- What are cookies
Cookies are small text files that are sent by the visited website to your device (referring by the term device to the personal computer or PC, tablet, cell phone or any other device through which you may access the Web) (the “Cookies“). Cookies are stored on the hard drive of your computer, allowing the website to recognize you and store certain information about you, in order to enable or improve the service offered and adapt the content of the Web to your profile and needs.
Other similar technologies such as tracking pixels, web beacons, device IDs or tracking URLs also allow collecting data on users, pages visited, links clicked, advertisements displayed or emails opened.
The Cookies used are only associated with your anonymous user and your computer, and do not themselves provide your personal data.
Cookies are useful for several reasons. They allow the Service to work in an agile way and adapted to your preferences. Thanks to the statistical information we collect with cookies, we can better understand users’ needs and improve the Service.
- Types of Cookies
Below, we provide information about the type of Cookies used in the Service and their purpose.
Depending on who is the entity that manages the equipment or domain from which the Cookies are sent and treats the data obtained, we can distinguish:
- Own cookies: those that are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from the web page.
- Third-party cookies: are those that are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the editor, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies, such as www.google.com, www.youtube.com or www.twitter.com.
Depending on the length of time they remain activated in the terminal:
- Session Cookies: these are a type of Cookies designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a web page. As their name suggests, these cookies are stored on your terminal until the end of the user’s browsing session.
- Persistent Cookies: these are a type of cookies in which the data remain stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the Cookie manager, which can range from a few minutes to several years.
According to their purpose:
- Technical cookies: are those that allow the user to navigate through the website or platform and the use of the different options or services that exist in it, for example, control traffic and data communication, identify the session, access restricted areas, use security features during navigation or store content for broadcasting videos or sound or share content through social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, Google+ or YouTube. These are session and persistent cookies.

In addition to the Cookies that DOMUS sets when you visit us, as you will see, there are also third party Cookies, necessary to provide the Service. In some cases, this is because we have engaged such third party to provide certain services on our behalf, such as Service analytics, automatic code error handling, analytics, etc.
We work with online advertising companies to place our Cookies on their websites or advertisements. This helps us to know how often a click on one of our ads converts into a purchase or other action on the advertiser’s website.
At DOMUS we also work with Google Analytics, which helps us to collect analytical statistics on the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns or other operations. These technologies allow analytics providers to set or read their own Cookies on your device, through which they can collect information about your use of the Service, always in an anonymized form.
You can always opt out of the collection or use of data by Google analytics by clicking on the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout (requires a browser plug-in to be installed)
The information that is collected through the cookies of a web page can be used as much by DOMUS as by a third party that provides a service to the holder. In this sense, the information of the Cookies used in the Service is treated by DOMUS and by third parties, such as Google, with respect to the behavior of users.
