Session cookies and persistent cookies
Cookies are also characterised as either “session” or “persistent”. Once downloaded, the former are erased when the browser is closed, whereas the latter are stored on the user’s hard disk until they expire. Persistent cookies are used principally to facilitate site navigation, to understand which sections of the site have generated a certain number of pages and users, and also for the distribution of advertisements.
The session cookies we use are intended to speed up the analysis of Internet activity and provide users with access to the services offered by the site; with these cookies, personal data are not transmitted or acquired, and visitor tracking systems are not used. Session cookies are principally used during the authentication, authorisation and navigation processes of the services accessed by means of registration.

The data collected may be stored either electronically or on paper, and will be processed in accordance with all the provisions of the law regarding the protection of the rights of the parties concerned.
Data are processed for the period necessary for the purposes cited above. You may request that we stop processing, erase or restrict your personal data at any point.
