Usually cookies are only associated with a code (ID) that identifies the device and the browser used in each visit, so they do not necessarily provide references that allow other personal data of the user to be deduced.
The user could set up their browser to notify and reject the installation of cookies sent by cobiosa.com, without damaging the user's ability to access the contents. However, we note that, in such a case, the performance of the services could decrease.
2. Type, purpose and operation of Cookies
Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into session or permanent cookies. The first expire when the user closes the browser. The second ones expire if the objective for which they serve is fulfilled (for example, so that the user remains identified in the services of cobiosa.com) or when they are manually deleted.
Additionally, depending on their objective, Cookies can be classified as follows
PERFORMANCE COOKIES: We do not use this type of cookies.
GEO-LOCATION COOKIES: We do not use this type of cookies.
REGISTRATION COOKIES: We do not use this type of cookies.
ANALYTICAL COOKIES: Each time a user visits a cobiosa.com service, the website generates an analytical cookie on the user's computer. This cookie that is only generated during the visit, will be used in future visits to cobiosa.com to anonymously identify the visitor. The main objectives pursued are:
Allow anonymous identification of navigating users through the cookie (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate counting of the number of visitors and their trend over time.
Anonymously identify the most visited content and therefore more attractive to users.
- To know if the user who is accessing is new or repeats visit.
Important: unless the user decides to register with cobiosa.com, the cookie will never be associated with any personal data that can identify him directly. These cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that help to optimize and improve the user experience on the site.
