Cookies allow this website, among other things, to store and retrieve information about User decisions and habits. In Weblogs SL we use them to personalize the experience within our websites, to identify and remember the registered user, to facilitate navigation as well as to personalize the advertising campaigns that could be displayed while browsing. It is important to note that the use of cookies does not provide personal data of the user, who faces the Deliranto Restaurant remains anonymous.The user can configure his browser to not accept the use of cookies, and in this case the personalization of the experience would not apply although he may continue to access the contents of our websites with Normality. On the Wikipedia page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cookie_) it is possible to obtain more information about what cookies are and how they work.

What type of cookies does the web use?

Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into session or permanent cookies. The first expire when the user closes the browser. The second ones expire depending on when the objective for which they serve is fulfilled (for example, so that the user remains identified on the websites and services of the web) or when they are manually deleted.Additionally, depending on their objective, the Cookies can be classified as follows:

 

Performance cookies: This type of Cookie remembers your preferences for the tools found in the services, so you should not reconfigure the service every time you visit. As an example, this typology includes:

  • Volume adjustments of video or sound players.
  • The video transmission speeds compatible with your browser.

 

Geolocation cookies: these cookies are used to find out what country you are in when a website or service is requested. This Cookie is completely anonymous, and is only used to help orient the content to its location, such as language purposes. In no case do we register the exact location from which you are visiting us, nor do we store geolocation information on your devices.

 

Registration cookies: registration cookies are generated once the user has registered or subsequently started the session, and they are used to identify it on the web and services with the following objectives:

  • Keep the user identified so that, if you close a service or web, the browser or the computer and at another time or another day re-enter this service or web, you will remain identified, thus facilitating your navigation without having to identify again. This functionality can be suppressed if the user presses the “Exit” functionality, so this Cookie deletes and the next time the user enters the web, they must log in to be identified.
  • Check if the user is authorized to access certain services For example, to participate in a contest or write comments.
  • In addition, some services may use third-party connectors such as Facebook, Twitter or Google. When the user registers in a service with credentials of a social network or third-party identification system, he authorizes it to keep a persistent cookie that remembers his identity and guarantees access to the web until it expires. The user can delete this cookie and revoke access to the web through social networks or third-party identification system by updating their preferences in the social network that you specify.

 

Analytical cookies: every time a user visits a website or service, a tool from an external provider (Google Analytics) generates an analytical cookie on the user’s device. This cookie that is only generated in the visit, will serve in future visits to the services of Weblogs SL to identify the visitor anonymously. The main objectives pursued are:

  • Allow the anonymous identification of navigating users through the “Cookie” (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate counting of the number of visitors and their trend over time.
  • Anonymously, the most visited content and therefore more attractive to users.
  • Know if the user who is accessing is new or repeats a visit.

 

Important: Unless the User decides to register the cookie, it will never be associated with any personal data. I can identify it. These cookies will only be used for statistical purposes in order to collect metrics about the use of our websites.More information about the privacy policy of these analytical tools at: Google Analytics
