Policy regarding Cookies

This website, like most sites on the Internet, uses Cookies to improve and optimise the users’ experience. Below, you will find detailed information about what “Cookies” are, what type are used by this website, how you can deactivate them in your search engine and how to specifically block the installation of Cookies by third parties.

What are Cookies and how are they used by the Vocento websites?

Cookies are files which the website or application you are using installs on your search engine or your device (Smartphone, Tablet or connected TV) while you are looking through its pages or through the app. They are used to collate information about your visit. Like most sites on the Internet, the Vocento web portals use Cookies to:

  • Ensure that the web pages can function correctly
  • Store your preferences, such as the language you have selected or the size of the print.
  • Find out about your search experiences.
  • Collect anonymous statistical information, such as which pages you have visited and how much time you have spent on our media.

The use of Cookies enables us to optimise your navigation by adapting the information and services to match your interests, to give you a better experience whenever you visit us; for that reason, the information we collect through the Cookies is analysed by the person in charge of the Website and by Comeresa Prensa S.L.U. Comeresa is the company of the Vocento group – the group of which the Website is also a part – which manages the services which are common to the other companies. The Vocento websites use Cookies to operate, adapt and facilitate Users’ navigation to the maximum.

The Cookies are associated solely with an anonymous user and their computer/device, and they do not allow personal details to be known. You can configure your navigator at any time to modify and/or block the installation of the Cookies sent by the Vocento websites; this will not impede your access to the contents, unless the cookies are essential for the provision of the service and the website could not function without them. Bear in mind in any case that if you modify and/or block the installation of the Cookies, the quality of operation of the Services and their availability could be affected.

The Users who complete the registration process or have begun a session with their access details can access personal services and those which have been adapted to their preferences from the personal information supplied at the time of registering and stored in the Cookie on their navigator.

Vocento’s email-marketing tools use small images which are invisible to the users and are included in the emails. This technology enables us to know whether an email has been read or not, and on which date, the IP address from which it has been consulted, etc. With this information, we carry out statistical and analytic studies about the sending and receiving of the emails, to improve the services to which the user is subscribed and offer them information which may be of interest.

Why are Cookies important?

  • From a technical point of view, they enable the websites to function in a more agile fashion and to be adapted to the preferences of the users, for example by remembering the language or the currency of the country, or detecting the access device.
  • They establish levels of protection and security which impede or complicate cyber -attacks against the website or its users.
  • They enable the managers of the media to study the statistics collected by the Cookies in order to improve the quality and experience of its services.
  • They help us to optimise the publicity which we show to the users, offering them the type which best matches their interests.

What are the different types of Cookies which we use at Vocento?

  • The ‘session Cookies’ expire when the User leaves the page or closes the navigator; in other words they are active during the visit to the website and are erased from the computer when the User leaves it.

  • The ‘permanent Cookies’ expire when their objective is fulfilled, or when they are erased manually. They have an erasure date and are normally used in online shopping, personalisation and in the registry, so Users do not have to keep providing their password.
  • Also, depending on the entity which manages the equipment or domain from which the cookies are sent and handles the data obtained from them, we can distinguish between own Cookies and those of third parties.

  • Own Cookies are the ones which are sent to your computer and managed exclusively by us for a better functioning of the Website. The information which we collect is used to improve the quality of our service and your experience as a user.

  • If you interact with the content of our Website third party cookies may also be installed (for example, if you click on social networks or look at videos which are housed on another web site). These are established by a domain which is different to our Website. We cannot access the data stored on the cookies of other websites when you navigate those sites.
