Cookies policy

The present section places the complete information referring to the cookies policy of PAYPER, S.A.  at the user's disposal.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a server can save in the hard disk of your hardware or device (computer, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you access certain web pages. Cookies allow a web page, among other things, to store and recover information on the habits of a user's navigation or of their hardware and, depending on the information they contain and the way hardware is used, they can be used to recognize or store some type of information about the user. The cookie can only be read by the website that sent it to the hardware. It is not an executable file nor can it spread nor contain a virus.

As the Spanish Data Protection Agency describes in its publication “Guides on the use of cookies” (accessible on-line from the web portal http://www.agpd.es), all cookies of a general character can be classified into 3 categories (each cookie being able to form part of more than one category):

- Category 1. According to the entity that manages them:

  • Own Cookies: are sent by the domain of the editor or team itself from which the service requested by the user is provided, to the user's terminal.
  • Third party cookies: are sent to the user's hardware by hardware or a domain that is not managed by the editor, but a third person in charge of treating the data obtained through the cookies.

- Category 2. According to the time that they remain active:

  • Session cookies: these are used to collect and store data only while the user is accessing a certain web portal.
  • Persistent cookies: the data collected by the cookie continues stored in the terminal, and can be accessed and treated by the person responsible for the cookie, during a period of time defined by the person responsible.

- Category 3. According to the purpose for which the data are obtained through the cookie:

  • Technical cookies: these are cookies related to the internal operation of the web portal, platform or application that allow the user the navigation through them or their use.
  • Personalization cookies: these allow the user to access the service requested with certain characteristics of a predefined general character in function of a series of criteria of the terminal, as would be the language, type of navigator, etc.
  • Analysis cookies: these are of a statistical type and they serve to perform the monitoring and analysis of the behaviour of the users of a website. They are used for the measuring of the activity of the web sites, applications or platforms, as well as for the elaboration of the users' profiles.
  • Advertising cookies: these are used to manage the advertising spaces that the editor has foreseen in their web portal, application or platform, based on criteria such as the published content or frequency in which the announcements are shown.
  • Behavioural publicity cookies: these are used to negotiate the advertising spaces that the editor has foreseen in the web portal, application or platform, based on approaches of the users' behaviour, obtained through their navigation habits.

The use of cookies by the providers of services of the Information Society is a habitual practice and is recognised legally by Law 34/2002 of 11th July, of Information Society Services and Electronic Commerce (article 22.2).

What types of cookies does this web page use?

Of the different types of cookie existing, PAYPER, S.A., only uses the following type of cookies in the present web portal:

1. Technical and personalization cookies: these are PAYPER, S.A.  cookies whose purpose is to manage the operation of the portal, facilitating and improving the access and navigation  experience for the user. In this respect cookies are only used in relation to the state of acceptance or not of the consent to the cookies themselves or privacy policy, as well as recognition cookies of the navigator with the aim of determining its compatibility with the JavaScript programming language.

The use of the cookies mentioned does not identify the user and therefore, it does not suppose the obtaining and treatment of data of a personal character.

2. Analysis Cookies: these are cookies of a statistical or analytic type dedicated to monitoring the user's behaviour. Specifically, the following analysis cookies are used:

a) Google Analytics: this is a tool that helps the proprietors of web sites to measure how the users interact with the site content. When a user navigates the pages of a website, Google Analytics provides the proprietor of this site JavaScript labels (libraries) to register the information on the page that a user has seen; for example, the URL of the page. The JavaScript libraries of Google Analytics use HTTP cookies to "remember" what a user has done in pages or in interactions with the previous website. For more information on this type of cookies, you can go to the following link.
