Cookie policies

Velas Alicante provides information about the use of cookies on its website:

What are cookies?

Cookies are files that can be downloaded to your computer through web pages. They are tools that play an essential role in providing numerous services in the information society. Among other things, they allow a website to store and retrieve information about a user's or their computer's browsing habits, and depending on the information obtained, they can be used to recognize the user and improve the service offered.

Types of cookies

According to the entity that manages the domain from which cookies are sent and processes the obtained data, two types can be distinguished:

  • First-party cookies: those sent to the user's terminal equipment from a device or domain managed by the editor itself and from which the requested service is provided by the user.
  • Third-party cookies: those sent to the user's terminal equipment from a device or domain that is not managed by the editor but by another entity that processes the data obtained through cookies.

In the event that cookies are installed from a device or domain managed by the editor itself, but the information collected through them is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered as first-party cookies.

That's correct. When cookies are installed from a domain managed by the website's publisher (editor), but the data collected through those cookies is processed by a third party, they are typically categorized as third-party cookies, not first-party cookies.

  • Session cookies: designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a website. They are usually used to store information that is only of interest to keep for the provision of the service requested by the user on a single occasion (e.g., a list of purchased products).
  • Persistent cookies: data remains stored on the device and can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the cookie's controller, which can range from a few minutes to several years.

Finally, there is another classification with five types of cookies according to the purpose for which the obtained data is processed:

• Technical cookies: those that allow the user to navigate through a website, platform, or application and use the different options or services available on it, such as, for example, controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, accessing restricted access areas, remembering the items that make up an order, carrying out the process of purchasing an order, making the request for registration or participation in an event, using security elements during navigation, storing content for video or sound broadcasting, or sharing content through social networks

  • Customization 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 they access the service, the regional configuration from which they access the service, etc
  • Analytics cookies: they allow the entity responsible for them to track and analyze the behavior of users on the websites to which they are linked. The information collected through this type of cookies is used to measure the activity of the websites, applications, or platforms and to create user navigation profiles on these sites, applications, and platforms. This is done in order to introduce improvements based on the analysis of the usage data by the users of the service.
  • Advertising cookies: they allow for the most efficient management of advertising spaces.
  • Behavioral advertising cookies: they store information on user behavior obtained through continuous observation of their browsing habits, which allows for the development of a specific profile to display advertising based on it.
  • External social network cookies: they are used to allow visitors to interact with content from different social platforms (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.), and are generated only for users of these social networks. The terms of use for these cookies and the information collected are regulated by the privacy policy of the respective social platform.
