DOES THE INSTITUT DE LA MÀCULA USE COOKIES?

The INSTITUT DE LA MÀCULA uses cookies in order to make browsing easier and provide you with a better experience. This policy explains how we do this. 

What's a cookie?

Cookies are small data files stored on the computer of the person using the INSTITUT DE LA MÀCULA website that contain certain information on the website visit you have made. The cookie is downloaded by the device you use to access our website and stored on the hard drive of this device. These cookies have several uses, including that of allowing our website to recognise your device when you visit us again, making sure you receive the right content and saving information with the preferences or services you've provided us with.

In this policy we use the word "cookies" to mean all files that store information in this way. 

Which cookies do we use?

Our software and the traffic analyser for the website use cookies and IP trackers that help us gather data for statistical purposes, such as the date of the first and last visit, the number of visits, the URL and domain from which the user has arrived, the internet browser used and the screen resolution.

If they want, users can deactivate and/or delete these cookies by following the instructions given by their internet browser. However, if they do so, their ability to use some website functions may be slightly impaired and may not be compatible with the users' needs.

These cookies obtain general information on user access to the website (not to its content), subsequently providing us with global information on such access for statistical purposes.

Our website's cookies can be divided into three categories:

a)    Essential cookies

Some cookies are crucial for our website to work. For example, cookies help us to identify users so that they can enter their accounts. If you decide not to allow these cookies, you won't be able to access your account.

b)    Performance cookies

We use cookies to analyse how visitors use our website and to monitor its performance. This helps us to identify problems and resolve them quickly. For example, we can use performance cookies to keep a record of which pages are most popular. We might also use performance cookies to show links to other pages we've created that may be of interest to you, based on the pages you have visited previously.

c)     Functional cookies

We use functional cookies to remember your preferences. For example, we remember changes you've made to your account settings. We can also use functional cookies to offer you other services, as well as to upload video files on our website.

Third party cookies

We inform you that third parties may use cookies which we cannot control to offer you personalised ads. These cookies are probably performance or advertising/tracking cookies. We cannot control these third party cookies and, for more information, you should check the privacy and/or cookie policy of the third party in question.
