Use of cookies on the Alu-Stock websites and apps

In compliance with Spanish Law 34/2002, of 11 July, on Information Society and E-Commerce Services, we hereby inform you of the use of cookies on the Alu-Stock websites and applications, the purpose of which is to provide users with a simpler and enhanced browsing experience, by remembering the part of the website they visited, their username when registering, preferences and display settings, and by offering each user information that may be of interest to them.


What are cookies?

A cookie is a file that is downloaded to your computer or the device you are using (smartphone, tablet, smart TV, etc.) when accessing certain websites. Cookies allow a website, among other things, to store and retrieve information about the browsing habits of a user or their browsing computer/device and, depending on the information they contain and the way in which they use your computer/device, they can be used to recognise the user.

A cookie is stored on a computer or device in order to identify the browser while it interacts with our websites or apps. A website can install a cookie in the browser if the browser's preferences allow it. A browser only allows a website to access the cookies that it has installed, not those installed by other websites

Alu-Stock websites and apps use third-party cookies, which allow the collection of anonymous statistics about the visits received in order to monitor any advertising campaigns running at the time of the visit.


Why are they important?

  • From a technical point of view, they allow websites to work in a more efficient way and adapt to the preferences of users, such as by storing the language and currency of their country or detecting the device used to access them.
  • They establish levels of protection and security that prevent or hinder cyber attacks against the website and its users.
  • They provide media managers with statistics collected by the cookies, which they can use to improve the quality of the services and the experience of users.
  • They allow us to optimise the advertising we show users, meaning we offer them content which matches their interests.


What types of cookies does this website use?

  • Own cookies: These are cookies that are sent to the user's computer or device from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself and from which the service requested by the user is provided.
  • Third-party cookies: These are cookies that are sent to the user's computer or device from a computer or domain that is not managed by the publisher, but by another entity that processes the data collected by the cookies.
  • Session cookies: These are a type of cookie designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a website.
  • Persistent cookies: These are a type of cookie in which the data is stored on the computer or device and can be accessed and processed for a period set by the person responsible for the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years.
  • Analytic cookies: These are cookies that are processed either by us or by third parties. They allow us to quantify the number of users and thus measure and analyse how users use the service offered. To do this, we analyse your browsing on our website in order to improve the products or services we offer you.
  • Advertising cookies: These are cookies that allow any advertising areas a publisher has included on a website, app or platform on which it provides the service requested to be managed as effectively as possible based on criteria such as the published content or the frequency with which the advertisements are displayed.
  • Behavioural advertising cookies: These are cookies that allow any advertising areas a publisher has included on a website, app or platform on which it provides the service requested to be managed as effectively as possible. These cookies store information on the behaviour of users obtained through the continuous observation of their browsing habits, which allows the development of a specific profile in order to display advertising based on it.

It is also possible that when visiting a website or when opening an email where an advertisement or promotion about our products or services is published, a cookie will be installed in your browser that will serve to show you advertising later that is related to the search you have made, monitor our advertisements in relation, for example, to the number of times they are viewed, where they appear, what time they are viewed, etc.


Revocation and deletion of cookies

You can allow, block or delete the cookies installed on your computer by configuring the options of the browser installed on your computer.

Acceptance of cookies

If you continue browsing once you have been informed about the cookie policy, we will take this to mean you accept the use of cookies by the website and apps. However, if you wish, you can change the cookie settings at any time, setting your browser to accept or refuse the cookies you receive or for your browser to notify you when a server wants to save a cookie. We inform you that if you block or do not accept the installation of cookies, certain services may not be available to you and you may not be able to access certain services or take full advantage of everything that our websites and apps have to offer.
