Website www.arkeyvata.com uses ¨Cookies¨, and similar devices (hereinafter, Cookies). Cookies are files sent to a browser through a web server to register the User's activities in a particular website or in every web, app and/or service in this website (hereinafter, the Services). The first purpose of the Cookies is to provide the User a quicker access to the selected Services.

This website uses Cookies to customize and help the User's browsing experience. The Cookies are only associated to an anonymous User and its computer and do not provide references that might infer the User's personal data. The User can adjust the browser to notify and reject the storage of Cookies sent by this website, without prejudice to the User's access to the contents. However, in such a case, the quality of this website's performance may diminish.

  1. Type, purpose and performance of the Cookies:

    Cookies, pursuant to their duration period, can be divided into session or persistent Cookies. The former expire when the User closes the browser. The latter expire when they attain their purpose or they are manually erased. According to 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 that you do not have to configure the Services upon each visit. By way of example, these cookies include:

    • Sound or video volume adjustment.
    • Video transmission speed compatible with the browser.
    • Objects stored in the “shopping cart” in e-commerce services such as on-line shops.

    GEOLOCATION COOKIES: These Cookies are used to learn the countries from which the Services are requested from. This Cookie is completely anonymous and is only used to help guide the contents to your location.

    LOGIN COOKIES: Login Cookies are generated when the User has logged in or later on started a session, and are used to identify the User in the Services with the following purposes:

    • Keep the User identified so that if a Service is closed and the User re-enters in another moment or another day, the browser or the computer will continue to identify the User, helping the browsing experience and avoiding the need for further identification. This feature can be eliminated if the User selects the “close session” button, so that the next time the User re-enters the Service he or she will have to start a new session for identification.

    In addition to this, some Services can use plug-ins to social networks such as Facebook or Twitter. When the User logs in a Service with a social network id, he or she authorizes the social network to keep a persistent Cookie that will remember the User's identity and guarantees access to the Services until its expiration. Users can erase this Cookie and revoke access to the Services through social networks by updating their preferences on the specified social network.

    ANALYTIC COOKIES: Each time a User visits a Service, a tool from an external provider (Omniture, Netscope, Comscore and others that might be added to this list in the event of any future change) creates an analytic Cookie in the User's computer. This Cookie which is only created during the visit, will serve in future visits to the Website's Services to anonymously identify the visitor.

    The main purposes are:

    • To allow the User's anonymous identification through the “Cookie” (identifies browsers and devices, not persons) and therefore to count the number of visitors and trend through time.
    • To identify anonymously the most visited contents and therefore those which are more attractive for the Users.
    • To know if the Users are new to the website or not.

    These Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that will help to enhance the User's experience in the website.

    You can find more information on the privacy policy of these tools at:

    • Omniture: www.omniture.com/es/privacy
    • Comscore: www.comscore.com/esl/About_comScore/Privacy_Policy
    • Netscope: www.net-scope.com/oursolutions/oursolutions.aspx

    ADVERTISING COOKIES: This type of “Cookies” expands the information of the advertisements shown in this website's Services to each anonymous User. Namely, they store the duration or frequency of visualization of the advertisements, interaction with them, or browsing patterns and/or User behaviour that help to customize ads. This allows to engage Users better with advertising.

    THIRD-PARTY ADVERTISING COOKIES: In addition to advertising managed by this website, the latter also allows advertisers the possibility to show ads through third-parties (“Ad-Servers”). Said third-parties can store Cookies sent from the Website from the Users' browsers, and access the data stored in them.
