Cookies are files that are downloaded in your computer to access certain websites. Among other things, the cookies allow a website to store and recover information about a user’s browsing habits or those of their equipment, depending on the information they contain and the way that their equipment is used. Moreover, they improve the browsing process as they provide the user with information that might be of interest to them according to how they use the website and the content in it.
For example, the cookies enable us to identify your device, give you safe access to FUNDACIÓN RENE QUINTON and our sites in general, and even help us find out if someone tries to access your account from another device. The cookies also enable you to share content easily about the FUNDACIÓN RENE QUINTON and they help us show you relevant advertising.

WHAT TYPE OF COOKIES DOES FUNDACIÓN RENE QUINTON USE?
Two types of cookies can be distinguished according to the entity that manages the domain from where the cookies are sent and they process the data that they obtain: own cookies and third party cookies.
There is also a second classification according to the amount of time that they are stored in the client’s browser, in which case they can be session cookies or persistent cookies.
The Cookies can be classified according to how long they stay:
- Session cookies: they expire when the user closes the browser.
- Persistent cookies: they expire when the objective for which they are used is attained (for example, so that the user is always identified in the website and in the services it provides or when they are deleted manually).
Finally, there is another classification according to the purpose for which the data processed is obtained.
The cookies can be classified in the following way according to their objective:
- Performance cookies (technical and personalization): This type of cookie recalls your preferences for the tools that are located in the services, which means that the service does not have to be configured every time you visit the website. By way of example, the following are included in this type of cookie: volume adjustments in video and audio players and video data transmission rates that are compatible with your browser.
- Geolocation cookies: These Cookies are used to determine the country you are in when you request a service. This Cookie is totally anonymous and it is only used to help guide the content to your location.
- Login cookies (technical and personalization): The login Cookies are produced once the user has registered or later when they have opened the session and they are used to identify you in the services with the following objectives:
- Keep Users identified so that, if a service closes, at another time or on another day, the browser or the computer accesses the service again, they will still be identified, which therefore makes their browsing easier because they don’t have to identify themselves again. This feature can be disabled if the user presses the function “close session”, so that this Cookie is deleted and the next time that it is activated the user will have to start the session to identify themselves.
- Check to see whether the user is authorised to access certain services, for example, to take part in a competition.
- Analytical Cookies: Whenever a User visits a service or information on the website or a tool from an external supplier (Google Analytics, Comscore and similar that can be added to this list if they vary with regard to the existing ones) an analytical cookie is generated in the user’s computer. This cookie, which is only generated in the visit, will be used in subsequent visits to the services available in the website to anonymously identify the visitor. The main objectives of this are:
- Provide for the anonymous identification of the users browsing around through the cookie (it identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore it counts the number of visitors and their time trends.
- Identify the most popular content anonymously and therefore the most appealing for users.
- Know whether the user that is accessing the website is new or has visited the website before. Important: Unless the user decides to sign up for some service or content of the website, the cookie will never be associated with any type of personal data that can identify them. These Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that help optimize the experience of the users in the website.
- Own advertising Cookies: they are used to inform the owner of the website if a User has visited the advertising included in it or not. They also help to run ad slots in the website by storing data about the behaviour of the User in the browsing to be able to provide you with advertising.
- Third party publicity Cookies: As well as the publicity supplied by the website in its content or services, it can offer its advertisers the possibility to feature ads through third parties (“AdServers”). In this way, these third parties can store cookies sent from the content of the websites that come from the browsers of the Users, as well as access the data that is stored in them. The companies that produce these Cookies have their own privacy policies.
For more information on this matter read the Spanish Data Protection Agency Guide on how to use the cookies.

|PERFORMANCE, ANALYSIS AND RESEARCH|
WHAT IS DNT TECHNOLOGY?
«Do Not Track» (DNT) is a concept promoted by the North American regulatory authorities, such as the US Federal Trade Commission, for the Internet sector to develop and implement a mechanism that lets internet users control the follow-up or tracking carried out on their activities online in different websites through the configuration of their browsers. El World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has been working for quite some time with agents from the sector, Internet browsers, technological companies, regulatory agencies to develop a DNT technology standard. Although some progress has been made, it is not enough. So far no regulation on the matter has been adopted. As such, FUNDACIÓN RENE QUINTON does not respond to «no tracking» signals.
HOW ARE THE COOKIES USED FOR ADVERTISING?
The cookies and other advertising technology such as web beacons, pixels and labels help us show you relevant ads more effectively. They also help us provide you with aggregated auditing data, studies and reports for advertisers, to understand and improve our service and find out what content you have been shown. NB: As your browser might ask for these ads and beacons directly from the servers of advertising networks, these networks might see, edit or establish their own cookies just as if you have asked to see a webpage from its website. The ads in FUNDACIÓN RENE QUINTON can also include third party cookies.
Unless you delete these cookies from your browser, we might use this information to:
- Show the most relevant publicity based on your interests.
- Provide aggregated data about the advertising activity to advertisers and to the websites that host these ads.
- Help the owners of the apps and the websites to know more about the way visitors interact with their websites or apps.
- Detect possible fraud and other risks and protect our users and members from these.
- Improve our products.
