Cookies are small files that are installed on the user’s computer at the request of the website and are used for the web service you are accessing to perform certain functions.
This web service uses its own and third-party cookies to maintain the session of the user accessing the service (technical cookies), to personalize the options that the user has chosen; (personalization cookies), to perform a statistical analysis of the use of this web service; (analysis cookies) and social network cookies. Likewise, when interacting with third-party web services that provide a service to SAMi, which can be accessed from this web service, the cookies of these services are used (third-party cookies).
Below, we will proceed to explain the cookies used in this web service, how they are used, their purpose, and the possible consequences of disabling them:
Technical cookies are used to maintain the user’s session when accessing this web service and are particularly useful for maintaining the session in restricted access areas accessed by a previously authenticated user. Therefore, in order for the web service to function correctly, it is necessary to have cookies enabled in the browser. For this reason, if you have disabled the browser to install cookies, this web service will not work correctly. Once the user ends their session, the session cookie will no longer be useful and will be deleted.
Personalization cookies are used so that the browser can remember your preferences (for example, that you have already clicked on a certain warning, the chosen browsing language, preferred options, etc…) this cookie is stored on your computer and does not identify you as a user of the web service; therefore, if you access from another terminal equipment, as this cookie is not installed, it will not know your preferences. If you have disabled the installation of cookies, your preferences in the web service will not be saved in your terminal equipment, and therefore each time you access the service you will have to choose them again.
Analysis cookies: These are used to measure and analyze user browsing on this web service and thus study and improve the range of products or services offered. No personal user information is obtained through the analytical cookie; the information obtained relates to the number of users accessing the website, the number of pages visited, the frequency and repetition of visits, their duration, the browser used, the operator providing the service, the browsing language, the terminal used and/or the city to which the IP address of the terminal equipment is assigned. To perform the analytical service, this website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service developed by Google, which provides a service for measuring and analysing browsing on our website. More information about Google Analytics can be found at: http://www.google.com/intl/es/policies/privacy/. If this type of cookie is disabled, the website will not perform statistical analysis, but it will still work.
Social network cookies: These are third-party cookies and are used so that the user can interact with the different social networks referred to on this website (Facebook, Twitter, linkedin, Google map, etc…). The conditions of use of these cookies and the information collected are regulated by the privacy and cookie policies of each social network. If you have disabled the installation of cookies, you will not be able to interact with the different social networks, but the public information of the web service will still be shown to you.
We inform you that none of the cookies used to store information that allows the user to be identified, such as names, surnames, email or postal address, etc., nor are they used to obtain or access user information.
Furthermore, users who do not want cookies to be installed on their computer (which in this specific case will mean that certain services will not work correctly) or who wish to be informed when a cookie is going to be installed on their computer, may configure their browser to work in this way. Users are also informed that they may delete all cookies generated on their computers at any time.
