These files help the website to remember information about your visit and facilitate your next visit: maintaining the User’s actions and preferences for a certain period of time, maintaining or recognizing your username, the language in which want to browse the site or other settings. Cookies can be classified taking into account several criteria.

Considering their purpose, cookies can be:
Cookies strictly necessary – when they are necessary to ensure the functioning of the website and/or to ensure the availability of features that are requested by the user, or even to save your preferences regarding navigation on the same, whenever you use the same device and thus the request.
Personalization cookies – they are accessory in nature (not necessary for the website to function, but can improve its performance) and are used to customize the user’s browsing experience. Some of these cookies may transfer data outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”).
Analytical cookies – are accessory in nature and collect statistical information in order to help website owners to analyze their use and better understand the engagement of their visitors with the websites. Another of the functions for which these cookies may be used, together with some advertising cookies, is to allow the measurement of interactions with the advertisements we present. Some of these cookies may transfer data outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”).
Advertising cookies – are accessory in nature and aim to make advertising more attractive to users and advertisers, by selecting advertising based on what is relevant to the user, in order to improve reports on campaign performance and avoid showing ads that user has already seen or marked as not relevant. Some of these cookies may transfer data outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”).

Considering the lifetime of the cookies, they can be distinguished between:
Session cookies – are temporary in nature, being deleted from the cookie file when or shortly after closing the browser/application used to access the Digital Channels. Through this type of cookies, it is possible, for example, to analyze web traffic patterns, allowing us to identify problems, safeguard security and provide a better browsing experience.
Permanent cookies – unlike session cookies, these are not deleted when the browser or application is closed, remaining stored on the User’s devices. They are used whenever a new visit to the website is made, allowing, for example, to customize the browsing experience according to the User’s interests and to provide a more individualized service.

Considering the entity that places the cookies, they can be classified as follows:
Own cookies – are sent to the User’s device through equipment or domains managed by the CNAD and from which the service requested by the User is provided.
Third-party cookies – are sent to the User’s device from a device or domain managed by a third party over which the CNAD has no control. In these cases, the third party may process the data collected through cookies, including transferring them outside the EEA, and the CNAD may not be able to configure its operation and/or prevent the transfer of data collected by cookies.

In cases where cookies of certain categories may involve the transfer of data to countries outside the European Economic Area, such as the United States of America, please note that some of these countries do not have an adequacy decision from the European Commission and may not offer a level of protection of your data equivalent to that of the European Union.
