The Website uses cookies. Below we explain what type of cookies we use and how you can disable them if you do not want to allow them to be used.

 

What type of cookies does the Website use?

The cookies may be divided into several categories depending on various criteria, for example, their purpose, their duration or the company managing them. Below, we describe the cookies that the Website uses according to the different criteria generally used to identify them:

According to the company that manages the cookies:

  • Own cookies

    These are the cookies that are sent to your device from our own computers or domain and from which we provide the service that you request.

  • Third-party cookies

    These are cookies that are sent to your device from a computer or domain that is not managed by Pronovias, but by a partner entity

According to their purpose:

 

  • Technical cookies

    Technical cookies are essential and necessary for the user to browse the website and for it to function properly. The Website’s technical cookies are used, for example, for initiating and maintaining the user’s session, confirming that the user has correctly accessed the Website and keeping a record of users that have given their consent by accepting the Website’s cookies policy or even managing content translations.

    There are also cookies that manage the information of the shopping cart and the platform itself and which store information on recently seen products, including those in the cart, or those products that you want to compare. All this information is stored to make your browsing easier.

    Cookies may also be installed if you use our chat. These are mainly used to manage the history of the conversation and to allow it to be maintained while you browse through the Website.
  • Personalization cookies

    Advertising cookies monitor the users’ activity online, so only ads related to the Pronovias brand will be shown, including on websites owned by third parties and that manage their own advertising spaces.

    In addition to allowing us to show advertising on our website and those of third parties, they also allow us to gauge the effectiveness of our online campaigns, providing information of interest to users, and to show them advertising content in line with their preferences.

    They also allow us to limit the number of advertising impacts on each user.

  • Social media operational cookies

    Some social media networks, such as Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter, or third-party services and websites, give advertisers the opportunity to generate personalized audiences, in their environments, of users of those website networks or services who visit our website.

    This allows us to impact users directly on social media or third-party services, providing information, promotions or advertising contents that adapt to the interests of our users.

    Additionally, our website has sections and contents with social media buttons so users can share our content on social media.

    We don’t control the cookies installed by each social media network, although they tend to be technical to control logging in or show a counter of how many times certain content has been shared.

    We recommend all users review the privacy and cookies conditions for each social media network and, if necessary, change their privacy settings on each one to limit their ability to track the user.

According to their duration:

  • Session cookies

    These cookies are temporary and gather and store information only while you browse the Website, i.e., from the time you access the page or application until you leave it.

  • Persistent cookies

    These are cookies in which the data remains stored on the user’s terminal and may be accessed and processed for a period defined by whoever is responsible for the cookie, which may vary from one cookie to the next.

    If you do not delete the persistent cookie, the persistent cookie will expire on its own, i.e., it will stop working on its default expiration date.

 

How do I enable or disable cookies?

Before accepting the installation of Cookies, you may access our Cookies Settings, where you may select those cookies that you do not want us to install (remember that technical cookies are mandatory). If you do not access the Cookies Settings or the Cookies Policy and you continue to browse the Website, we take it that you accept installation of all the cookies.
