I have contracted the Cookiebot service, which is in charge of making a monthly scan of my website, informing about the cookies used, as well as helping me to offer the user greater transparency, leaving it up to you, as a user, to freely choose the cookies you really want to allow or not.
Definition and List of Cookies
What are not Cookies?
Cookies are not viruses, spam, Trojans, worms, spyware, or advertising programs – either static on the page or in a pop-up window format.
Where are Cookies Saved?
Cookie files are saved in each browser, (Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome, Firefox, etc.). To check this, you can enter the same web domain using two different browsers, you will see the preferences may be different in each browser, or in the private window within the same browser.
When cookies are not Enabled
- The chosen products/services will not be loaded in the shop, so a shopping cart will not be created, and this may prevent acquiring the desired products or services.
- You will not be able to access the client area, personal area, or any area requiring data confirmation.
- It will not be possible to collect the required data to analyse the site, preventing me from knowing how to improve it and its services, as well as your own experience as a user.
- You will not be able to share the content of the site on social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, among others.
- You will not be able to make comments on the blog.
- For your information, you will block all third-party advertising, decreasing the income for those who use this method (although it’s not my case, I do not use this type of advertising!).
- In certain domain websites your navigation can be regarded as spam because it cannot be identified.
Exercising your Rights
You can disable the cookies that you do not wish to use, by changing your consent as indicated in the Definition list of Cookies section within this policy.
