Own Cookies: these are the cookies sent to the user’s terminal from a device or domain managed by the editor and they provide the service requested by the user.

Technical cookies: these enable users to browse the website, platform or application and to use the options or services it offers them, including those which the editor employs to ensure the management and operation of the website and to enable its functions and services, such as monitoring data traffic and communications, identify the session, access restricted areas, record items included in an order, handle payment, warn of fraud in connection with the security service, apply for registration to an event, count visits for invoices for the software licences on which the services run (website, platform or application), use secure elements while browsing, bookmark content for publishing videos or sound files, enable dynamic content (such as animations while loading texts or images) or sharing content with social media. This category also includes, due to their technical nature, cookies that help the advertising spaces to be as effective as possible. The adverts are added by the editor to appear as part of the design or layout of the service offered to the user on the website, application or platform, based on criteria such as taking the edited content and customising the adverts and other content, to make it more personal but not to gather information about users for other purposes.
