INFORMATION ON ANALYTICAL COOKIES

What are they for? Analytical cookies are used for measurement and analysis purposes, mainly to quantify the number of visits to a website and analyze how it is used by visitors (for example, to know which are the most-viewed sections or the most-consulted pages, or the duration of each visit) and perform aggregate statistical studies on the demographic profile of users who visit the website (for example, to know from which country / region the website is accessed mostly or how many have previously visited it).

What is the purpose? The information obtained through analytical cookies allows us to better understand how the website is used and thus be able to optimize and improve its operation, adapt the content, improve the services provided and offer a more interesting and personalized experience to the users who visit the website.

What type of information is collected? In general, analytical cookies do not collect information that allows you to directly identify visitors individually. This type of cookies is primarily intended to help understand how visitors interact with the website, collecting information in an aggregate and depersonalized way. However, these cookies collect certain technical information (such as the IP address of the device from which the user connects to the website) that could eventually allow a visitor to be identified only if it is combined with other data sources.

What data do we collect? Our systems collect certain technical information when a visitor accesses this website or interacts with the services available on it. We collect exclusively anonymous or pseudo-anonymous information from the visitor and use it only for analytical purposes.


  • IP Address:: The IP address of the device used to visit our website is used to geolocalize visitors anonymously and allows us to know the geographical location by continent, subcontinent, region and city, mainly to know where visitors access our site.
  • User ID:It is an identifier that is assigned to a specific visitor when he / she initiates a session in the private area of ​​the website. This identifier allows a more accurate analysis and to obtain statistics more adjusted to reality because it prevents the same user accessing our website through different devices (for example, through a computer or a smartphone) from being accounted as a different visitor.

The pseudo-anonymous information does not allow direct or personal identification of a visitor unless it is crossed with an external data source (such as a database or a CRM). We do not combine the information we collect for analytical purposes with data that can personally identify visitors. If we do so, the treatment of this information will be subject to the conditions of our Privacy Policy, provided that the information allows the visitor to be personally identified.

What analytical cookies are used in this Website? : This Website uses Google Analytics, an analytical service provided by Google (if you are interested, you can consult the privacy information related to Google Analytics here). However, we do not send or store in Google Analytics any personal information that allows us to individually identify a user of our website. We adopt specific measures and implement technological tools to avoid it, so that Google cannot associate this information directly to a specific device or person. Next, you can check the cookies we use, their specific purpose and their conservation period.
