  1. a) Use of Cookies:

paotrans.es uses “Cookies” and other similar mechanisms (henceforth, Cookies). Cookies are files sent to a browser through a web server to register User activity on a particular website (henceforth, Services). The first purpose of Cookies is to provide the User with a faster access to the selected Services.

Moreover, Cookies personalise Services, providing each User information of his/her interest or that could be of his/her interest, with regards to his/her use of the Services.

Cookies are used to personalise and maximise ease of browsing for the User. Cookies are associated only to an anonymous User and his/her computer, and they do not provide references that may allow the deduction of the User’s personal data. The User can set his/her browser to notify him/her and to refuse the installation of Cookies. This will not be prejudicial to the User’s access to content. However, be advised that the functioning quality of the website may lower.

The registered Users who register or who sign in may benefit from more personalised Services and directed to their profile, thanks to the combination of the data stored in cookies and the personal data used at the time of logging them. Said Users deliberately authorise the use of this information with the appropriate purpose, without losing their right to reject or disable the use of cookies.


  1. b) Typology, purpose and functioning of Cookies

Cookies, based on their permanence, can be divided into sessional or permanent. The first type expire when the User closes the browser. The second type expire when the purpose for which they exist is achieved or when they are manually erased.

Additionally, based on their objective, Cookies can be classified in the following way:

  • Volume adjustments in video and sound players.
  • The speed of video transmission that are compatible with your computer.
  • Objects saved in “cart” in E-Commerce Services such as online stores.

GEOLOCATION COOKIES: These cookies are used to find out what country you are in when you request a Service. This Cookie is entirely anonymous and is only used to provide content depending on your location.

LOG COOKIES: Log Cookies are generated once the User is registered or has previously signed in, and are used to identify him/her in the Services with the following objectives:

  • Keep User identified so that, if a Service is closed, the browser or computer, in a different moment or day, signs in again to said Service, will remain identified, easing the user’s navigation without having to identify him or herself again. This function can be supressed if the User presses the function “close session”, so that this Cookie is erased and the next time the user enters the User Service he or she will have to sign in to be identified.
  • Check that the User is authorised to enter certain Services, for example, to take part in a contest.

Additionally, some Services may use connectors with social networks such as Facebook or Twitter. When the User is registered in a Service with credentials from a social network, he/she authorises the social network to save a persistent Cookie that recollects his/her identity and guarantees access to the Services until it expires. The User may delete this Cookie and revoke access to the Services through social networks updating his/her preferences in the social network.

ANALYSIS COOKIES: Each time a User visits a Service, a tool from an external supplier (Omniture, Netscope, Comscore and similar, which could be added to this list in case) generates a Analysis Cookie on the User’s computer. This Cookie, which is only generated on each visit, will serve in the next visits for the Services to identify the visitor anonymously. The main objectives are:

  • Allow anonymous identification of the navigating Users through the “Cookie” (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate accounting of the number of visitors and their trend during the time they visit the website.
  • Identify anonymously the most visited, and therefore most appealing, content for Users.
  • To know if the User who is accessing is a new, or a repeating visitor.

Important: Unless the User decides to register in a Service, the “Cookie” will never be associated to any personal data that may identify him/her. Said Cookies will only be used with statistical purposes which will help the optimisation and experience of the Users on the site.


  1. c) How to disable Cookies and Web Bugs in the main browsers:

Normally it is possible to stop accepting Cookies in the browsers, or stop accepting the Cookies of a specific Service.

All modern browsers allow Cookie settings to be changed. These adjustments are usually found in “options” or “preferences” in your browser’s home menu. Likewise, you may configure your browser or email provider, as well as install free accessories to avoid Web Bug downloads when an email is opened.
