The website https://www.eeres4water.eu uses own and third-party cookies in order to gather information that helps to optimise your visit to its pages. Cookies will not be used to collect personal information. You may permit or reject their use and change your configuration whenever you like.

 

Cookies Policy

In EERES4WATER we comply with the provisions of the Information Society Services Act, a standard that has included the transposition of Directive 2009/136/EC.

The desktop version of the domainhttps://www.eeres4water.eu (hereinafter The Web Site) uses a technology called “cookies” in order to collect information about use of the website.

Cookies are used to facilitate your browsing, to distinguish between different users and to identify problems in order to improve our website. Furthermore, if you give your consent, we will use cookies that make it possible to obtain information about your preferences and personalise the page in accordance with your individual interests.

The purpose of the present Cookies Policy is to inform you about the cookies we use on our website in a clear and precise manner. If you need more information, send us an email at info@corporaciontecnologica.com

What are cookies?

Cookies are files that are stored on the computer of a user that browses the Internet and that, in particular, contain a number that uniquely identifies the user’s computer, even if it changes location or IP address.

Cookies are installed during Internet browsing, either by the websites visited by the user or by third parties with which the Website relates, and, among other functions, they enable a website to store and recover information on a user’s or a computer’s browsing habits. Depending on the information obtained, they may be used to identify users.

Types of cookies

Depending on the organisation managing the domain which sends cookies and handles the data gathered, cookies can be divided into two categories:

  • Own cookies: those which are sent to the user’s device from a system or domain managed by the editor itself and from which the service requested by the service is rendered.
  • Third-party cookies: those which are sent to the user’s device from a system or domain not managed by the editor, but rather another entity that processes data obtained via cookies.

In the event that cookies are installed from a computer or domain managed by the editor itself, but the information collected through them is managed by a third party, they may not be considered as own cookies.

Cookies may also be categorised according to the time period during which they remain stored in the client’s browser, being either:

  • Session cookies: those designed to gather and store data while the user accesses a web page. They are typically used to store information, the sole interest of which is to render the service requested by the user on only one occasion (e.g. a list of products acquired).
  • Persistent cookies: those in which data is stored on the device and may be accessed and processed during a specific period of time, which may be minutes or years, by the controller of the cookie.

Lastly, another classification exists with five types of cookies depending on the purpose for which the data obtained is used:

  • Technical cookies: those that allow the user to browse through a web page, platform or application and use the different options or services that exist there, such as, for example, monitor traffic and data communication, identify the session, access restricted areas of the website, record the items in an order, complete the purchasing process of an order, register to participate in an event, use security features while browsing or store content to play video or sound or share content through social networks.
  • Personalisation cookies: those that allow the user to access the service with some user-defined general features on the device according to a series of criteria in the user’s device, for example the language, type of browser through which they access the service, the regional configuration from where they access the service, etc.
  • Analytical cookies: enable the controller of the same to monitor and analyse the behaviour of users of the websites to which they are linked. The information collected by this type of cookies is used to measure activity on a website, application or platform and to create browsing profiles of their users, in order to improve the service based on analysis of their users’ usage data.
  • Advertising cookies: enable the most efficient management of advertising spaces.
  • Behavioural Advertising cookies: store information on the users’ behaviour obtained by means of continuously observing their browsing habits, which makes it possible to develop a specific profile in order to show advertising depending on the same.
  • Cookies from external social networks: are used to enable users to interact with content from different social media platforms (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.) and which are generated solely for users of said social networks. The conditions of the use of these cookies and the information they collect are governed by the privacy policy of the corresponding social media platform.
