What are cookies and what are they used for?
Cookies are files which are downloaded to the user's computer/Smartphone/tablet when they access certain web pages.
Cookies allow certain data concerning the user's device or browsing behaviour to be stored. This data may be updated or recovered by the person responsible for their installation for different reasons, such as obtaining information about the browsing habits of the user or their equipment, viewing which web pages they have visited, the connection time, the city to which the IP address they are accessing the website from is assigned, the number of new users, the frequency and recurrence of visits, the time of the visit, the browser, operator or type of terminal the visit is being made from, analysing the operation of a web page, detecting technical problems, and so on. Moreover, depending on the information they contain and the way in which the terminal is used, they may be used to recognise the User.
As well as "traditional" cookies, there are other mechanisms and technologies to store this type of information. This website, through its own domain or authorised third parties from their own domains, may use tracking pixels or web beacons, fingerprinting or local and browser session storage to store information, which generally relates to the user's browsing and is always hashed. We recommend checking your browser settings to limit or prevent these techniques, if you wish.
What types of cookies are there?
Cookies can be sorted into three categories:
1. by the entity managing the team or domain from where the cookies are sent and the data processed:
a) first-party: cookies sent to the user's device from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself, from which the service requested by the user is provided.
b) third-party: cookies sent to the user's device from a computer or domain that is not managed by the publisher, but rather by another entity which processes the data collected through cookies.
2. by the period of time they remain active on the device:
a) session: these cookies are designed to collect and store data while the user is accessing a web page. These are usually used to store information which only needs to be retained to provide the service requested by the user on a specific occasion (for example: a list of products acquired).
b) persistent: a type of cookie in which the data is stored on the server and can be accessed and processed for a set period by the entity responsible for the cookie. This may last for a few minutes or up to several years.
3. by the purpose for which the data collected is processed:
a) technical: cookies that allow users to browse through a web page, platform or application and use the different options or services it provides, such as controlling the traffic and communication of data, identifying a session, accessing restricted sections, recording the elements that constitute an order, placing an order, applying to register for or participate in an event, using security elements during browsing, storing content to share videos or sound or sharing content via social media.
b) personalisation: cookies that allow the user to access the service in accordance with some general, pre-defined characteristics through a series of criteria on the user's device. For example: the language, the type of browser through which they are accessing the service, the local settings through which they are accessing the service, etc.
c) analysis: cookies that allow the entity responsible for these cookies to track and analyse users' behaviour on the websites to which they are linked. The information collected through this type of cookie is used to measure the activities of websites, applications or platforms and to create browser profiles for the users of said sites, applications and platforms, with the intention of improving the analysis of usage data relating to service users. With regard to the processing of data collected through analysis cookies, the Article 29 Working Party has stated that despite the fact that these are not exempt from the requirement to obtain informed consent to their use, it is unlikely that these cookies represent a risk to users' privacy, as long as they process first-party cookies, process aggregated data for strictly statistical purposes, provide information about their use and include the option for users to refuse to consent to their use.
d) marketing: these cookies allow, in the most effective way possible, the management of advertisements which, if applicable, the publisher has included on a web page, application or platform from which the requested service is provided, based on criteria such as the published content or how frequently these advertisements are shown.
e) behavioural marketing: these cookies allow, in the most effective way possible, the management of advertisements which, if applicable, the publisher has included on a web page, application or platform from which the requested service is provided. These cookies store information relating to users' behaviour, obtained through continuous observation of their browsing habits. This allows a specific profile to be created to show them advertising based on the same.
Why is your consent important?
In accordance with Law 34/2002 of 11 July, on Information Society Services and Electronic Commerce, Montepino may install cookies in users' terminals provided that said users have given their consent and after they have provided clear and complete information regarding their use. The objective of this Policy is to provide said information in a useful format for the User.
However, it should be noted that not all cookies are considered equal from the legal perspective. Some cookies, as they are not considered intrusive, are exempt from the obligation to be declared. These cookies enable communication between the user's equipment and the network, as do those which solely provide a service expressly requested by the user, such as:
- User-input cookies.
- User authentication or identification cookies (session only).
- User-centric security cookies.
- Multimedia content player session cookies.
- Load-balancing session cookies.
- User-interface customisation cookies.
- Third-party social plug-in content-sharing cookies.

Session cookies: a session cookie contains information that is stored in a temporary memory location and then subsequently deleted after the session is completed or the web browser is closed.

Third part cookies: Analytical cookies allow us to recognize and to count the number of visitors to our website, to see how visitors move around the website when they are using it and to record which content viewers view and are interested in. This helps us to determine how frequently particular pages and advertisements are visited and to determine the most popular areas of our website. This helps us to improve the service which we offer to you by helping us make sure our users are finding the information they are looking for, by providing anonymized demographic data to third parties in order to target advertising more appropriately to you, and by tracking the success of advertising campaigns on our website. You can visualize these cookies inspecting in your browser as:
- _ga: with a duration of 2 years, used exclusively to distinguish users.
- _gid: with a duration of 24 hours, used exclusively to distinguish users too.
- _gat: used to throttle request rate, which means that it limits the collection of data on high traffic sites.
How do I manage cookies?
The user recognises that they have the ability to accept or reject the processing of their data or information in the ways and for the purposes mentioned above, by applying the desired settings in their Internet browser. Browser settings may vary depending on the developer and version, and therefore to manage cookies, they will need to check the relevant settings within their browser.
Most browsers state which browser settings to implement to prevent the acceptance of cookies, to set up notifications every time you receive a new cookie or to deactivate cookies altogether. To control how you would like your information to be used, you can change your browser settings in the manner most convenient for you.
In any event, we must inform you that if you deactivate technical and/or operational cookies, the quality of the website may diminish or it may be more difficult to identify you.

What responsibilities do we assume?
The information collected by cookies is stored in the user's browser. However, in technical terms, it cannot be guaranteed that 100% of a user's specific settings regarding the acceptance of cookies will be met. Third-party cookie settings are beyond Montepino's control, as they are programmed through web plug-ins which we are unable to operate.
The only way to fully guarantee your choices are met is to configure your browser settings in accordance with your preferences as the user.
In some cases, cookies need to be installed to ensure that your browser does not forget your decision not to accept cookies.
