Cookies are a set of data that a server stores via the user’s browser to collect standard Internet registration information as well as data on the behavior of visitors to a website. That is, they are small text files that are stored on the computing device’s storage medium and that serve to identify users whenever they connect back to the website. Their purpose is to record the user’s visit and save certain information. Their use is commonplace and frequent on the Internet because it allows websites to work more efficiently and achieve greater personalization and analysis of user behavior.
Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into session or permanent cookies. The first type expires when the user closes the browser. The second type expires depending on when the objective for which they serve is fulfilled (for example, so that the user may remain identified by the services provided by Grosclaude & Partners SLP) or when they are manually deleted. Additionally, depending on their purpose, cookies can be classified as follows:
This type of Cookie stores user preferences for the tools found in the services so users needn’t repeat those same choices every time they visit. User site preferences include, for example, volume adjustments of video or sound players. This extends to the video transmission speeds that are compatible with the user’s browser, as well as any items stored in the Shopping Cart for e-commerce services, such as online stores.
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 guide the content that varies with user location.
Registration cookies are generated once the user has registered or subsequently opened an online session, and are used by the services to identify the user with the following objectives:
To keep the user identified so that, if a given service, the user’s browser or the computer shuts down and at a later time or date the user enters the service again, the user will remain identified, facilitating navigation without having to provide the same data again. This functionality can be suppressed if the user presses the [close session] button, which acts to delete this cookie, and the next time the user enters the service, he/she will have to logon to be identified.
Verify if the user is authorized to access certain services, for example, to participate in a contest.
Additionally, some services may employ connectors to social networks, such as Facebook or Twitter. When the user registers on a service using the credentials provided by a social network, he/she authorizes the social network to store a persistent Cookie that remembers his/her identity and guarantees him/her access to the service until it expires. The user can delete this Cookie and revoke access to the services via social networks by updating their preferences on the social network in question.
Each time a user visits a service, a tool from an external provider generates an analytical cookie on the user’s computer. This cookie, only generated during the visit, will serve during future visits for the services of Grosclaude & Partners SLP to identify the visitor anonymously. The main objectives of this type of cookie are:
To allow anonymous identification of users navigating the site by means of the cookie (which identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore track an approximate count of the number of site visitors and usage trends over time. To anonymously identify the most visited content and therefore understand what is more attractive to users. To determine if the user that is accessing the site is new or if it is a repeat visit.
Important: Unless the user decides to register for a service provided by Grosclaude & Partners SLP, the cookie will never be associated with any personal data that can identify users. These cookies are only used for statistical purposes that help optimize the experience of users on the site.
This type of cookie allows tailoring the information in the ads served to each anonymous user about the services of Grosclaude & Partners SLP. Among others, the duration or frequency of advertising hits, user interaction with them, or browsing habits and/or user behaviors are tracked, as these help to shape a profile relating to interests in advertising. In this manner, they allow for tailoring advertising to user interests.
In addition to the advertising managed by the Grosclaude & Partners SLP website for its services, the Grosclaude & Partners SLP website offers its advertisers the option of placing advertisements through third parties (“Ad-Servers”). In this way, these third parties can store cookies sent from the services of Grosclaude & Partners SLP and originating from user browsers, as well as access the data stored therein.
The companies that generate these cookies have their own privacy policies. At present, the Grosclaude & Partners SLP website uses the DoubleClick platform (Google) to manage these services. For more information, please visit
Users can configure different browsers to notify them of the placement of cookies and, if desired, prevent their installation on the computing device. Also, the user can check what cookies his/her browser has installed and what their expiration date is, with the option of deleting them.
