III.- POLICY REGARDING COOKIES FOR THE PROSEGUR WEBSITES.

a) Use of Cookies in the PROSEGUR website:

The PROSEGUR Website uses “Cookies” and other similar devices (hereinafter, Cookies). Cookies are files sent to a browser from a web server to record the User’s activity in a specific website or websites, apps and/or services owned by PROSEGUR (hereinafter, the Services). The main aim of Cookies is to enable faster access for the User to the Services selected. Furthermore, Cookies customise the Services that the PROSEGUR Website provides, enabling and providing Users information that is of their interest or may be of their interest depending on the use each User makes of the Services. The PROSEGUR Website uses cookies to customise and facilitate the Users’ browsing. Cookies are only linked to an anonymous User and their computer, and provides no references that may link with the Users’ personal information. The User may configure their browser in such a way that it notifies and rejects the installation of Cookies sent by the PROSEGUR Website without limiting the Users’ possibilities in accessing the Contents. However, it is made known to the user that the Website’s functioning may be hindered. Likewise, the PROSEGUR Website may know all the PROSEGUR Services requested by Users in order to provide or offer information suited to each User’s tastes and preferences.

b) Types, objectives and functioning of Cookies:

Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into session Cookies or permanent Cookies. The former expire once Users close their browser. The latter expire once their objective is met (for instance, for the User to remain identified with the PROSEGUR Services) or when they are manually deleted. Additionally, depending on their objective, Cookies may be classified as follows: PERFORMANCE COOKIES: This type of Cookie remembers your preferences for the tools found in the Services so that you don’t have to configure the service every time you visit it. For instance, this type of Cookies includes:

  • Volume adjustments in video or audio players.
  • Video transmission speeds compatible with your browser.
  • Objects in your “shopping cart” in e-Commerce Services such as stores.
GEO-LOCATION COOKIES: These Cookies are used to find out what country you’re in when you request a Service. This Cookie is completely anonymous and is only used to adapt the content to your location. REGISTRY COOKIES: Registry Cookies are generated once the User has registered or, later on, when they open up a session and are used to identify the User in Services, for the following purposes:
  • Identifying the User so that if a Service, the browser of the computer shuts down, and the User logs on to that service at another time or date, the User will still be identified, making browsing easier without having to log on again. This functionality will be curbed once the User presses the functionality “Close Session” which will delete the Cookie, causing the User to have to start a new session to be identified.
  • Checking whether the User is authorised to access a certain Service; for instance, to take part in a contest.
  • Additionally, some Services may use connectors with social networks such as Facebook or Twitter. When the User registers in a Service with social network credentials, it authorises the social network to save a permanent Cookie that remembers the User’s identity and it guarantees access to Services until it expires. The User may delete this Cookie and revoke access to such Services through social networks by updating their preferences in the social network in question.
ANALYSIS COOKIES: Every time a User visits a Service, a tool from an external provider (Google Analytics and Piwik and similar services that may be added if changes are made to the current list) generates an analysis Cookie in the User’s computer. This Cookie is only generated on visiting and will serve to identify the visitor anonymously in future visits to the PROSEGUR Services. The main purposes sought by this are:
  • Allow the anonymous identification of browsing Users by means of a Cookie (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and, therefore, an approximate account of the number of visitors and trends over time.
  • Anonymously identify contents that are visited the most and, hence, which are most attractive to Users
  • Learn whether the User who is accessing is new or a repeat visitor.
  • Important: Unless the User decides to register with a PROSEGUR Service, the Cookie will never be associated with any personal information that may identify the User. Such cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that help towards the optimisation of the User’s experience in the Website.
  • Find further information on the privacy policy of these tools here:Google Analytics
    Piwik
ADVERTISING COOKIES: This type of Cookies allow information to be gathered on the adverts shown to each anonymous User in the PROSEGUR Services. The cookie stores duration and frequency of visualisation of the different adverts, interaction with them, or browsing patterns and/or User behaviour that may help towards building a profile of advertising interests. This makes offering advertising that is akin to the Users’ interests possible. ADVERTISING COOKIES FROM THIRD PARTIES: Besides the advertising managed by the PROSEGUR Websites in its Services, the PROSEGUR Websites offer companies the possibility of showing adverts through third parties (“Ad-Servers”). In this way, these third parties can store Cookies sent by the PROSEGUR Services from the Users’ browsers, as well as accessing the information contained therein.

c) How to disable Cookies in the most common browsers:

It is usually possible to stop accepting the browser’s Cookies or stop accepting Cookies from a particular Service. All modern browsers allow their users to change their Cookies configuration. This configuration can usually be found in the ‘options’ or ‘Preferences’ section of the browser’s menu. The PROSEGUR Websites offer the User guidance on the steps they should follow to access the Cookies configuration menu and, given the case, private browsing for each of the main browsers:

  • Internet Explorer: Tools -> Internet Options -> Privacy -> Configuration. For further information, please consult Microsoft Tech Support or your browser’s Help menu.
  • Firefox: Tools -> Options -> Privacy -> History -> Customised Configuration. For further information, please consult Mozilla Tech Support or your browser’s Help menu.
  • Chrome: Configuration -> Show advanced options -> Privacy -> Content configuration. For further information, please consult Google Tech Support or your browser’s Help menu.
  • Safari: Preferences -> Security. For further information, please consult Apple Tech Support or your browser’s Help menu.

d) What happens if you disable Cookies:

Some functionalities of the Services will be disabled; for instance, remaining identified, keeping items in the “shopping cart” in an e-Commerce Service, receiving information aimed at your location or the viewing of certain videos. Updates and changes in privacy / cookies policy: The PROSEGUR Website may amend this Cookies Policy to meet legal demands and regulations, or with the aim of adapting the policy to the rules dictated by the Spanish Data Protection Agency. Users are advised to visit the Policy periodically. When significant changes in the Cookies Policy take place, Users will be informed through the website or through email in the case of registered Users.
