Cookies are small data files that are stored in your device when you browse websites. These files record information that identify the user and profile, making it easier to customize a website for a particular user and help a user navigate the website, by storing the his/her preferences based on previous visits.  
Because cookies are stored in computers and devices to register such information for use in the future, sometimes they are interpreted as elements that affect the user's privacy.
However, some cookies are essential to allow certain functions on websites. Data collection through cookies takes place on a voluntary basis, and you can accept our conditions or not. 
Certain cookies may be required for the correct performance of our platforms and services, and these will be duly informed to you.
There are several types of cookies on our platforms.
Cookies can be classified as:
