What are cookies?
A cookie is a small file that is stored on the user’s computer, mobile or tablet when accessing certain websites, applications or platforms and which allows them to recognise their users.
Cookies are currently essential for the functioning of the internet, providing countless advantages in the provision of interactive services, facilitating navigation and usability.
Cookies help tailor websites, applications or platforms to your personal needs.
Cookies cannot harm your computer. On the other hand, if they are activated, they can help to identify and resolve errors, as well as to improve the user’s browsing experience.
Cookies allow, among other things, to store and retrieve information about a user’s browsing preferences or equipment.
The specific uses we make of these technologies are described below.
What cookies do we use?
Owner of the cookies:
- We use our own cookies that we send to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by us and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
- We use third-party cookies (for example, cookies from Facebook, Google, Twitter…) used by external companies, social networks or external content add-ons (such as, for example, Google Maps). They are sent to the user’s terminal equipment from a computer or domain of a third party entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies.
We use technical cookies that are strictly necessary for the user to access and browse japlawyer.com.
They are those that allow the user to navigate through a website, platform or application and the use of the different options or services that exist in it, including those that are used to enable the management and operation of the website and enable its functions and services, such as, for example, control traffic and data communication, identify the session, access parts of restricted access, remember the elements that make up an order, carry out the process of purchasing an order, manage the payment, control fraud linked to the payment, control fraud linked to the use of the website and enable its functions and services, manage payment, control fraud linked to the security of the service, make the application for registration or participation in an event, count visits for the purposes of billing licenses for the software with which the service (website, platform or application) operates, use security features during browsing, store content for the broadcasting of videos or sound, enable dynamic content (for example, animation of loading text or images) or share content via social networks.
Also belonging to this category, due to their technical nature, are those cookies that allow the management, in the most efficient way possible, of the advertising spaces that, as another element of design or “layout” of the service offered to the user, the editor has included on a website, application or platform based on criteria such as the edited content, without collecting information from users for other purposes, such as personalising that advertising content or other content.
These cookies do not require the user’s informed consent.
We use preference or personalisation cookies, which are those that, when processed by us, allow us to remember information so that the user can access the service with certain characteristics that may differentiate their experience from that of other users.
For example, the language, the number of results to be shown when the user performs a search, the appearance or content of the service depending on the type of browser through which the user accesses the service or the region from which the user accesses the service, etc.
These cookies may require the user’s informed consent, unless the user chooses these features themselves (for example, if they select the language of a website by clicking on the relevant country flag icon).
We use analysis or measurement cookies which are those that, processed by us or by third parties, allow us to monitor and analyse the behaviour of the users of the websites to which they are linked, including the quantification of the impact of advertisements.
The information collected through this type of cookies is used to measure the activity of the websites, application or platform, in order to introduce improvements in the products or services offered based on the analysis of the usage data of the users of the service. These cookies require the user’s informed consent.
How long cookies are kept
- We use session cookies, which are cookies designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a website. They are usually used to store information that only needs to be kept for the provision of the service requested by the user on a single occasion (for example, a list of products purchased) and disappear at the end of the session.
- We use persistent cookies, which are those in which the data remain stored in the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the party responsible for the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years.
This type of information obtained through cookies will not be communicated to third parties or used for unsolicited communications.
