Cookies are a tool used by web servers to store and retrieve information about their visitors or users.
It is nothing more than a text file that some servers install during browsing and that allows them to know information such as: the place from which you access, the connection time, the device from which you access (fixed or mobile), the operating system and browser used, the most visited pages, the number of clicks made and data regarding the user’s behaviour on the Internet.
They do not provide references that allow the name and surname of the user to be deduced and cannot read data from your hard drive or include viruses in your equipment.
Likewise, they cannot read cookies implanted on the user’s hard disk from other servers.
Why are they important? The website is accessible without the need for cookies to be activated, although deactivating them may prevent it from functioning correctly.
From a technical point of view, cookies allow websites to work in a more agile way and adapted to the user’s preferences, such as storing the language, the country’s currency or detecting the access device.
They establish levels of protection and security that prevent or hinder cyber-attacks against the website or its users.
Allow media managers to know statistical data collected to improve the quality and experience of their services.
They are used to optimise the advertising we show to users, offering the advertising that best suits their interests.
The user can configure their browser to reject all cookies by default or to receive an on-screen warning of the reception of each cookie and decide whether or not to install them on their hard drive.
This acceptance may be revoked by means of the content and privacy configuration options available in the browser. The Owner recommends that users consult their browser’s help or access the help web pages of the main browsers: Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome.
If you would like more information about how to revoke the consent given or about the procedure for disabling cookies, as well as to ask any questions about the Cookies Policy, you can contact the Holder via the following email address INFO@FRESHSOURCING.ES indicating “Cookies Policy” in the subject line.
