Cookie Policy

The Asociación de Epilepsia website uses cookies. In this section we explain our cookie policy so you understand what we are talking about. 

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file that is downloaded through the user's browser to store data that may be recovered by the organisation that installed it. Cookies are essential for the operation of the internet and, among other things, aid browsing.

What are cookies for?

Cookies are used to store various types of information. There are many kinds of cookies, differentiated by the organisation that manages them (own or third-party cookies), the period of time they are activated (session or persistent cookies), and their purpose (technical, personalisation, analysis, advertising or behavioural advertising cookies). For example, a cookie makes it possible to remember a user's session initiation data (if we store data in your browser with your preferences and configurations, they can be automatically re-established when you next visit without you having to select them again - for example, if you select the language); gather information about your browsing habits (so as to improve your experience); or show you more relevant advertising based on that information. 

How can I revoke my consent and delete cookies?

You can change your browser settings so that it no longer accepts cookies or warns you whenever you visit a webpage that uses them. However, if you do that, it is likely that there will be sections of the website or applications that you cannot use.

All modern computers allow cookie settings to be changed. These settings are normally found in ‘options’ or ‘preferences’ in your browser's menu.

If you would like to configure the cookies on your computer, below are the steps you need to take to access the cookie configuration menu and, if you wish, turn on private browsing in each of the most commonly-used browsers:

  • Internet Explorer: Tools-> Internet Options -> Privacy -> Settings.

Types of cookies that we use

  • Performance enhancement cookies
    These kinds of cookies store your preferences for certain services or tools (such as the language) so you do not have to change the settings every time you visit our website.
  • Statistical analysis cookies
    These cookies allow us to count how many people visit the website and statistically analyse how users use our services. They may be processed by us or by third parties and they allow us to study how people browse our website and the best way to present it.
  • Other third-party cookies
    Third-party cookies may be installed on some of our pages to manage and improve the services they offer. An example of such use is links to social networks that allow our content to be shared.

Updates and changes to the privacy/cookie policy:

The Asociación de Epilepsia  website may modify this Cookie Policy due to legislative or regulatory requirements or in order to adapt the policy to instructions received from the Spanish Data Protection Agency, so users are advised to check it from time to time.
