What are Cookies?

The Bernat Galeria d’Art, S.L. website (hereinafter referred to as the Website) uses cookies. Cookies are files install in the browser by a web server to record the user’s activities on a specific website. The primary purpose of Cookies is to provide the user with faster access to the selected services. In addition, Cookies personalise the services offered by the Website, providing and offering each user information that is of interest to them or that may be of interest to them, according to their use of the Services.

The Web uses Cookies to personalise and facilitate the user’s browsing as much as possible. Cookies are only associated with an anonymous user and their device and do not provide references that allow the user’s personal data to be deduced. The user may configure their browser to notify and reject the installation of Cookies sent by the Web, without this affecting the user’s ability to access the contents of the website. However, we would like to point out that, in any case, the quality of the functioning of the website may be reduced.

Registered users, who have registered or have logged in, will be able to benefit from more personalised and targeted services, thanks to the combination of the data stored in the cookies with the personal data used at the time of registration. These users expressly authorise the use of this information for the purpose, without prejudice to their right to refuse or disable the use of cookies.

Likewise, the website will be able to know all the services requested by users, so that they can provide or offer information appropriate to the tastes and preferences of each user.

What type of cookies exist?

Cookies, depending on their Lifespan, can be divided into:

Session Cookies They expire when the user closes the browser.
Persistent Cookies They expire depending on when the purpose for which they are used is fulfilled (e.g. to keep the user logged in to the Services) or when they are manually deleted.

Depending on their Host, they can be divided into:

First party Cookies These are those that are sent to the user’s device from a domain managed by the publisher itself and from which the service requested by the user is provided..
Third-party Cookies These are those that are sent to the user’s device from a domain that is not managed by the editor, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies..

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

Performance Cookies This type of Cookie remembers your preferences for the tools found in the services, so you do not have to reconfigure the service each time you visit. By way of example, this type of cookie includes::
-Volume settings of video or sound players.
-Video bitrates that are compatible with your browser.
Traking Cookies These Cookies are used to find out your network location when you request a service. This Cookie is completely anonymous, and is only used to help target content to your network location.
Registration Cookies Registration Cookies are generated once the user has registered or subsequently logged in, and are used to identify you in the services for the following purposes:

  • Keep the user identified so that, if you close a service, the browser or the device and at another time or another day re-enter the service, you will continue to be identified, thus facilitating your browsing without having to identify yourself again. This functionality can be deleted if the user clicks on the “close session” function, so that this Cookie is deleted and the next time the user enters the service he/she will have to log in to be identified.
Analytical Cookies Each time a User visits a service, a tool from an external provider generates an analytical Cookie on the User’s computer. This Cookie, which is only generated during the visit, will be used in future visits to the Web Services to anonymously identify the visitor. The main objectives pursued are:

  • Allow anonymous identification of browsing users through the “Cookie” (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate counting of the number of visitors and their trend over time.
  • Identify anonymously the most visited and therefore most attractive content for users
  • Know whether the user accessing the site is new or a repeat visitor.
  • Important: Unless the user decides to register for a Web service, the “Cookie” will never be associated with any personal data that can identify him/her. These Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes to help optimise the User’s experience on the site.
Behavioural advertising cookies This type of “Cookies” allows to extend the information of the advertisements shown to each anonymous user in the Web Services. Among other things, they store the duration or frequency of display of advertising positions, interaction with them, or the user’s browsing and/or sharing patterns, as they help to create a profile of advertising interest. In this way, they make it possible to offer advertising related to the user’s interests.
Third party advertising cookies In addition to the advertising managed by the Website in its Services, the Website offers its advertisers the option of serving advertisements through third parties (“AdServers”). In this sense, these third parties can store Cookies sent from the Web Services from Users’ browsers, as well as access the data stored in them.
