What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are received in the terminal from the website that is visited and are used to record certain browsing interactions on a website, storing data that can be updated and retrieved. These files are stored on the User's computer and contain anonymous data that is not harmful to the User’s equipment. They are used to remember user preferences, such as the selected language, access data or personalisation of the web page. They are covered in Article 22 of Law 34/2002 on Services of the Information Society and Electronic Commerce.
Cookies can also be used to record anonymous information about how a visitor uses a site. For example, indicating from which website you have gained access to it, or if you have used an advertising “banner” to get there.
Our sites may also have links from other external websites. SANHIGIA, S.L. does not control the cookies used by these external websites.
For more information about cookies from social networks or other third-party websites, we recommend reviewing your own cookie policies.
What is the purpose for using the different types of cookies?
Technical cookies: Technical cookies are those that are essential and strictly necessary for the proper functioning of a website and the use of the different options and services it offers. For example, those that serve to maintain the session, manage response time, performance or validation of options, use security elements, share content with social networks, etc.
Personalisation cookies: These cookies allow the user to specify or personalise some characteristics of the general options of the website, for example, to set the language, regional configuration or type of browser.
Analysis cookies: Analytical cookies are those used by our website, to prepare browsing profiles and to know the user preferences of these profiles, in order to improve the services offered.
Publicity cookies: Publicity cookies allow the management of advertising spaces based on specific criteria. For example, the frequency of access, the edited content, etc.
Advertising cookies: By means of managing the advertising, advertising cookies allow behavioural information to be stored by observing habits, studying the access and forming a profile of user preferences, in order to offer advertising that is related to the interests of their profile.
Depending on the time they remain activated, we can differentiate between:
Session cookies: They are a type of cookie designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a website.
Persistent cookies: They are a type of cookie, in which the data is still stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed during a period defined by the person responsible for the cookie, and which can range from a few minutes to several years.
And finally, dealing with the entity that manages them, we can distinguish between:
Own cookies: They are cookies that are sent to the User's terminal from a computer or domain managed by the publisher themselves and from which the service requested by the User is provided.
Third-party cookies: They are cookies that are sent to the User's terminal from a computer or domain that is not managed by the publisher themselves, but rather by another entity that processes the data obtained through cookies.
What if I do not want to have these cookies or I don't do anything about them?
To comply with current legislation, we have to ask for your permission to manage cookies. If you decide not to authorise the processing by indicating your non-compliance, we would only use technical cookies, as they are essential to enable you to browse our website. In this case, we would not store any cookies. In the case of continuing to browse our website without denying the authorisation for cookies, it implies that you accept their use.
If you still decide to modify the configuration of your access to the website, you should know that it is possible to delete cookies or prevent this information from being recorded on your computer at any time by modifying the parameters of your browser settings:
Cookie settings in Internet Explorer.
Cookie settings in Firefox.
Cookie settings in Google Chrome.
Cookie settings in Safari.
These browsers are subject to updates or modifications, so we cannot guarantee that they fully comply with the version of your browser. It may also be that you use another browser not covered by these links, such as Konqueror, Arora, Flock, etc. To avoid these misadjustments, you can directly access the browser settings from the “Options” menu in the browser and then the “Privacy” menu. (Please refer to your browser's “Help” option for more information.)
So, what does the information above mean?
If you accept our cookies, it allows us to improve the websites of SANHIGIA, S.L., so that we can offer you optimal access and give you a more efficient and personalised service. Furthermore, you can configure your browser to establish that only trusted websites or the pages you are currently browsing can manage cookies, allowing you to select your preferences.
