1.- General information about browsing with cookies.

sagardoylegalexpat.com managers (the "website") inform users that this site uses a technology called "cookies", in order to personalise, improve the browsing experience and/or usability, improve security, as well as gather information about the use of the website, which allows the use of the website to be measured and statistics to be compiled.

The purpose of this cookies policy is to inform the user in a clear and precise manner about the cookies used on the website, their possible acceptance by the user, as well as the user's possibility of blocking, deleting and disabling cookies.

Users are informed that a cookie is a file that is downloaded onto the user's equipment (computer or mobile device) for the purpose of storing data, which may subsequently be retrieved by the entity responsible for the installation of each of the cookies. Cookies allow, among other things, to store and retrieve information about the browsing habits of a user and their equipment and, depending on the information they contain and the way they use their equipment, they can be used to recognise the user.

Users are informed that under no circumstances will the downloading of cookies, or browsing with cookies, be used on the website to collect information or data of a personal or confidential nature from the user, but that this technology is used exclusively for the purposes described in this cookies policy.

Thus, the information collected through the cookies used by the website may include information such as date and time of visit to the website, pages viewed, duration (time) of browsing through the website, and other similar information.

2.- Types of cookies used on the website.

The website uses the cookies described below:

I.- Own cookies.

Own cookies are those sent to the user's computer and managed by those responsible for the website, and whose purpose is to improve the operation and usability of this website, as well as the quality of the information made available to the public through it, and the user experience.

The cookies implemented on the website allow the user to improve the personalisation of their browsing on the website, and make it possible to improve the use of different options or services of the website by the user.

The cookies used by this website are of the following type:

  • Technical Cookies: These are cookies allowing the user to browse the website, platform or application and use the different options or services that exist on it, such as identifying the session, accessing restricted areas, or using security elements in browsing, among other purposes.
  • Personalisation cookies: These are cookies allowing the user to access the service with some predefined general characteristics, such as, for example, the language or the type of browser through which the user accesses the service.

II.- Third-party cookies.

Third-party cookies are those sent to the user's computer and managed by a domain or responsible party other than those managing the website. The website managers do not access, nor can they access, the data stored in third-party cookies.

  • DoubleClick cookies:

The website uses third-party cookies, specifically the so-called DoubleClick advertising cookies, developed and managed by Google, Inc.

We use cookies to make advertising more appealing to users and more valuable to publishers and advertisers. Cookies are often used to select ads based on content that is relevant to a user, improve campaign performance reporting and avoid showing ads that the user has already seen.

Google uses cookies, such as NIDs and SIDs, to personalise the ads you see on your properties (e.g., Google search). For example, we use these cookies to remember your most recent searches, your past interactions with an advertiser's search results or advertising, and your visits to an advertiser's website. This enables us to show you personalised ads on Google.

We also use cookies for the ads we display across the web. Our main advertising cookie on non-Google websites is called "id" and is stored in browsers in the doubleclick.net domain. We also use other cookies called "_drt_", "FLC" and "exchange_uid". These cookies may also be used on other Google properties (e.g. YouTube) to show you more relevant ads.

In some cases, a cookie may be set on the domain of a website you have accessed. In the case of DoubleClick, there may be a "__gads" cookie set on the domain of the website you are visiting. Unlike cookies set on its own domains, Google cannot read this cookie when you are on another website. Its function is, among other things, to measure interactions with ads on that domain and prevent you from seeing the same ad too many times.

Google also uses a number of conversion cookies whose primary purpose is to help advertisers determine the number of times people who click on their ads end up buying their products. These cookies allow Google and the advertiser to determine that you have clicked on the ad and subsequently visited the advertiser's website. However, conversion cookies only last for a limited period of time and are not used by Google for interest-based ad targeting. Typically, these cookies are enabled on the domains "googleadservices.com" or "google.com/ads" and are called "Conversion" and "TAID". Conversion cookie data may also be used in conjunction with your Google Account to link conversion events across different devices you use. Only anonymous data collected through these cookies is shared with advertisers.

Some of our other cookies may also be used to measure conversion events. For example, DoubleClick and Google Analytics cookies may also be used for this purpose.

  • Google Analytics cookies:

The website uses third-party analytical cookies, specifically those of the analytical and measurement service called Google Analytics, an analysis tool developed and managed by the company Google, Inc., which allows the traffic and use of the website to be analysed by defining activity metrics.

Google Analytics is the analytics tool that helps website and app owners understand how visitors interact with their properties. This tool may use a set of cookies to collect information and provide website usage statistics without personally identifying visitors to Google. The main cookie used by Google Analytics is "__ga".

In addition to providing website usage statistics, Google Analytics may also be used in conjunction with some of the advertising cookies described above to show more relevant ads on Google properties (e.g. Google search) and across the web.
