that they represent a risk to user privacy provided that they are first-party cookies, that they process aggregate data for strictly statistical purposes, that information is provided on their uses and that the possibility is included for users to express their refusal of their use.
  • Behavioral advertising Cookies: are those that store information on the behavior of users obtained through continuous observation of their browsing habits, which allows the development of a specific profile to display advertising based on it.

Depending on the time they remain activated on the terminal equipment we can distinguish:

  • Session Cookies: these are designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a website. They are usually used to store information that is only interesting to keep for the provision of the service requested by the user on one occasion (for example, a list of products purchased) and disappear at the end of the session.
  • Persistent Cookies: are those in which the data is still stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed during a period defined by the person responsible for the Cookies, which can range from a few minutes to several years.

Cookies are used to offer you personalized services and/or advertising, to analyze the operation of the system, to recognize you when you access as a user, to locate incidents and problems that may arise and to solve them as quickly as possible, as well as to analyze and measure the use and activity of the website.
