Type and purpose of the COOKIES used on the WEBSITE

The WEBSITE uses its own COOKIES (sent to the USER's terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by CIC nanoGUNE and from which it provides its services) and third party COOKIES (sent to the USER's terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by another entity unrelated to CIC nanoGUNE) of the following types:

  • Technical COOKIES: These are those that allow the user to browse through the WEBSITE and use the different options or services available on it, including those used to allow the management and operation of the WEBSITE and enable its functions and services, such as, for example, controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, accessing parts of restricted access, remembering the elements that make up an order, carrying out the process of purchasing an order, managing payment, controlling fraud linked to the security of the service, or making the request to register or participate in an event.
  • Preference or customisation COOKIES: These are those that allow the USER to remember information so that he/she can access the service with certain characteristics that can differentiate his/her experience from that of other USERS, such as, for example, the language, the number of results to be shown when the user carries out a search, the appearance or content of the service depending on the type of browser used or the region from which they access the service.
  • Analysis or measurement COOKIES: These are those that allow the person responsible for them to monitor and analyse the behaviour of the USER on the WEBSITE, including the quantification of ad impacts. The information collected through this type of COOKIES is used to measure the activity of the WEBSITE in order to include improvements based on the analysis of the data on use by the USERS.
  • Behavioural advertising COOKIES: These are those that store information on the behaviour of USERS obtained through continuous observation of their browsing habits, which allows the development of a specific profile to display advertising based on this.

They are usually configured to respond to actions taken by you to receive services, such as adjusting your privacy preferences, logging into the site, or filling out forms.

Analysis or measurement COOKIES

COOKIES that allow us to count visits and circulation sources to measure and improve the performance of our WEBSITE. They help us know which pages are the most or least popular and see how many people visit the WEBSITE.

Behavioural advertising COOKIES

COOKIES placed by our advertising partners. These businesses can use them to profile your interests and show you relevant ads on other websites. If you do not allow these cookies, you will have less targeted advertising.

Third-party COOKIES


The Website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service developed by Google which allows CIC nanoGUNE to know how Users interact with the WEBSITE and report on browsing trends without identifying individual Users.

The information generated by the Google Analytics COOKIES will be directly collected and stored by Google on its own servers. Consequently, this collection of information on the use of the WEBSITE by the USER and the determination of the purpose of the processing and use of the information collected corresponds exclusively to Google, acting on its own behalf, while CIC nanoGUNE has no access whatsoever to this information, but only to the aggregate and anonymous information provided by Google through its reports.
