Likewise, the Web will be able to know all the services requested by the users, so that they can facilitate or offer information appropriate to the tastes and preferences of each user.
- Type, purpose and operation of Cookies
Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into “Session Cookies” or “Persistent Cookies”. The first ones expire when the user closes the browser. The second ones expire depending on when the objective for which they serve is met (for example, for the user to remain identified in the Services) or when they are manually deleted.
Additionally, depending on their purpose, Cookies can be classified as follows:
- Performance Cookies: This type of Cookie remembers your preferences for the tools found in the services, so you do not have to reconfigure the service every time you visit. By way of example, this typology includes:
- Volume adjustments of video or sound players.
- Video transmission speeds that are compatible with your browser.
- Geolocation Cookies: These Cookies are used to find out what country you are in when you request a service. This Cookie is completely anonymous, and is only used to help guide the content to its location.
- Registration Cookies: Registration Cookies are generated once the user has registered or has subsequently opened his session, and are used to identify him in the services with the following objectives:
- Keep the user identified so that, if he closes a service, the browser or the computer and at another time or another day re-enters that service, it will remain identified, facilitating its navigation without having to re-identify. This functionality can be suppressed if the user clicks the “close session” functionality, so this cookie is deleted and the next time the user enters the service, the user will have to log in to be identified.
- Check if the user is authorized to access certain services, for example, to participate in a contest.
- Analytical Cookies: Each time a user visits a service, a tool from an external provider (Google Analytics, Comscore, and similar that can be added to this list in case they vary in relation to the current ones) generates an analytic Cookie on the user’s computer. This Cookie that is generated only in the visit, will serve in next visits to the Services of the Web to anonymously identify the visitor. The main objectives pursued are:
- Allow anonymous identification of browsing users through the “Cookie” (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate accounting of the number of visitors and their trend over time.
- Identify anonymously the most visited content and therefore more attractive to users.
- Know if the user that is accessing is new or repeats visit.
Important: Unless the user decides to register in a Web service, the “Cookie” will never be associated with any personal data that can identify you. Such Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that help to optimize the Users’ experience on the site.

- Google Analytics: https://www.google.com/intl/es/policies/privacy/
- Advertisement Cookies: This type of “Cookies” allows to expand the information of the displayed ads to each anonymous user in the Services of the Web. Among others, the duration or frequency of display of advertising positions, interaction with them, or browsing patterns and / or user compartments is stored as they help shape an advertising interest profile. In this way, they allow to offer advertising related to the interests of the user.
- Third Parties Advertisement Cookies: In addition to Web-managed advertising in its Services, the Web offers its advertisers the option of serving ads through third parties (“AdServers”). In this way, these third parties can store Cookies sent from the Web Services from Users’ browsers, as well as access the data stored in them.
The companies that generate these cookies have their own privacy policies. Currently, the Web uses the Real Media and Weborama platform to manage these services:
