Below you will find detailed information on what Cookies are, what type of Cookies this website uses, how you can disable them in your browser and how to specifically block the installation of third-party Cookies.
What are Cookies?
Cookies are files that websites or applications install on the user’s browser or device (e.g. smartphone, tablet or TV) when they access the pages of the site or application and are used to store information about the user’s visit.
- Ensure that web pages can function correctly
- Store preferences, such as the language you have selected or the font size
- Understand the user’s browsing experience
- Collect anonymous statistical information, such as which pages the user has visited or how long they have stayed on the website
Types, purpose and functioning
Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into session or permanent cookies. The former expire when the user closes the browser. The latter expire when the purpose for which they are used is fulfilled (for example, for the user to remain identified on the website) or when they are manually deleted.
Additionally, depending on their purpose, Cookies can be classified as follows:
Strictly necessary (technical): These are essential for the correct functioning of the page. They are normally generated when the user accesses the website or logs on to it and are used to identify the user on the website with the following objectives:
To keep the user identified so that, if he/she leaves the website, browser or device and at another time accesses the website again, he/she will continue to be identified, thus facilitating browsing without having to identify him/herself again.
To check whether the user is authorised to access certain services or areas of the website.
Performance: These are used to improve the browsing experience and optimise the functioning of the website, such as, for example, storing service configurations, or storing a purchase made in a shopping cart.
Advertising: These are the ones that collect information about the advertisements shown to users of the website. There can be two types:
Anonymous: They only collect information about the advertising spaces displayed on the website, regardless of the user accessing the website, i.e. without expressly identifying him/her.
Personalised: They collect personal information about the user of the website by a third party, for the personalisation of these advertising spaces.
Geolocation cookies: These Cookies are used to find out in which country or region the user is located when accessing a website service in order to offer content or services appropriate to their location.
Analytical: These cookies collect information about the user’s browsing experience on the website, normally anonymously, although sometimes they also allow the user to be uniquely and unequivocally identified in order to obtain reports on the user’s interests in the services offered by the website.

Levels of intrusiveness associated with the cookies we use
The above cookies are categorised as to the “level of intrusion” based on a scale of 1 to 3, in which:
Level 2: Corresponds to anonymous cookies for internal use which are necessary for the maintenance of content and browsing, as well as cookies managed by third parties within the framework of services, expressly requested by the user on the websites (e.g.: Facebook or Twitter social plug-ins, embedded videos, maps).
Level 3: Corresponds to cookies managed by third parties, in the framework of services, which are not expressly requested by the user, allowing tracking through websites of which HEURA GESTIÓ AMBIENTAL S.L. is not the holder (e.g., display advertising management platforms). At this level, the holder is specifically specified. The use of level 3 cookies is subject to the prior permission of the user by expressly confirming their acceptance.
If the user so wishes, it is possible to stop accepting browser Cookies, or to stop accepting Cookies from a particular service.
All modern browsers allow you to change your Cookie settings. These settings are normally found in the “Options” or “Preferences” menu of the browser.
