Welcome to the COOKIES POLICY of the website of HOCASOL, S.A., with Tax Identification Number A38354189, where we will explain in clear and simple language all the necessary questions so that you can have control over them based on your personal decisions.
WHAT ARE COOKIES AND WHAT DO WE USE THEM FOR?
A cookie is a small information file that is stored on your computer, smartphone or tablet every time you visit our website.
In principle, a cookie is harmless: it does not contain viruses, Trojans, worms, etc. that could damage your terminal, but it does have a certain impact on your right to the protection of your personal data, as it collects certain information concerning you (browsing habits, identity, preferences, etc.).
That is why, based on the provisions of the applicable legislation (LSSI and current legislation on personal data protection), the activation of certain types of cookies will require your prior authorisation.
With a step as simple and quick as ticking a box in our COOKIES CONFIGURATION section, you can give your authorisation for the activation of the cookies you want: take control and enjoy personalised browsing on our website.
Before doing so, we will give you some additional information that will help you to make a better decision:
Cookies can be of various types depending on their purpose:
Technical cookies are necessary for our website to function, they do not require your permission and are the only ones we have enabled by default.
The other cookies can be used to improve our website, to personalise it based on your preferences, or to be able to show you advertising tailored to your searches, tastes and personal interests. All of them are deactivated by default, and your prior authorisation is required for their activation, which you can do by simply ticking a box in our COOKIES CONFIGURATION section.
Some cookies are ours (we will call them our own cookies) and others belong to external companies that provide services for our website (we will call them third-party cookies: an example could be cookies from external providers such as Google). In this regard, it is important for you to know that some of these external suppliers may be located outside Spain.
Globally, not all countries have the same level of data protection, with some countries being more secure than others (for example, the European Union is a secure environment for your data). Our policy is to use reliable providers who, whether or not they are located in the European Union, have adopted appropriate safeguards for the protection of your personal information. However, in the section entitled WHAT TYPES OF COOKIES ARE CURRENTLY USED ON OUR WEBSITE, you can consult the different privacy and data protection policies of each of the aforementioned external suppliers, in order to make an informed decision about whether or not to activate the third-party cookies used by our website.
Finally, we would like to point out that, depending on the length of time they remain active, cookies can be of two types:
Session cookies: these expire automatically when you end your session on your computer, smartphone or tablet. They are usually used to retain the necessary information while a service is provided to you on a single occasion.
Persistent cookies: these remain stored on your computer, smartphone or tablet for a certain period of time, which can vary from a few minutes to several years.
WHAT KIND OF COOKIES CAN WE USE ON OUR WEBSITE?
Technical Cookies: Technical cookies are strictly necessary for our website to work and for you to be able to browse it. This type of cookies are those that, for example, allow us to identify you, give you access to certain restricted parts of the page if necessary, or remember different options or services already selected by you, such as your privacy preferences. For this reason, they are activated by default, and your authorisation is not required. Through your browser settings, you can block or alert you to the presence of this type of cookies, although such blocking will affect the proper functioning of the various features of our website.
Analytics Cookies: Analysis cookies allow us to study how users browse our website in general (for example, which sections of the website are the most visited, which services are most used and whether they work correctly, etc.). Based on statistical information about browsing on our website, we can improve both the functioning of the website itself and the different services it offers. Therefore, these cookies do not have an advertising purpose, but only serve to make our website work better, adapting it to our users in general. By activating them you will contribute to this continuous improvement. You can activate or deactivate these cookies by ticking the corresponding box, as they are deactivated by default.
Functionality and Customisation Cookies: Functionality cookies allow us to remember your preferences in order to customise certain features and general options of our website each time you access it (for example, the language in which the information is presented to you, the sections marked as favourites, your browser type, etc.). Therefore, these types of cookies do not have an advertising purpose, but by activating them you will improve the functionality of the website (for example, by adapting to your type of browser) and customising it based on your preferences (for example, by presenting the information in the language you have chosen on previous occasions), which will contribute to the ease, usability and comfort of our website during your browsing. You can activate or deactivate these cookies by ticking the corresponding box, as they are deactivated by default.
Advertising Cookies: Advertising cookies allow us to manage the advertising spaces included on our website based on criteria such as the content shown or the frequency with which the advertisements are shown. For example, if you have been shown the same advertisement several times on our website, and you have not shown a personal interest by clicking on it, it will not appear again. In short, by activating these cookies, the advertising displayed on our website will be more useful and diverse, and less repetitive. You can activate or deactivate these cookies by ticking the corresponding box, as they are deactivated by default.
Behavioural Advertising Cookies: Behavioural advertising cookies allow us to obtain information based on the observation of your browsing habits and behaviour on the website, in order to be able to show you advertising content that is better suited to your personal tastes and interests. To make it easier for you to understand, we will give you a fictitious example: if your last web searches were related to thriller literature, we would show you advertising about thriller books. Therefore, by activating this type of cookies, the advertising that we show you on our website will not be generic, but will be oriented to your searches, tastes and interests, thus adjusting exclusively to you. You can activate or deactivate these cookies by ticking the corresponding box, as they are deactivated by default.
