WHAT ARE COOKIES?

The website alasature.com (hereinafter the Website) uses Cookies. Cookies are files sent to a browser through a web server to record the User's activities on a specific website. The first purpose of Cookies is to provide the user with faster access to the selected services. In addition, Cookies personalize the services offered by the Web, facilitating and offering each user information that is of interest or that may be of interest to them, based on the use they make of the Services. 

The Web uses Cookies to personalize and facilitate user navigation as much as possible. Cookies are only associated with an anonymous user and their computer and do not provide references that allow the user's personal data to be deduced. The user may configure their browser to notify and reject the installation of Cookies sent by the Web, without this affecting the user's ability to access the contents of said website. However, we point out that, in any case, the quality of operation of the Web may decrease.

Registered users, who register or who have logged in, will be able to benefit from more personalized services oriented to their profile, thanks to the combination of the data stored in the cookies with the personal data used at the time of registration. These users expressly authorize the use of this information for the indicated purpose, without prejudice to their right to reject or disable the use of cookies.

Likewise, the Web will be able to know all the services requested by the users, so that they will be able to facilitate or offer adequate information to the tastes and preferences of each user.

What types of cookies are there?

Cookies, depending on their permanence , can be divided into: 

  • Session cookies ": The first ones expire when the user closes the browser.
  • "Persistent cookies ". The second ones expire depending on when the purpose for which they serve is fulfilled (for example, so that the user remains identified in the Services) or when they are manually deleted.

Additionally, depending on their Objective , Cookies can be classified as follows: 

  • Performance Cookies This type of Cookie remembers your preferences for the tools found in the services, so you do not have to reconfigure the service each time you visit. As an example, this typology includes:  
  • Volume settings for video or sound players.
  • The video transmission speeds that are compatible with your browser.
  • Cookies geo-location These cookies are used to determine which country is when a service is requested. This Cookie is completely anonymous, and is only used to help guide the content to your location.  
  • Registration Cookies : Registration Cookies are generated once the user has registered or subsequently opened their session, and they are used to identify them in the services with the following objectives:  
  • Keep the user identified so that, if they close a service, the browser or the computer and at another time or another day they re-enter said service, they will continue to be identified, thus facilitating their browsing without having to re-identify themselves. This functionality can be suppressed if the user presses the "close session" functionality, so that this Cookie is eliminated and the next time the user enters the service, the user will have to log in to be identified. 
  • Check if the user is authorized to access certain services, for example, to participate in a contest.
  • Analytical Cookies Every time a User visits a service, a tool from an external provider generates an analytical Cookie on the user's computer. This Cookie, which is only generated during the visit, will serve in future visits to the Web Services to anonymously identify the visitor. The main objectives pursued are:   
  • Allow the anonymous identification of browsing users through the " Cookie " (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate count of the number of visitors and their trend over time.
  • Anonymously identify the most visited content and therefore the most attractive to users.
  • Know if the user who is accessing is new or repeats visit.
  • Important: Unless the user decides to register for a Web service the " Cookie " will never be associated with any personal data that can identify them. These Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that help to optimize the User's experience on the site. 
  • Behavioral advertising cookies : This type of " Cookies " allows you to expand the information of the advertisements displayed to each anonymous user in the Web Services Among others, the duration or frequency of viewing advertising positions, the interaction with them, or the user's browsing patterns and / or shares are stored as they help to form a profile of advertising interest. In this way, they allow to offer advertising related to the interests of the user.  
  • Third-party advertising cookies In addition to the advertising managed by the Web in its Services, the Web offers its advertisers the option of serving advertisements through third parties (“AdServers”). In this way, these third parties can store Cookies sent from the Web Services from the Users' browsers, as well as access the data stored in them.
