A cookie is a small removable data file that is stored by a user’s computer, tablet, smartphone or other device, and contains browsing information.
Overall, our users’ cookies help us provide a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages are useful and which are not, and which ones could be improved.
Cookies are fundamental to the smooth operation of the internet. They offer a host of benefits when providing interactive services and improve the navigability and usability of our website. There is no way cookies could cause damage to your equipment. The reverse is true; they help identify and fix errors.
Our own cookies
These cookies are sent to your device by our own equipment or domains, from which we provide the requested service.
These cookies are sent to your device by a device or domain not managed by us, but by a partner organisation. Examples include cookies used by social networks or by external content such as Google Maps.
These temporary cookies remain in your browser’s cookies file only while you are visiting the website, meaning that cookies are not registered on your computer’s hard drive. We use the information these cookies provide us to study web traffic patterns. Over time, this allows us to improve browsing through better, easier-to-use content.
These are stored on your hard drive. Our website reads these each time you return to our website. A permanent website has a specific expiry date. The cookie will no longer work once that date has passed. We generally use these cookies for purchase and registration services.
These are needed for browsing and for the smooth operation of our website. Their uses include enabling the monitoring of traffic and communicating data, access to restricted access areas, placing of orders, use of security features and storage of content for posting videos or sharing content over social networks.
These allow access to the service with a number of predefined features that depend on a set of criteria. These include language, browser type used to access the service, settings for the region from which you are accessing the service, etc.
These allow us to quantify the number of users and thus measure and perform a statistical analysis of how the users make use of the services provided. To do this, we analyse their browsing habits on our website with the aim of improving our offer of products and services. Likewise, we use analytical cookies to recognise the device and prevent fraud in specific transactions made with the Financiera El Corte Inglés charge card, as well as in any transaction financed by this entity.
These enable us to fully optimise management of any advertising spaces included on our website.
