Cookies, in terms of their period, can be divided into session or permanent Cookies. The first expire when the User closes the browser. The second expire when the purpose for which they serve is achieved (for example, to keep the User logged in iVoox Services or when they are manually deleted).
REGISTER’S COOKIES: Log Cookies are generated once the User has been registered or he has opened his session subsequently, and they are used to identify the Services with the following objectives:
Keep the User identified so that, if he closes a Service, and at another time or day he reenters in that Service, he will already be identified, facilitating then his navigation without having to identify again. This functionality can be deleted if the User clicks on the function "log out”, so that this Cookie is deleted and the next time he enters the Service, the User will have to log in to be identified.
In addition, some Services may use connectors with social networks such as Facebook. When the User registers a Service with a social network credentials, he authorizes the social network to save a persistent Cookie that remembers his identity and guarantees his access to the Services until it expires. The User can delete this Cookie and revoke the access to the Services through social networks updating his preferences in the specific social network.
ANALITYC’S COOKIES: Each time a User visits a Service, a tool from an external provider (specifically Google Analytics, Comscore and similar that can be added to this list in case that they vary in relation to the current) generates an analytic Cookie on the User’s computer. This Cookie is only generated on the visit, and will serve in future visits to iVoox Services to identify to the visitor anonymously. The main objectives are:
- Enable anonymous identification of the browsing Users via the “Cookie” (identify browsers and devices, not people) and, therefore, an approximate accounting of the number of visitors and its trend over time.
- Anonymously identify the most visited content and, therefore, the most attractive for Users
- To know whether it is a new user or not.
- Google analytics: http://www.google.es/intl/es/analytics/privacyoverview.html
Important: Unless the User decides to register for a Service of iVoox, the “Cookie” will never be associated with any personal information that can identify him. These Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that help to optimize Users experience on the site.
ADS’S COOKIES: This type of “Cookies” allow to expand the information of ads shown to every anonymous User on iVoox Services. Among others, the duration or frequency of display of advertising positions is stored, the interaction with them, or the browsing patterns or behaviors of the User as they help to define a profile of advertising interest. In this way, they let you deliver advertising related to the interests of the User.
THIRD PARTY ADS’S COOKIES: Besides the advertising managed by iVoox Services, iVoox.com offers advertisers the option of serving ads through third parties (“Ad-Servers”). In this way, these third parties may store Cookies which are sent from the browsers of Users from iVoox Services, as well as they can access to the saved information.
The companies that generate these Cookies have their own privacy policies. DoubleClick (Google) is one of them, to manage these services. For more information, you can see http://www.google.es/policies/privacy/ads/#toc-doubleclick y a http://www.google.es/policies/privacy/ads/.
