What are cookies?
Cookies are a set of data that a server deposits in the user's browser to collect standard Internet log information and information on the behaviour of visitors to a website. In other words, they are small text files that are stored on the computer's hard drive and are used to identify the user when he/she logs on to the website again. Their purpose is to record the user's visit and to store certain information. Their use is common and frequent on the web as they allow pages to function more efficiently and achieve greater personalisation and analysis of user behaviour.
What types of cookies are there?
The cookies used on our website are session and third-party cookies, and allow us to store and access information relating to language, the type of browser used, and other general characteristics predefined by the user, as well as to monitor and analyse the activity carried out, in order to introduce improvements and provide our services in a more efficient and personalised manner.
Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into session or permanent cookies. Those that expire when the user closes the browser.

In addition, depending on their purpose, cookies can be classified as follows:
This type of Cookie remembers your preferences for the tools found in the services, so you do not have to reconfigure the service each time you visit. By way of example, this type of cookie includes: Volume settings for video or sound players. Video streaming speeds that are compatible with your browser. Items saved in the "shopping cart" in e-commerce services such as shops.
These cookies are used to find out what country you are in when you request a service. This cookie is completely anonymous, and is only used to help target content to your location.
Registration cookies are generated once the user has registered or subsequently logged in, and are used to identify the user in the services with the following objectives:
To keep the user identified so that, if you close a service, the browser or the computer and at another time or another day re-enter said service, you will continue to be identified, thus facilitating your browsing without having to identify yourself again. This functionality can be deleted if the user clicks on the [close session] functionality, so that this cookie is deleted and the next time the user enters the service he/she will have to log in to be identified.
Check if the user is authorised to access certain services, for example, to participate in a competition.
Additionally, some services may use connectors with social networks such as Facebook or Twitter. When the user registers for a service with credentials from a social network, he/she authorises the social network to store a persistent Cookie that remembers his/her identity and grants access to the services until it expires. The user can delete this Cookie and revoke access to the services through social networks by updating their preferences on the specific social network.
Each time a user visits a service, a tool from an external supplier generates an analytical cookie on the user's computer. This cookie, which is only generated during the visit, will be used in future visits to the City Council services to anonymously identify the visitor. The main objectives pursued are:
To allow the anonymous identification of browsing users through the cookie (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate counting of the number of visitors and their trend over time.
Identify anonymously the most visited content and therefore more attractive to users Know if the user is accessing is new or repeat visit.
Important: Unless the user decides to register for a City Council service, the cookie will never be associated with any personal data that can identify the user. These cookies will only be used for statistical purposes to help optimise the user's experience on the site.
This type of cookies allow to extend the information of the advertisements shown to each anonymous user in the services of the City Council. Among other things, they store the duration or frequency of display of advertising positions, interaction with them, or browsing patterns and/or user behaviour, as they help to create a profile of advertising interest. In this way, they make it possible to offer advertising related to the user's interests.
