PRISA GROUP websites use ¨Cookies¨, and other similar mechanisms ("Cookies"). Cookies are files sent by a browser through a web server to register Users' activities on a certain website or on all websites, apps and/or services of GRUPO PRISA websites (herein, the Services). The main purpose of Cookies is to give users faster access to selected Services. Cookie's also personalise the Services offered by GRUPO PRISA websites, providing and offering you information that you are interested in or which you may be interested in, according to the use you make of the Services.
Registered users who register or start a session may benefit from more personalised services adapted to their profile, thanks to the combination of data stored in the cookies with the personal data used when registering. Such Users expressly authorise the use of this information for the purposes indicated, notwithstanding their right to reject or disable cookies.
Likewise, the GRUPO PRISA websites will detect all the GRUPO PRISA Services you have requested, so that they can provide or offer suitable information for each User's tastes and preferences.
PRISA GROUP websites use Web Bugs, objects that are embedded in a web page or email and are usually invisible to the user. When the User opens the email, this image is downloaded along with the rest of the content of the email so that the sender knows if a specific email has been opened or not, as well as the IP address where it was downloaded. PRISA GROUP websites use this information to obtain statistics and can make analytical studies of the emails sent to the Users.
Cookies, according to how long they last, can be divided into "session cookies" and "persistent cookies". Session cookies are temporary cookies that remain on your device until you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your device for much longer (for example, so that the User continues to be identified in the PRISA Group Services) or until you manually delete it.
Additionally, according to its purpose, Cookies may be classified as follows:
In addition, some Services can use connectors with social networks such as Facebook or Twitter. When the User registers in a service with credentials from a social network, it authorises the social network to store a Persistent Cookie that remembers your identity and guarantees access to the Services until it expires. Users can delete this Cookie and revoke access to the Services through social networks by updating their preferences on the specific social network.
The companies that generate these Cookies have their own privacy policies. PRISA GROUP websites currently use the Doubleclick (Google) platform to manage these services.
It is normally possible to reject cookies from the browser, or to refuse to accept Cookies from a particular Service.
All modern browsers allow users to change their Cookie settings. These settings are normally available in the 'options' or 'Preferences' in your browser menu. You may also set your browser or email manager, or install free apps to prevent Web Bugs from downloading when you open an email.
PRISA GROUP websites offer Users instructions on the steps to access the cookie settings menu and, if any, private browsing in each of the main browsers:
Some functions of the Services are disabled such as, for example, staying logged in, storing shopping in the "shopping cart" in the e-commerce service, receive information aimed to localise or visualise some videos.
PRISA GROUP websites may make changes to this Cookies Policy according to legal or regulatory requirements, in order to adapt the policy to the instructions issued by the Spanish Data Protection Agency. Users are therefore advised to make regular visits.
