Thank you for deciding to visit us. We want your experience on our website to be an excellent one, so we have written this Cookies Policy as transparently as possible.
What is a Cookie?
Cookies are files containing small amounts of information that are downloaded onto the user’s device when they visit a website. Their main purpose is to recognise the users each time they access our website and they also enable us to improve the quality and usability of our website.
Cookies are essential for the Internet to work properly; they cannot damage the user’s equipment/device and, if they are activated in your browser settings, they help us to identify and resolve possible errors in the way www.asssa.es functions.
Types of Cookies
There are different types of cookies. They all work in the same way but there are small differences between them:
a) Session Cookies. Session cookies last only as long as your visit and they are deleted when you close your browser. Their main purpose is to identify the type of device and support the security of the website or its basic functions. They do not contain personal information that enables us to identify someone.
b) Persistent or Permanent Cookies: They are stored on the hard disk of your device and our website reads them every time you visit it; they have a pre-determined expiry date, after which the cookie stops working. They enable us to identify your actions and preferences; they analyse your visits and help us understand how users reach our web page and how we can improve our services.
c) Functional Cookies: Enable users to remember the decisions they made, such as their login details and password. The information collected by these cookies is anonymous (that is, they do not contain your name, address or any other details).
d) Third Party Cookies. Third Party cookies are the cookies installed by a website that you are not browsing on; for example, the ones used by social media (like Facebook) or by external content plug-ins (like Google Maps). Some advertising companies also use these kinds of files to monitor your visits to every website where they advertise.
e) Analytical Cookies: The purpose of these cookies is to carry out regular maintenance and ensure users get a better function and service; they do this by compiling data about your activity.
When you access www.asssa.es you must expressly accept the use of this type of cookies on your devices. If you deactivate cookies, your browsing quality may be affected and some of the website features may not function correctly.
a) Own Cookies
In order to recognise you and provide you with a better service, our website uses our own cookies (small text files stored by your browser). The advantage of accepting our cookies is that it saves you time. They can also be used to recognise you on your subsequent visits and adapt the content shown to you, to obtain information about the date and time of your last visit, measure some traffic parameters within the website itself and estimate the number of visits made, so we can focus and adjust our services and promotions more effectively.
No cookies will allow us to contact you on your telephone number, your email address or by any other means. No cookies can extract information from your hard disk or steal your personal information.
