Cookies are small files stored on the devices that users use to access the Internet—smartphone, tablet, computer. These files gather information and send it to the party responsible for their installation.
You can disable the cookies installed by our Portal. We will explain how to configure your Internet browser to do this. Remember that you can delete and block cookies or detect them before they are installed.

The types of cookies we use
We use “analytical cookies” which, along with the information from the host server, supply us with information related to the number of visits to our website and the most popular sections. If you are on our website, the cookies will register the session and references.
Analytical cookies enable us to monitor and analyse the behaviour of users of the websites they are linked to. We then use this information to measure website activity and to create user browsing profiles. Some of them are essential, and without them the website or some of its sections or content could not be displayed; others are functional.
These cookies are necessary for the proper use of the website, allowing access to the different sections. Without these cookies, many of the services that are currently available would not work.
These cookies collect information about how the website is used (e.g. pages visited, loading errors, etc.). This is generic and anonymous information and does not include personal data. Information identifying website visitors is not collected, as the ultimate objective is to improve the functionality of the website.
Our browsing cookies are owned by a third party: Google Analytics. Go here for more information.
These cookies allow information (such as the user’s name, language, or the region where he or she is located) and more personal characteristics to be recorded. This enables us to offer personalised content based on the information and criteria you have voluntarily provided. These cookies can also be used to record changes to text size, fonts and other parts of the website that can be customised. The information collected by these cookies can be anonymous and cannot be used to follow your activity on other websites.
How to configure/manage cookies
Some alternative methods are provided to enable you to manage cookies that may be useful. Remember that pages might not work properly if you block cookies. If this happens, your browser may show a message stating that you need to enable cookies for the page to work properly.
Private browsing mode
You can use the private or anonymous browsing mode that most browsers on the market allow.
If you use the private mode, information about the sites you have visited, tracking cookies, your download history and login data will not be stored. Passwords and forms are not saved.
However, the Internet provider will still know that you have accessed the site. The user’s IP address will still be visible. Private mode access does not protect from attacks.
To access private browsing, in Chrome, under the configuration tool, click on “New incognito window”; in Edge, under the configuration tool, click on “New InPrivate Window”; in Firefox, go to Tools – “New private window”; in IE11, go to Security from Tools and then click on “InPrivate Browsing”; in Opera, click on “New private window” in the Menu.
There are many tools on the market that can help you to manage cookies. These tools are designed either to avoid the functioning of cookies or to block their functions. Ghostery and Do Not Track Me are two examples.
You can block behavioural cookies (from other websites) on the opt-out platform published onhttps://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices.

Lastly, do you know what monitoring technologies are?
Websites and HTML emails may include tracking technologies such as “web beacons”, which are small transparent images that can provide statistical information and are used in much the same way as cookies. They are usually used in conjunction with cookies but are not stored directly. If you disable cookies, “web beacons” may still continue to function, albeit in a more restricted way.
A banner like that used for cookies will be clearly shown to let you know when beacons are being used.
