– Analysis cookies: these allow the party responsible therefor to follow up and analyze the behavior of the Users of the websites to which they are related. The information collected through these types of cookies is used in the measurement of the activity of websites, applications or platforms, and for preparing the browsing profiles of the Users of such sites, applications and platforms, for the purpose of introducing improvements depending on the analysis of the information of the use made by the Users of the service.

– Advertising cookies: these allow the management, as efficiently as possible, of the advertising spaces, if any, which the editor has included in a web page, application or platform from which they provide the service requested based on criteria such as the content edited or the frequency with which the advertisements are shown.
