Cookies Policy of Selipsis


Selipsis inform its users of the use of cookies on this website:



What is a cookie?


Cookies are what you accept unread on every website you visit because you are in a hurry to configure your computer or refuse them. Just kidding. I’m getting serious.

cookies are small archives that are stored in your computer through websites. They are tools that play a key part in the provision of numerous services. They allow this website store and retrieve information about your habits and, depending on the information obtained, they can be used to recognise users and improve the service offered.


Here’s what you need to know about cookies. Send me an email if you read all this, it’s to congratulate you, because what a pain.



Types of cookies


Depending on who’s the entity managing the domain from where the cookies are sent, and how it processes data obtained, we can distinguish two types of cookies:


First-party cookies: those sent to the user’s own terminal equipment or domain managed by the own editor and from where a service is provided for users.


Third-parties cookies: those sent to the user’s terminal equipment from another PC or domain not managed by the editor, but by a third-party entity that process data obtained through these cookies. They’re installed by websites which don’t belong to Selipsis and do not reside on this domain. For instance, where I include content from YouTube on this website or buttons which users can use to share content on social networks, a user accessing such content from this website may have cookies added from these third parties. Selipsis doesn’t control these third-party cookies, and so the user must review the cookie policies of these other websites for further information.


In the case that cookies are installed from a computer or domain managed by their own editor, but data obtained through these cookies is managed by a third-party entity, they can’t be considered first-party cookies.


There is also a second classification depending on the length of time cookies are stored in a user’s browser. We can distinguish between the following:


Session cookies: designed to gather and store data whilst the user access a website. They’re normally used to store data that is only interesting to retain when it comes to providing a requested service by the user on one occasion only. (i.e. a list of purchased products).


Persistent cookies: data still stored in a user’s computer can be accessed and processed over a defined period of time by the party responsible for the cookie, and it can range from minutes to various years.


Lastly, there is another classification with five types of cookies depending on the purposes for which the data obtained is processed for:


Technical cookies: allow the user to make use of the different options they facilitate. For example, controlling data traffic and communication, identifying a session, accessing restricted areas, carrying out a purchase, requesting a subscription or participating in an event, etc.


Personalisation cookies: allow the user to access services with certain personalised characteristics such as language, browser type, configuration for the region from which the user accesses services etc.


Analytical cookies: allow website managers to follow and analyse the behaviour of users on a website so that they can make improvements informed by data analysis on the use of the website by users of its services.


Advertising cookies: help with the management of advertising spaces which a web editor has included on a website where services are offered, based on criteria such as the type of content or the frequency with which the content is shown.


Behavioral advertising cookies: they store data that provides insight into users’ behaviour. This data is obtained through the ongoing observation of their web-surfing habits, which allows the development of a specific profile to display ads on the basis of it.


External social networks cookies: those used so visitors can interact with the content of different social networks (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Linkedin, etc.) and that generate only for users of those social networks. The operating conditions of these cookies and the data gathered is regulated by the privacy policy of the relevant social network.
