In this sense and with the aim of guaranteeing the user all the necessary information for a correct navigation, we make available to the user the following informative text on what cookies are, what type of cookies are used on our Website and how it is possible to configure or disable them.
1. WHAT IS A COOKIE?
Cookies are files containing small amounts of information that are downloaded to a user’s device when they visit a website.
Cookies are essential for the functioning of the Internet, as they offer technical solutions that allow the user to navigate through the different websites; they cannot damage the user’s equipment/device and, if activated in the configuration of your browser, they help to identify and resolve possible errors in the functioning of the Website. They can also be used for advertising or analytical purposes.
Specifically, GIRALDO uses its own cookies generated directly by this domain and cookies from third parties generated from other websites outside of GIRALDO, belonging to third party companies, for the specific purposes set out below. Should the provider use other cookies in the future with the aim of providing more and better services, the user will be informed of this.
(i) Our technical cookies
These cookies allow the user to navigate through the Website and use the different options or services that exist herein, such as, for example, controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, accessing restricted areas, remembering the elements that make up an order, carrying out the purchase process of an order or using security elements during navigation.
GIRALDO does not need your consent to install on your device these technical cookies as they are strictly necessary to activate the Website’s functions, and their use is based on the need to provide the requested services. If you disable or block all cookies in your browser, your navigation through the Website may not be optimal and some of the utilities available to the Website may not function properly.
(ii) YouTube technical cookies

GIRALDO does not need your consent to install on your device the cookies strictly necessary to activate the Website’s functions, and their use is based on the need to provide the requested services. If you disable or block all cookies in your browser, your navigation through the Website may not be optimal and some of the utilities available to the Website may not function properly.
(iii) Google Analytical cookies
These cookies collect information about how visitors use the website, for example, which pages they visit most frequently, whether they receive error messages from web pages, which sections of the website they access, or which buttons on the website they click. The information obtained by these cookies does not allow visitors to be identified. All information obtained is aggregated and therefore anonymous. The function of these cookies is to obtain statistics and reports that allow us to improve the functioning of the website.
GIRALDO uses analytical cookies from Google Analytics, a company domiciled in the United States, which will process the information collected solely for the purposes indicated and under the instructions of GIRALDO. The processing of this information implies an international transfer of data for which the necessary safeguards have been adopted, insofar as Google Analytics complies with the standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission and adheres to the standards of the EU-US Privacy Shield which, although this is not an officially recognised safeguard mechanism, it does serve to increase the security threshold. Please note in this respect that various European authorities, including the Article 29 Working Party, have confirmed that Google provides an adequate level of security: https://www.blog.google/products/google-cloud/eu-data-protection-authorities-confirm-compliance-google-cloud-commitments-international-data-flows/
