Cookies Policy

In accordance with current legislation, Fundación Telefónica provides users with information on the cookies used by this website, in order to provide users with a better experience when accessing this website.

For this purpose, we will now inform you about what a cookie is, who uses them, the cookies used on this website and the reason for their use. Fundación Telefónica also provides information on the way in which cookies can be configured or disabled, the storage periods for the information collected, whether there are international transfers of data and the way in which modifications can be made to this Cookie Policy.

What are cookies and how do they work?

Cookies are a tool used by our web servers to store and recover information about visitors to our website. Cookies can be small text files that are sent to your computer, tablet or any other device that allows you to browse the Internet when you access certain web pages, or other similar technologies whose functionality is the same. Cookies allow, among other things, to keep track of your browsing habits or your computer, your preferences or your login information and remember them on your return.

Fundación Telefónica uses cookies to make browsing the website easier and to make the information it offers you more efficient and personalised.

What types of cookies are there?

Below, you will find a classification of the cookies used, bearing in mind that the same cookie may be included in more than one category.

Depending on the entity that manages them

Cookies may be first or third-party cookies:

a) Own cookies:

First-party cookies are those that are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by Fundación Telefónica, as publisher of the web portal, in order to facilitate easy browsing and adapt your preferences, thanks to the statistical information collected through them.

b) Third-party cookies:

Third-party cookies are those created and belonging to entities other than Fundación Telefónica and which, after being installed on the device through which a user accesses this website, allow different data and information to be compiled for statistical purposes (for example, through Google Analytics), to manage their interaction on social networks (such as Facebook or Flickr), or to enable their geolocation (Google Maps). Third-party cookies and the information obtained by them are managed by entities outside Fundación Telefónica.

Depending on how long they remain active

Cookies may be session or persistent.

a) Session cookies:

These cookies are assigned to the device from which the user is browsing only for the duration of the visit to the web portal and disappear automatically when the user closes the browser. They are usually used to store information that is only relevant for one-time browsing and disappear at the end of the session. These cookies allow Fundación Telefónica to analyse traffic patterns on its website and provide a better browsing experience, improving its content and facilitating the use of the web portal.

b) Persistent cookies:

Persistent cookies imply that the data remain stored in the user’s device or terminal used to browse, and their temporary duration is the minimum necessary according to the purpose of their use. The temporary duration of persistent cookies and their expiry date can be consulted through your browser settings.

Depending on their purpose

On this page, Fundación Telefónica only uses technical and statistical analysis cookies, which are those which, either processed by the foundation or by third parties, enable the number of visitors to be quantified and the use made by users of this website to be statistically analysed.

a) Strictly necessary or technical cookies:

These cookies allow the user to browse this website and use the different options that exist on it, including those that Fundación Telefónica uses to enable the management and operation of the website and to enable its functions and developments, such as, for example: identifying the session, using security elements during browsing, storing content for the broadcast of videos or sound, enabling dynamic content (for example, animated loading of text or images, etc.).

Technical cookies are strictly necessary to provide the developments of the web portal and for its correct functioning, therefore it is not possible to refuse their use.

b) Analytical cookies:

Analytical cookies, whether processed by Fundación Telefónica or by third parties, are those that allow the aggregate behaviour of users of the website to be monitored and analysed. The information collected through this type of cookies is used to measure the activity of the web portal, in order to introduce improvements based on the analysis of the usage data of its users.

On this website, Fundación Telefónica uses its own and third-party analytical cookies, mainly Google Analytics, for the aforementioned purposes, which are detailed in the following section.
