On this website we collect and use information as indicated in our Privacy Policy. One of the ways we collect information is through the use of a technology called "cookies". At The College Club, we use cookies for a variety of purposes.

1. What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of information (data blocks) that are sent to the hard drive of the user's device by a web server. The College Club uses cookies and tracking technologies to gather information and establish metrics about the user’s experience.

Cookies support the proper functioning of the website and help us understand how the user and other website visitors act in order to send advertising messages to a target audience.

A cookie is not a virus, a trojan, spam, spyware, or a pop-up window.

Along with cookies, pixel tags are also used, which are small portions of code embedded in this Page used for analytical purposes, among others:

  • Users who load and/or visit a web page.
  • In combination with cookies, identify the User who activated a particular pixel.
  • The result of our advertising campaigns.
  • Access to cookies.

These pixels are loaded in the page and not in the computer or User’s device. Pixel tags aim a similar objective to cookies. References to “cookies” in this privacy policy will mean cookies and pixel tags (both).
 

2. Information stored by cookies

Cookies do not usually store sensitive information such as credit card or bank details, photographs or personal information. The data they store is of technical nature, statistics, personal preferences, personalisation of content, etc.

The web server does not connect to you as a person, but it associates with your web browser. In fact, if you usually go online with the Chrome browser and try to browse the same website with the Firefox browser, you will see that the website does not realize that you are the same person because it is actually associating the information to the browser, not to the person.

3. Types of cookies

Cookies can be classified according to different criteria: 

a. According to the sender:  According to who manages the equipment or domain where the cookies are sent and who processes the data obtained

First-party cookies: they are sent to the user's terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the publisher itself (The College Club, in this case) and from which the service required by the user is provided.
Third-party cookies: they are sent to the user's terminal equipment from a computer or domain not managed by the publisher, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through cookies.

b. According to their life cycle:

Session cookies: temporary cookies that remain in the cookies file of the user's browser until the user leaves the website. These cookies are not stored on the user's hard drive and ultimately allow the publisher to provide a better using experience and improving the content.
Persistent cookies: these are stored on the user's hard drive and are read by the publisher's website each time the user visits the site again. However, this has a certain expiry date. After this date, the cookie will stop working. They are normally used to facilitate the purchase and registration services.

c. According to their purpose:

Technical cookies: they allow the user to navigate through a website, platform or application and use the different options or services featured in it.

 Examples: Controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, accessing restricted parts, remembering the elements that make up an order, etc.

Personalisation cookies: they allow the user to access the service with some general characteristics predefined according to a series of criteria in the user's terminal.

Examples: Language, the type of browser through which you access the service, the regional configuration from which you access the service, etc.

Analytical cookies: they allow the person responsible for them to monitor and analyse the behaviour of the users of the website to which they are linked. The information collected is used to measure the activity of the websites, applications or platforms. Its purpose is, once the data has been analysed, to introduce improvements to these websites and platforms.

Advertising cookies: they allow the management, in the most efficient way possible, of the advertising spaces that, where appropriate, the publisher has included on the basis of criteria such as the content edited or the frequency with which the advertisements are shown.Behavioural advertising cookies: they allow the management, in the most efficient way possible, of the advertising spaces that, where appropriate, the publisher has included in a website, application or platform from which it provides the requested service. These cookies store information on the behaviour of users obtained through the continuous observation of their browsing habits, which allows the development of a specific profile to display advertising based on it. It is also possible that when you visit a web page or open an email where an advertisement or promotion of our products or services is published, a cookie is installed in your browser. This allows us to later show you advertising related to the search you have made, to develop a control of our advertisements in relation, for example, to the number of times they are seen, where they appear, at what time they are seen, etc.

6. Deleting cookies

Depending on the browser used, this can be done in one way or another:

Google Chrome. Access the "Delete browsing data" option through the "History" menu. There, a pop-up menu will appear in which you can decide what information you want to delete, including cookies.
Firefox. Access the "Clear History" option through the "History" menu. A pop- up menu will appear where you can decide what information you want to delete, including cookies.
Android Chrome. Access the "Security and Privacy" option through the "Settings" menu. A pop-up menu will appear where you can decide what information you want to delete, including cookies.
Safari. Access the "Preferences" option through the "Safari" menu. A menu will appear, and you must follow the route "Security" > "Show Cookies" > "Delete all" / Select cookies to be deleted.

As can be seen, the functioning of the browsers is very similar. So, if the user uses a browser other than those mentioned, finding the functionality to delete cookie data should not be a problem. The user can also configure the system to delete all cookies automatically at the end of the browsing session.

How to disable cookies before browsing our websites

If, even after reading the above recommendation, the user decides to disable cookies, they can prevent their computer or device from storing cookies automatically. Below, we explain how to do this depending on the browser used:

Google Chrome. Access the "Customize and control Google Chrome" menu, click on the "Show advanced options" link and then click on the "Content settings" option. From there, the options available for cookies will be displayed.
Firefox. Access the "Tools" menu, click on "Options" and then on the "Privacy" tab. This is where the available options are displayed.
Internet Explorer. Access the "Tools" menu and click on the "Internet Options" option and, in the pop-up menu, click on the "Security" tab. You can choose one of the security levels already pre-set by Microsoft or customise your own security level.
Android Chrome. Access the "Settings" menu and click on the "Security and Privacy" option. In the pop-up menu, you can choose to accept or reject cookies.

The process is very similar for any other type of browser. The user can get information in the help menus of each one of them.

More information on cookies

The user has other alternatives to manage the use of cookies. One of them, for example, is to initiate a private navigation from their browser so that the system does not store unwanted information on the hard disk. If there is a storage of cookies and the user wants to check them, they can do it through the hard disk and even delete them one by one.

The Cookie Policy is part of The College Club's Privacy Policy.

Modification of the cookie policy

The College Club may unilaterally modify the Cookie Policy when there is a change in current legislation, jurisprudence or internal criteria. Any changes to this policy will be published in this section.

This cookie policy was last updated on the 11th November 2020.
