2. What type of cookies are used on the Machabal Carpinteria websites?
Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into session or permanent cookies. The first ones expire when the User closes the browser. The second ones expire depending on when the objective for which they serve is fulfilled (for example, so that the User remains identified on the Machabal Carpinteria websites) or when they are manually deleted.
Additionally, depending on their objective, Cookies can be classified as follows:
PERFORMANCE COOKIES: This type of Cookie remembers your preferences for the tools found in the Services, so you do not have to reconfigure the service each time you visit it. As an example, this typology includes:
Volume settings for video or sound players. The video transmission speeds that are compatible with your browser.
GEO-LOCATION COOKIES: These Cookies are used to find out which country you are in when you request a Service. This Cookie is completely anonymous, and is only used to help guide the content to your location.
REGISTRATION COOKIES: Registration Cookies are generated once the User has registered or subsequently opened your session, and are used to identify you in the Services with the following objectives:
Keep the User identified in such a way that, if you close a Service, the browser or the computer and at another time or another day you re-enter said Service, you will continue to be identified, thus facilitating your browsing without having to re-identify yourself. This functionality can be suppressed if you press the “disconnect” or “close session” functionality, so that this Cookie is eliminated and the next time you enter the Service, the User will have to log in to be identified.
Check if the User is authorized to access certain Services, for example, to participate in a contest.
Additionally, some Services may use connectors with social networks such as Facebook or Twitter. When the User registers in a Service with credentials of a social network, she authorizes the social network to save a persistent Cookie that remembers the identity and guarantees access to the Services until it expires. The User may delete this Cookie and revoke access to the Services through social networks by updating the preferences in the specified social network.
ANALYTICAL COOKIES: Each time a User visits a Service, a tool from an external provider (Google Analytics and similar that may be added to this list if they vary in relation to the current ones) generates a Analytical cookie on the User’s computer. This Cookie that is only generated during the visit, will be used in future visits to the Machabal Carpinteria Services to anonymously identify the visitor. The main objectives pursued are:
Allow anonymous identification of browsing Users through the “Cookie” (identifying browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate count of the number of visitors and the trend over time.
Anonymously identify the most visited content and therefore the most attractive for Users
Know if the User who is accessing is new or repeats visit.
Important: Unless the User decides to register on a Machabal Carpinteria website, the “Cookie” will never be associated with any personal data that can identify them. These Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that help to optimize the User’s experience on the site.
