What is a cookie?
A cookie is a file that is downloaded to your computer when you access certain websites. Cookies allow a website to, among other things, store and retrieve information about the browsing habits of a user or their computer and, depending on the information it contains and the way their computer is used, can be used to recognise the user. The user’s browser stores cookies on the hard drive only during the current session. It occupies minimal space in the memory and does not harm the computer. Cookies do not contain any type of specific personal information, and most are deleted from the hard drive at the end of the browser session (these are known as session cookies).
Most browsers accept cookies as standard and, regardless of the cookie, allow or block temporary or stored cookies in the security settings.
Without the express consent of users (which they provide by activating cookies in their browser), personal data provided at the time of registration or purchase shall not be linked by BarcelonActua to the data stored in cookies.
