a) Use of Cookies and Web Bugs on the HARINERA VILAFRANQUINA website: Analytics :

cookies are only used on the Harinera Vilafranquina website to provide statistics on the most viewed pages. First-party cookies are also used to enhance the application's performance and ensure only registered users are kept logged in to the private area and check whether they are allowed to use certain services. ¨Cookies¨ and similar means (hereinafter Cookies). Cookies are files sent to a browser by a web server to record user activity on a particular website or on all websites, apps and/or Web services belonging to HARINERA VILAFRANQUINA (hereinafter the Services). The main purpose of Cookies is to provide the User with quick access to the selected Services. In addition, Cookies personalise the Services offered by the HARINERA VILAFRANQUINA website by providing and offering each user information that may be of interest, in response to how the Services are used.

The HARINERA VILAFRANQUINA website uses Cookies to customise and provide the best user browsing experience possible. Cookies are solely associated with anonymous users and their computers and do not provide any information that may result in the User's personal data from being obtained. Users may adjust their browser settings to notify and reject cookies that have been sent by the HARINERA VILAFRANQUINA Websites from being installed without affecting their ability to access the site content. Nevertheless, you must be aware that there may be a reduction in the website's performance.  

Registered Users who have logged in may benefit from more customised services that are targeted to their profile through the combination of the data stored in cookies with the personal data used when registering. These Users expressly authorise that this information may be used for the specified purpose, regardless of their right to reject or disable the use of cookies.

b) Type and purpose of Cookies and how they work:

In terms of permanence, Cookies may be classed as persistent or temporary. The former expire as soon as the User closes the browser window. The latter expire when the purpose for which they are used finishes (e.g. to keep the user logged in to HARINERA VILAFRANQUINA Services) or when they are deleted manually.  

Additionally, depending on their purpose, Cookies can be classified as follows:

PERFORMANCE COOKIES: This type of Cookie remembers your preferences for the tools included in the Services so you do not have to reconfigure the service upon each visit. By way of example, this type includes: 


  • Volume settings of video or audio players.
  • The video transmission speeds that are compatible with your browser.
  • tems stored in the "shopping cart" in e-commerce services such as shops.  


GEO- LOCATION COOKIES: These Cookies are used to find out which country the user is in when a service is requested. This cookie is completely anonymous and is only used to help direct the content to the user's location. 

REGISTRATION COOKIES: Registration Cookies are generated once Users are registered or have subsequently logged in and are used to identify them in the Services for the following purposes:


  • Keep Users logged in so that if they close a Service, the browser or the computer and re-enter the Service at another time or another day, they will stay logged in, thus facilitating their browsing experience without having to login again. This functionality can be deleted if the User clicks on "close session" so that this Cookie is deleted and the next time he enters the Service the User will have to login to be identified.  


  • Check whether the User is authorised to access certain Services, for example, to enter a contest.  

Additionally, some Services may use connectors with social networks such as Facebook or Twitter. When the User is registered in a Service with a social network's credentials, he authorises the social network to store a persistent cookie to remember his identity and ensure access to the Services until it expires. Users can delete this Cookie and revoke access to the Services through social networks by updating their preferences in their specified social network. 


ANALYTICS COOKIES: Each time a User visits a Service, an external provider's tool (Omniture, Netscope, Comscore and the like that may be added to this list in the event of changes to the current providers) generates an analytics cookie on the User's computer. This Cookie that is only generated during the visit will be used in future visits to HARINERA VILAFRANQUINA Services to identify visitors anonymously. The main objectives of these cookies are the following: 


  • Allow Users who are browsing to be identified anonymously through the "Cookie" (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore makes it possible to have an approximate idea of the number of visitors and how this develops over time.
  • Anonymously identify the most visited content that is therefore the most appealing to users
  • Find out whether the User is accessing the site for the first time or is a repeat visitor.  


Important: Unless the User decides to sign up to a HARINERA VILAFRANQUINA Service, the "Cookie" will never be associated with any personal data that can identify him. These Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes to help optimise user experience on the site.

ADVERTISING COOKIES: These types of "Cookies" provide further information about the ads displayed to each anonymous User. Among other things, the duration or frequency of advertising positions are stored, as well as interaction with them, and User browsing patterns and/or behaviour as they help to shape an advertising interest profile. They thus make it possible to offer advertising related to the User's interests.

THIRD-PARTY ADVERTISING COOKIES: In addition to managed advertising, these types of "Cookies" give their advertisers the option of providing adverts through third parties ("Ad-Servers"). These third parties may thus store Cookies from the Users' browsers as well as access the data stored in them.

c) How to disable Cookies and Web Bugs in the most popular web browsers:

It is usually possible to stop accepting the browser's Cookies or stop accepting cookies from a particular Service. All modern browsers let you change Cookie settings.

These settings are typically located in your browser's menu under 'Options' or 'Preferences'. You can also set your browser or e-mail manager, in addition to installing free add-ons, to prevent Web Bugs from being downloaded when you open an e-mail.
