REGISTRATION COOKIES: Registration Cookies are generated once the User has registered or subsequently opened his session, and are used to identify him in the Services with the following objectives:



    • Keep the User identified so that, if he closes a Service, the browser or the computer and at another time or another day re-enters said Service, he will continue to be identified, thus facilitating his navigation without having to identify himself again. This functionality can be suppressed if the User clicks on the “close session” functionality, so that this Cookie is deleted and the next time the User enters the Service, the User will have to log in to be identified.


    • Check if the User is authorized to access certain Services, for example, to participate in a contest.


    • Additionally, some Services may use connectors with social networks such as Facebook or Twitter.

    • ANALYTICAL COOKIES: Every time a User visits a Service, a tool from an external provider (Omniture, Comscore and the like that can be added to this list in case they vary in relation to the current ones) generates an analytical Cookie on the computer of the User. This Cookie, which is only generated during the visit, will serve in future visits to identify the visitor anonymously. The main objectives pursued are:


    • Allow the anonymous identification of the Navigating Users through the "Cookie" (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate accounting of the number of visitors and their trend over time.
