WHAT ARE COOKIES?
“Cookies” are small temporary files that are created on the user’s device (computer, phone, tablet, etc.) when you visit a website, and that allow it to store information, for example, to save your preferences for use or to recognise you on subsequent visits.
When a website creates a cookie on the user’s device, the following is stored:
- The address/domain of the website that created the cookie;
- The duration of the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years; and
- The contents of the cookie.
WHAT ARE COOKIES USED FOR?
- Essential technical cookies. They are used to manage the navigation flow within the website or to keep the user connected to it. When disabling them, it is possible that some section of the website will not work correctly.
- Customization cookies. These cookies are necessary for remembering certain user preferences.
- Analytic cookies. These cookies help us and third parties to record where visits are originated and how users interact with the website, in order to create analytics that help us to enhance the website structure and contents.

WHAT IS LOCAL STORAGE?
Local storage is a file created by a website in your device. Cookies are a form of local storage, but there are others, for example:
- Browser local storage. Some websites use local storages called “sessionStorage” and “localStorage” to store information. “SessionStorage” is automatically deleted when the browser is closed. However, to delete the “localStorage” the user must delete his/her browsing history.
- Flash local storage (“Flash Local Shared Objects”). Flash is a browser add-on that allows you to incorporate interactive and multimedia elements in a website. Flash also allows the visited website to store files on the user’s device.
- Silverlight local storage (“Isolated Objects”). Silverlight is a browser plug-in used to add interactive and multimedia content to websites. Silverlight also allows the visited website to store files on the user’s device.
- The web beacon is a tracking technique that consists of inserting an image hosted on an Internet server on the web or in an email so that, when the browser or email program connects to said server to download and view the image, the access is logged. Sometimes these images are very small or transparent in such a way that the user is not aware of their existence.
