a) Use of Cookies:

Pisomonas’ site uses “Cookies” and other similar tools (hereafter, Cookies). Cookies are notes sent to a browser through a web server to record the activities of a User on a certain site or on all of the pages, apps and services offered by Pisamona’s site (from here on, Services). The main aim of Cookies is to provide the User with quicker access to the selected Services. Furthermore, Cookies personalise the Services offered by the Pisamonas site, providing and offering every User information which might interest them, as a result of the way they use the Services.

Pisamonas’ sites use Cookies to personalise the Users’ navigation experience and make it as smooth as possible. Cookies are associated only with an Anonymous User and their computer and they do not provide any references that the User’s personal details to be deduced. The User can configure their browser to notify them of and reject the installation of Cookies sent by the Pisamonas site, without affecting their ability to access the site’s Content. However, it should be noted that the quality of the operation of the website may be diminished.

Registered Users that sign up or have signed in will benefit from a more personalised service aimed at their profile, thanks to the combination of data stored in the cookies and the personal information enter when they register. These Users are expressly permitting the use of this information with the aforementioned aims, although this does not affect their right to reject or disable the use of Cookies.  

b) Type, aim and operation of Cookies:

Regarding their permanency, Cookies can be divided into session Cookies and permanent Cookies. The first expire when the User closes the browser. The second expire when the objective that they are aimed at is achieved (for example, so that the User can be identified on Pisamonas’ Services) or when they are manually deleted.

Regarding their aims, Cookies can be classified in the following categories:

PERFORMANCE COOKIES: This type of Cookie remembers your preferences for the tools that are part of the Services, which means you do not have to configure the service every time you visit the site. As an example, this type of Cookie includes:

  • The speed of video transmission that is compatible with your browser.
  • The ítems stored in the your ‘shopping basket’.

REGISTRATION COOKIES: Registration Cookies are generated once the User has signed up or, at a later date, have signed in. They are used to identify a User in the Services, with the following aims:

  • To identify the User so that, if they close a Service, browser or computer and come back to said Service another day, they will still be identified, making their experience easier as they do not have to identify themselves again. This feature can be suppressed if the User presses the ‘log out’ button, meaning this Cookie is deleted and the next time they access the Service they will have to log in to be identified.
  • To confirm if the User is authorised to access certain Services, such as participating in a competition.
  • In addition, some Services can use connectors to social networks such as Facebook or Twitter. When the User registers themselves with a Service using their login details from a social network, they authorise the social network to save a permanent Cookie that records their identity and guarantees them access to the Services until it expires. The User can delete this cookie and cancel access to the Services through social media by updating their settings on the social media site in question.

ANALYTICAL COOKIES: Every time a User visits a Service, a tool managed by an external service provider (Google Analytics and similar tools which could be added to this list if they vary from the current models) generates an analytical Cookie on the User’s computer. This Cookie, which is generated only when they visit the site, will help on future occasions when they visit Pisamonas’ Services, identifying them anonymously. The main aims of these Cookies are:

  • To allow for the Anonymous identification of Users accessing the site through the “Cookie” (which identifies browsers and devices, not people), and as a result the approximate calculation of visitor numbers and trends over time.
  • Identify, anonymously, the most visited content and therefore the most attractive content to Users.
  • To find out if the User is a repeat visitor or is visiting the site for the first time.
  • Important: Unless the User decides to sign up for one of Pisamonas’ Services, the “Cookie” will never be linked to any personal information that could identify them. Said Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes which will help with the optimisation of the User experience on the site.

ADVERTISING COOKIES: This type of “Cookies” allows us to widen the range of advertisements shown to each anonymous User of Pisamonas’ Services. Amongst other things, the length of view and frequency of view of publicity posts and engagement with these posts, as well as patterns of User navigation and/or use that help to build up a picture of interests and let us Pisamonas offer publicity more in line with this.

THIRD-PARTY ADVERTISING COOKIES: As well as advertising managed by the Pisamonas site and its Services, the site offers advertisers a chance to share their adverts through third parties (Ad-Servers). In this way, these third parties can store Cookies sent by Pisamonas’ Services that come from the browsers of Users, as well as access the data they hold.

The companies that generate these Cookies have their own privacy policies.
