Cookie Policy

1. What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are generated in the user's computer and that allow us to know their frequency of visits, the most selected contents and security elements that may intervene in controlling access to restricted areas, as well as the display of advertising based on criteria predefined by the HLA GROUP and that are activated by cookies served by that entity or by third parties that provide these services on behalf of the HLA GROUP.


There are generally the following types of cookies:


Two types can be distinguished depending on who is the entity that manages the domain from where the cookies are sent and treats the data that is obtained, i.e.:


  • Own cookies: those that are sent to the user's terminal from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself and from which the service requested by the user is provided.

  • Third-party cookies: those that are sent to the user's terminal from a computer or domain that does not is managed by the publisher, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through cookies.




In the event that cookies are installed from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself, but the information collected through these is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered as own cookies.


There is also a second classification according to the period of time that they remain stored in the client’s browser, i.e.:


  • Session cookies: designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a web page. They are usually used to store information that is only of interest to retain for the provision of the service requested by the user on a single occasion (e.g. a list of products purchased).

  • Persistent cookies: the data remain stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the party responsible for the cookie, and which can range from a few minutes to several years.
