Cookies policy

A cookie is a file that is downloaded to your computer to access certain webpages. Among other things, cookies allow a web page to store and retrieve information about a user’s browsing habits or their computer and, depending on the information they contain and how they use their computer, can be used to recognise the user. The user’s browser stores cookies on the hard disk only during the current session, hence occupying a minimum memory space and not harming the computer. Cookies do not include any specific personal information, and most of them are deleted from the hard drive at the end of the browser session (so-called session cookies). 

Most browsers accept cookies as standard and, regardless of them, allow or prevent temporary or stored cookies in security settings.

What types of cookies exist?

  • Technical cookies: They allow the user to navigate through a web page, platform or application and use the different options or services included therein, such as controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, accessing parts of restricted access, remembering the elements that make up an order, carrying out the purchase process of an order, applying for registration or participation in an event, using security elements while browsing, storing content for video or sound broadcasting or sharing content through social networks. 
  • Customisation cookies: They allow the user to access the service with some predefined general features based on a series of criteria in the user’s terminal, such as the language, the type of browser through which the service is accessed, the regional settings from which the service is accessed, etc. 
  • Analysis cookies: These are cookies that are either processed by us or by third parties, thus allowing us to quantify the number of users and perform the measurement and statistical analysis of the use made by users of the service rendered.

Analytical Cookies

We inform you that we use analysis cookies. The application we use to obtain and analyse browsing information is: Google Analytics: www.google.com/analytics/ and https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/cookie-usage, which is a service provided by Google Inc., a Delaware company, whose main office is at 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View (California), CA 94043, United States (“Google”). Thus, an International Data Transfer occurs, as Google has its servers hosted in the US, i.e. outside the European Economic Area, and is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield agreement, whose information is available here, approved by the European Data Protection Committee. 

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files located on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the website. The information generated by the cookie about your website use (including your IP address) will be directly submitted and stored by Google on its servers. Google will use this information on our behalf in order to keep track of your website use, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services related to website activity and Internet use. Google may submit such information to third parties, where required to do so by law or where such third parties process the information on behalf of Google. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data available to Google.
Google Analytics is a simple, easy-to-use tool that helps website owners measure how users interact with website content. When a user browses the pages of a website, Google Analytics provides the owner of that website with JavaScript tags (libraries) to record information about the page a user has viewed, such as the page’s URL. Google Analytics JavaScript libraries use HTTP cookies to “remember” what a user has done on previous pages or in interactions with the website. 

Google Analytics supports two JavaScript libraries (tags) to measure the use of websites: analytics.js and ga.js.
The JavaScript analytics.js library is part of Universal Analytics and uses a single source cookie that contains an anonymous identifier to differentiate users. 

By default, this library configures cookies on the top-level domain, while excluding the first point, and configures the cookie path at the root level (/).
This library configures the following cookies:

Cookie name Duration Description
_ga 2 years It is used to distinguish users.
_gid 24 hours It is used to distinguish users.
_gat 1 minute It is used to limit the percentage of requests. If you have implemented Google Analytics using Google Tag Manager, this cookie will be called _dc_gtm_

The ga.js JavaScript library uses its own cookies to:

  • Determine the domain to be measured 
  • Distinguish unique users 
  • Limit the percentage of requests 
  • Remember the number and duration of previous visits 
  • Remember information on traffic sources 
  • Determine a session start and end 
  • Remember the value of custom visitor variables 

By default, this library configures cookies on the domain specified in the browser’s document.host property and configures the cookie path at the root level (/).
This library configures the following cookies:

Cookie name Default duration Description
__utma 2 years from setup or update It is used to distinguish users and sessions. The cookie is created when the JavaScript library is executed and there is no __utma cookie. The cookie is updated every time data is sent to Google Analytics.
__utmt 10 minutes It is used to limit the percentage of requests.
__utmb 30 minutes from setup or update It is used to determine new sessions or visits. The cookie is created when the JavaScript library is run and there is no __utmb cookie. The cookie is updated every time data is sent to Google Analytics.
__utmc End of browser session It is not used with ga.js. It is configured to interact with urchin.js. Previously, this cookie acted in conjunction with the __utmb cookie to determine if the user was in a new session or visit.
__utmz Six months from setup or update Stores the traffic or campaign source that explains how the user got to the site. The cookie is created when the JavaScript library is run and updated every time data is sent to Google Analytics.
__utmv 2 years from setup or update It is used to store data on custom visitor variables. This cookie is created when a programmer uses the _setCustomVar method with a custom visitor variable. It was also used for the removed _setVar method. The cookie is updated every time data is sent to Google Analytics.
