1. What is a cookie?
Cookies are small text files or pieces of information that are stored on your computer or mobile device (such as smartphones or tablets) when you visit websites. As a general rule, a cookie contains the name of the website of its origin, as well as a “lifetime” (that is, how long the cookie will remain active on the device).
In this sense, we can also find Cookies called session cookies and persistent cookies. Their difference lies in the fact that session cookies are temporary cookies, where their useful life ends when the user closes the browser. On the other hand, persistent cookies are cookies with a longer useful life that remain on the device for a longer time, until the user deletes them manually, or depending on their duration or specificity, other types of cookies can be found.
2. What are cookies for?
Cookies can have various functions and purposes, they can be only for the operation of the website, thus optimizing navigation, improving its performance, or they can be for advertising purposes, where later advertisements of possible interest to the user are placed, or for purposes direct marketing.
3. What type (s) of cookies do we use and for what purpose (s)?
On the AEI24Labtest website we only store cookies for statistical purposes, so that through Google Analytics or other statistical tool we can be aware of both of the visits that are made to the website, as well as understanding where we have the most influx of customers / users.
4. Operations related to data processing.
Furthermore, AEI24Labtest will not misuse the data of its customers, such as illegal sale to databases for marketing purposes by third parties.
(I would say: AEI24Labtest commits to not misuse the data of its customers…)
On the other hand, in accordance with the European regulations related to the RGPD (General Data Protection Regulation), all data provided by customers or acquired through any established contact, in the event that these are kept in our database for a limited time of 1 year, will only be used for the relationship between AEI24Labtest and the client, as happened with the cookies on the website. After that time, they will also be destroyed.
