Cookies Policy

PRELIMINARY INFORMATION ABOUT COOKIES FOR THE CUSTOMER

Regulations on cookies (amendment to the Law 34/2002, of 11th July, on Information Society Services and Electronic Commerce (LSSICE) through the General Telecommunications Law) lays the Organization under a series of obligations with regard to informing users and getting their consent in relation to the use of Cookies, text files which get stored in the user’s computer or terminal while browsing websites, collecting information on the user’s browsing habits and making it available to the website owners.

It is necessary to inform users and get their express consent for all those cookies not exempt from this requirement. Among these non-exempt cookies, a special note should be made of the following:

It is necessary to inform users and get their express consent for all those cookies not exempt from this requirement. Among these non-exempt cookies, a special note should be made of the following:

  • Cookies used to carry out usage analysis, measuring, or third-party advertising from the site. The typical example is Google Adwords.
  • The use of an application by a third-party company in order to carry out the website usage analysis or for any other purpose. This other company may be processing the data collected not only to render the service to the Organization, but also to improve their own services. An example of these services is seen in retargeting[1].

[1] Retargeting is a form of online advertising for online shops (behavioral remarketing). The distinctive feature lies on the fact that it targets users who have visited a webpage and hired no service or product, encouraging them to return by using targeted advertising on the pages visited later.

HOW TO INFORM AND GET THE CONSENT?

The most appropriate system to inform users about the existence of cookies will be through a layer system:

 

In a first layer, general information will be given on the existence of this computing device. This may be done by means of a banner which should always remain visible on screen, until the user either accepts or closes the banner.

 

The logs which certify the consent (banner acceptance) must be retained. In particular, IP, and acceptance date and time.

 

In a second layer, which is accessed via link or hyperlink from the first one, further more detailed information on cookies will be given. It should mainly contain what is known as the Cookies Policy.

 

The information provided to users must show in detail the types of cookies used by the website and the purposes of their use. It is not necessary to inform individually about the name of each and every one of the cookies. They can be referred to in groups, as long as they are identifiable, there is no ambiguity and it is specified in any case whether they belong to the site owners or to third parties (Legal Report by the Spanish Data Protection Agency 0196/2014)

 An example of legal notice in reference to the first layer (banner) is proposed hereunder, in the event that third-party cookies are used on the website:

CENTRE DE NEGOCIS TGN, S.L. uses own and third-party cookies to provide you with better browsing services by analyzing your browsing habits on our website.

If you continue to browse this website, we assume that you agree to their use. To change its settings or obtain more information, please see our Cookies Policy.   Continue

 

An example of Cookies Policy in reference to the second layer is proposed hereunder. This should be adapted to the webpage.
