Use of Cookies by the KELVINGEAR S.L. website

The KELVINGEAR S.L. website (hereinafter the Web) uses Cookies. Cookies are files sent to a browser by a web server to register the activity of the User on a specific website. The first purpose of Cookies is to enhance user access to the chosen services. In addition, Cookies customize the services provided by the Web, facilitating and offering each user information of their interest or that may be of their interest, in view of the use they make of the Services.

The Web uses Cookies to customize and enhance user navigation to the full. Cookies are only associated with an anonymous user and your computer and they do not provide references to enable deducing the user’s personal details. The user can set up their browser to notify and refuse the installation of Cookies sent by the Web, without affecting the user’s ability to access the content of the website in question. However, it should be noted that, in any case, the operating quality of the webpage may decrease.

Registered users, users who register or that have logged on, may benefit from more customized services oriented to their profile, thanks to the combination of the data stored in the cookies with the personal data used at the time of registration. Those users expressly authorize the use of this information for the indicated purpose, without prejudice to their right to refuse or disable the use of cookies.

Also, the Web may know all the services requested by users, so that it may facilitate or provide information suitable to the tastes and preferences of each user.

  1. Type, purpose and operation of Cookies

Cookies, in accordance with their permanence, can be divided into “session Cookies” and “permanent Cookies”. The former expire when the user closes the browser. The latter expire when the purpose that they serve is met (for example, to keep the user identified in the Services) or when they are deleted manually.

Additionally, depending on their purpose, Cookies may be categorized as follows:

  • Performance cookies: this type of Cookie remembers your preferences for the tools found in the services, so it does not have to reconfigure the service every time you visit. For example, this type includes:
  • Video and audio player volume settings.
  • Video download rates that are compatible with your browser.
  • Geo-location cookies: These Cookies are used to find out from which country a service is requested. This Cookie is completely anonymous and is only used to help adjust the content to your location.
  • Log cookies: Log Cookies are generated once the user is registered or subsequently when they have logged on, and are used to identify them in services with the following purposes:
  • To keep the user identified so that, if they close a service, the browser or the computer and, at another time or on another day, they try to access this service again, they will still be identified, thus facilitating their browsing without having to identify themselves again. This functionality can be deleted if the user presses the “end session” feature, so that this Cookie is deleted and the next time they enter the website, the user will have to log in to be identified.
  • To check if the user is authorized to access certain services, for example, to participate in a contest.
  • Analytical cookies: Each time a User visits a service, a tool of an external provider (Google Analytics, Comscore and the like that may be added to this list should they vary in relation to the current ones) generates an analytical Cookie on the user’s computer. This Cookie, which is only generated upon the visit, will help in future visits to the Web Services to anonymously identify the visitor. The main objectives to be achieved are:
  • To enable anonymous identification of the browsing users via the “Cookie” (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate accounting of the number of visitors and its trend over time.
  • To anonymously identify the most visited contents and therefore those most attractive to users.
  • To find out if the user who is accessing is a new or a repeat visitor.

Important: Unless the user decides to register in a Web service, the “Cookie” will never be associated with any personal information that can identify them. These cookies will only be used for statistical purposes to help optimize the User experience on the website.

Further information regarding the privacy policy of these tools can be found at:

  • ComScore: http:/www.comscore.com/esl/About_comScore/Privacy_Policy
  • Google Analytics: https://www.google.com/intl/es/policies/privacy/
  • Advertising cookies: This type of “Cookies” allows expanding the information of the ads shown to every anonymous user in the Web Services. Among others, the duration or frequency of display of advertising positions is stored, interaction with them, or browsing patterns and/or user behavior as this helps to form a profile of advertising interest. Thus, they allow the provision of advertising related to the interests of the user.
  • Third party advertising cookies: Besides the advertising managed by the Web in its Services, the Web offers its advertisers the option of serving ads through third parties (“AdServers”). Thus, these third parties may store Cookies sent from the Web Services from the browsers of the Users, as well as access to the data stored in them.

The companies that generate these Cookies have their own privacy policy. Currently, the Web uses the Real Media and Weborama platforms to manage these services:
