General information about cookies

A “cookie” is a small text file that is imperceptibly created on the user’s terminal (PC, smartphone, tablet or any other device) when he/she accesses the Website. Cookies store and recover information about the browsing performed on that equipment.

Cookies allow certain information to be known such as the date and time the user last visited the Website, the design of content that the user selected during his/her last visit, his/her preferences or security elements involved in controlling access to restricted areas.

You can find more information about cookies here.

Users who do not wish to receive cookies or would like to be informed before they are stored on their computer can set up their web browser to do so. Most browsers allow cookies to be managed in three different ways: (i) Cookies are never accepted; (ii) for each cookie, the browser asks the user whether it should be accepted; (iii) Cookies are always accepted.

The browser may also include the possibility of better specifying which cookies should be accepted and which should not. The user may specifically choose one of the following options: (i) reject cookies from certain domains; (ii) reject third-party cookies; accept non-persistent cookies (which are deleted when the browser is closed); (iii) allow the server to create cookies for a different domain. Browsers may also allow users to see and delete cookies individually.

A list of the main cookies used on the Websites of the group to which it belongs Esteve Química:

Session cookies: these are temporary cookies that stay in your browser’s cookie file until you leave the Website, so none are left saved on the user’s hard drive. The information gathered by these cookies is used to analyse traffic patterns on the Website. In the long run, this helps us provide a better experience to improve the Website’s content and help you use it.

Permanent cookies: these cookies are stored on the hard drive and our website detects them on each new visit by the user. A permanent cookie has a set expiry date. The cookie will stop working after that date. These are generally used to facilitate registration services, for example.

Technical cookies: these cookies are strictly necessary for the operation of the Website such as those that are used for correct browsing or to ensure the Website loads effectively.

Third-party cookies: such as those used by social networks or supplementary external content like “Google Maps”.

Analytical cookies: these are cookies used to gather statistical and behavioural data about the user’s activity.
