The www.vallesalado.eus website uses "Cookies" and other similar mechanisms (hereinafter, Cookies). Cookies are files sent to a browser by a web server, which are downloaded to a User's device, to record the User's activities on www.vallesalado.eus (hereinafter, the Services). The main purpose of Cookies is to provide Users with faster access to the selected Services. In addition, Cookies personalise the Services offered by www.vallesalado.eus, providing and offering Users information that is of interest to them or that may be of interest to them, based on their use of the Services.
Registered users, who sign up or who have logged in, will benefit from more customised and profile-oriented services, thanks to the combination of data stored in cookies with personal data provided at the time of signing up. These Users expressly authorise the use of this information for the indicated purposes, without prejudice to their right to reject or disable cookies.
In addition, www.vallesalado.eus may detect all the Services requested by Users with a view to facilitating or offering information adapted to the tastes and preferences of each User.
The website www.vallesalado.eus also uses Web Bugs, which are tiny, transparent images inserted into emails. When Users open an email, this image is downloaded along with the rest of the email content and allows us to know if a specific email has been opened or not, as well as the IP address from which it has been downloaded. The website www.vallesalado.eus uses this information to obtain statistics and to be able to carry out analytical studies regarding the reception of its emails by Users.

2.TYPE, PURPOSE AND FUNCTIONS OF COOKIES:
Cookies, based on their permanence, can be divided into session cookies or permanent cookies. Session cookies expire when the user closes the browser. Permanent cookies expire when their purpose has been achieved (for example, to identify the user on the www.vallesalado.eus website) or when manually deleted.
Additionally, based on their purpose, Cookies can be categorised as follows:
PERFORMANCE COOKIES: This type of Cookie remembers your preferences regarding the tools provided in the Services, so you do not have to reconfigure the service each time you visit. By way of example, this type includes:
· Favourites, which store the values you consult most often.
GEOLOCATION COOKIES: These Cookies are used to detect which country you are in when you request a Service. This Cookie is completely anonymous and is only used to help link content to your location.
REGISTRATION COOKIES: Registration Cookies are generated when Users sign up or log in and are used to identify users on the Services for the following purposes:
- Keep users identified so that, if they leave the Service, the browser or computer and then re-visit the Service later or another day, they can continue to be identified, thus facilitating their browsing experience without having to log in again. This function can be disabled when Users click on the "logout" function. This deletes the cookie and the next time you access the Service you will have to log in again.
- Check if Users are authorised to access certain Services, for example, to access payment areas.
Additionally, some Services may use social networking connectors to connect to Facebook, Twitter or Google+. When Users register for a Service using their social media credentials, they authorise the social network to store a persistent Cookie that remembers your identity and grants you access to the Services until it expires. Users may delete this Cookie and revoke access to the Services via social media by updating their preferences on the specific social network.
ANALYTICAL COOKIES: Each time a User visits a Service, a tool from an external provider generates an analytical Cookie on the User's computer. This Cookie, which is only generated during the visit, will serve in future visits to www.vallesalado.eus to identify the visitor anonymously. The main goals pursued are:
- Allow the anonymous identification of Users by means of the Cookie (it identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate number of visitors and their trends over time.
- Anonymously identify the most frequently visited contents and therefore those that are most attractive for the Users.
- Know whether a User who is accessing the site is new or is a repeat visitor.
Important: Unless the User decides to register for a Service at www.vallesalado.eus. Such cookies will only be used for statistical purposes to help optimise the User's experience on the site.
