TYPES OF COOKIES:

For more information on the types of cookies and their usage, please note that:

From the point of view of the ‘lifespan’ of a cookie (how long a cookie remains active on our system) we can classify cookies as:

  • Session cookies: temporary cookies that remain in your browser’s cookie file until you leave the website, so none of them will be saved onto the user’s hard disk. Information obtained through these cookies will be used to analyse website traffic patterns. Ultimately, this allows us to provide a better experience, improving the content and making the site more user-friendly.
  • Permanent cookies: stored on the hard disk and our website reads them each time you visit it again. Each permanent cookie has a particular expiration date. The cookie will cease to function after this date. We generally use them to make purchasing and sign-up services easier.

From the point of view of the usage of each cookie,we can classify them as:

  • Necessary Cookies: cookies that are strictly necessary, such as those that are used to ensure browsing functions correctly, those that allow the user to make payments for goods or services, or cookies that are used to ensure that website content loads efficiently.

Within the category of ‘necessary cookies’ are cookies you will also find for following purposes:

  • Permitting communication only between the user’s equipment and the network.
  • Strictly providing a service explicitly requested by the user.

In these two cases please note that neither informing the user nor gaining their consent is required in order to install the necessary cookies.

  • “User input” cookies
  • Authentication cookies or those that identify the user, only for the duration of the session
  • User centric security cookies
  • Multimedia content player session cookies
  • Load balancing session cookies
  • User interface customisation cookies
  • Complementary cookies (plug-in) for exchanging social content

For all other Necessary Cookies not included in the previous list it is assumed that the user will need to be informed first and their consent obtained.

  • Functional cookies: cookies that improve the user’s browsing experience on the website. An example of the usage of this type of cookie is when they are used for storing browsing information in a particular language.
  • Analytical cookies: cookies that allow us to analyse the use of our Website, enabling us to measure usage and make the site function more efficiently.
  • Marketing and third-party cookies: cookies used by social networks, or by external plugins from content such as Google Maps, as well as cookies from marketing companies so they can target advertising to your particular interests.
  • MULTIÓPTICAS, S.C.L. stores all the information gathered through the use of cookies in an impersonal format (IP address). This type of information obtained through the use of cookies will not be revealed outside MULTIÓPTICAS, S.C.L., nor used for unsolicited communication.
