This website ZARC4ENDO, S.A. uses “cookies” and other similar mechanisms (hereinafter, cookies).
Cookies are files sent to a browser through a website server to record the user’s activities on a specific website (hereinafter, services). The first purpose of cookies is to provide the user with faster access to the selected services. In addition, cookies personalize the services, facilitating and offering users information that is of particular interest to them or that may be of interest them, based on their use of the services.
Cookies are used to personalize and facilitate the user’s navigation as much as possible. Cookies are associated solely with an anonymous user and computer and do not provide information that enables the user’s personal data to be discovered. The user may configure their browser to notify and reject the installation of the cookies sent, without affecting the user’s ability to access the contents. However, please note that, in any case, the quality of the website’s functioning may decrease.
- b) Cookie types, purposes and functions:
Depending on how long they last, cookies can be classified as session cookies or permanent cookies. Session cookies expire when the user closes the browser. Permanent cookies expire based on when they achieve their purpose, or when they are manually deleted.
Additionally, depending on their purpose, cookies can be categorized as follows:
This type of cookie remembers a user’s preferences for tools within the services, making it unnecessary to reconfigure the services every time a user visits. To give some examples, this type of cookie includes:
- volume settings for video or sound players
- video transmission speeds that are compatible with the browser being used
- the objects saved in a “shopping cart” in E-commerce Services, such as shops
These cookies are used to identify which country the user is in when they request a service. This cookie is completely anonymous and is used only to help orient the contents to the location.
Registration cookies are generated once the user has registered or when they have logged in for a session, and they are used for identification in the services, for the following purposes:
To keep the user logged in. This way, if the services, browser or computer are closed, and then the user returns to the services later or on a different day, they will be recognized. This makes browsing easier since users do not have to log in again. This functionality can be stopped if the user clicks on “End session”, which causes this cookie to be deleted. In that situation, the next time they go into the services, the user will have to log in again to be identified.
To check if the user is allowed access to certain services.
Additionally, some services may use connectors to social networks, like Facebook and Twitter. When the user registers for a service using social network credentials, they authorize the social network to save a permanent cookie, which remembers their identity and guarantees them access to the services until it expires. The user can delete this cookie and withdraw access to the services through social networks by updating their preferences on the specified social network.
Every time a user visits a service, a tool belonging to a third-party provider (Prestashop, etc.) generates an analytics cookie on the user’s computer. This cookie, which is only generated during the visit, will be used during future visits to the services to anonymously identify the visitor. The main purposes for doing this are:
To enable anonymous identification of users browsing the website, through the cookie (it identifies browsers and devices, not people), and, consequently, obtain an estimation of the number of visitors and their use trends over time.
Anonymously identify the most-visited contents and, therefore, the ones that are the most attractive for users
To know whether the user of the website is a new or repeat visitor.
Important: unless the user decides to register for the services, the cookie will never be associated to any data of a personal nature that could be used to identify them. These cookies will be used only for statistical purposes, to help optimize the user’s experience of the website.
