The information collected through cookies may be used both by the Website and by third-party collaborating companies, such as operators and agents involved in advertising networks and/or advertisers, for the purposes described in the previous section.
Some of these third parties may be located in third countries whose legislation does not offer a level of data protection equivalent to that of Europe; however, you can consult the appropriate guarantees they offer to ensure that international transfers of data are carried out taking into account the rights and freedoms of the data subjects.
You can find out more about these third parties, as well as the types of cookies they install, the purposes for which they process the data, the guarantees they offer for international transfers, the retention periods, and how your preferences can be configured with respect to them, through the privacy policies available from these third-parties. We are not liable for the accuracy and content of the privacy policies offered by these partners on their websites.
We also may share aggregated or anonymized information which cannot be reasonably used to identify you in order to gather data to enhance and design our Website.
Neither the Website nor its legal representatives are responsible for the contents or the veracity of the privacy policies that the above mentioned third parties may have. Please note that web browsers are the ones responsible for storing cookies and they should be contacted by users in order to exercise their rights to delete or disable those. Therefore, neither this Website nor its legal representatives can ensure the proper handling of cookies by any of the referred browsers. Last but not least, please note that, in some instances, it is necessary to install some cookies so that the browser can remember – if applicable – the user’s decision not to accept them.
