We want to inform you about how we treat your personal data through cookies or other similar technologies.
WHAT ARE COOKIES AND WHAT ARE THEY FOR?
Cookies are small text files that are stored on the device through which you access a website, more specifically, through the browser used for this purpose, and that collect information regarding your browsing on that site.
Cookies have the main function of facilitating and customizing your browsing experience, but, not being the only reason for their use, will also serve other purposes, namely, assist us in preventing fraud, optimizing our services, and identifying your preferences so that we can show you advertisements and offers tailored to your interests.
WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED THROUGH COOKIES?
Cookies and other similar technologies collect:
- Traffic and location information,such as your IP address (Internet Protoloco Address), your location captured through a Global Positioning System (or GPS system), wi-fi access points and mobile network antennas covered by your device;
- Access and session information, thatis, the number generated to identify you as a user in the session on a given site (Session ID), the login date, and the most searched words;
- Information about the device,for example, by identifying the operating system and browser used, the date and duration of the visit to the website, and the identification of other websites visited;
- Information on user behavior,such as the number of clicks made and the most visited pages.
TYPES OF COOKIES COLLECTED
There are session cookies (temporary) and persistent (long-term) cookies.
The first are used only for the period in which you browse a particular site, after which they are deleted, and allow you to maintain your browsing on that site, without having to re-log in, even if you change the page; The seconds are stored on your device, even after the end of navigation on the site, and aim to enable you to return to that site without the settings initially set by you, such as the language, change in this new navigation.
Cookies can also be categorized according to the various purposes associated with them, regardless of whether they are their own cookies (cookies installed by the website you are visiting) or third-party cookies (cookies installed by websites other than the one you are browsing).
So we can have, for example:
- Required Cookies: These cookies are always used, regardless of your consent, as they are strictly necessary for the regular operation of the website. The necessary cookies are intended to ensure operability, optimisation and security issues and are, as a rule, persistent cookies.
- Cookies Preference: This type of cookies saves user preference settings, such as language, so you don’t have to set them every time you browse the site; identify the user through a unique identification number (ID), associated with the login time, allowing them to browse the site or other open web pages in the browser without having to log in constantly; and allow to count the number of visits to the site, through the collection of users’ IP, thus enabling statistical studies on the quality of the service made available on that site. By their nature, these cookies may be temporary, although they tend to be persistent.
- Analytical/Statistical Cookies: These cookies allow quantifying the number of users of a website and analyzing its behavior, in order to define strategies to improve the service provided. As a general rule, they are third-party cookies.
- Advertising/Marketing Cookies: This type of cookies is intended to collect information about the use made of the website (e.g., clicks made and most viewed ads), allowing you to identify the user’s preferences so that the advertising directed to you meets your interests. They are mostly persistent cookies.
