What are cookies?

Cookies are files that are installed on the computer from which you access our website. Thanks to them, information can be collected about user browsing, information that is used to offer a better service. The most common use of cookies is to collect statistical information. Practically all websites use them.

Generally speaking, cookies can be classified according to three criteria: duration, origin and purpose.

Cookies can be “session” cookies, which are deleted once the user leaves the website that generated them, or “persistent” cookies, which remain on the user’s computer until a specific date.

Likewise, cookies can be “own”, managed by the domain to which the user accesses and from which a specific service is requested (in this case the domain owned by FUNDACIÓN IMDEA ENERGÍA) or “third-party cookies”, sent to the user’s computer from a domain other than the one to which the user accesses.
