Privacy Policy

This website, like most websites on the Internet, uses Cookies to improve and optimise the user experience. Below you will find detailed information on what Cookies are, what type of Cookies this website uses, how you can disable them in your browser and how to specifically block the installation of third party Cookies.

What are Cookies?

Cookies are files that websites or applications install on the user’s browser or device (smartphone, tablet or connected TV) during their journey through the pages of the site or application, and serve to store information about their visit. Like most sites on the internet, this website uses Cookies to:

  • Ensure that web pages can function correctly.
  • Store preferences, such as the language you have selected or the font size.
  • Understand the user’s browsing experience.
  • Collect anonymous statistical information, such as which pages the user has visited or how long they have stayed on the website.

The use of Cookies makes it possible to optimise browsing, adapting the information and services offered to the user’s interests, in order to provide them with a better experience whenever they visit the website. This website uses Cookies to function, adapt and facilitate the user’s browsing as much as possible.

Types, purpose and operation

Cookies, depending on their permanence, can be divided into session or permanent cookies. The former expire when the user closes the browser. The latter expire when the purpose for which they are used is fulfilled (for example, for the user to remain identified on the website) or when they are manually deleted. Additionally, depending on their purpose, Cookies can be classified as follows:

  • Strictly necessary (technical): These are essential for the correct functioning of the page. They are normally generated when the user accesses the website or logs on to it and are used to identify the user on the website for the following purposes:
  • To keep the user identified so that, if he/she leaves the website, browser or device and at another time accesses the website again, he/she will continue to be identified, thus facilitating browsing without having to identify him/herself again.
  • To check whether the user is authorised to access certain services or areas of the website.
  • Performance: These are used to improve the browsing experience and optimise the functioning of the website, for example, to store service configurations, or to store the purchase made in a shopping cart.
  • Advertising: These are those that collect information about the advertisements shown to users of the website. They can be of two types:
  • Anonymous: They only collect information about the advertising spaces displayed on the website, regardless of the user accessing the website, i.e. without expressly identifying him/her.
  • Personalised: They collect personal information about the user of the website by a third party, for the personalisation of these advertising spaces.
  • Geo-location cookies: These Cookies are used to find out in which country or region the user is located when accessing a website service in order to offer content or services appropriate to their location.
    Analytical: These cookies collect information about the user’s browsing experience on the website, normally anonymously, although sometimes they also allow the user to be uniquely and unequivocally identified in order to obtain reports on the interests of users in the services offered by the website.

MoodleSession: Used to store if the user is logged-in in the online course.

Disabling the use of Cookies

If the user so wishes, it is possible to stop accepting browser Cookies, or to stop accepting Cookies from a particular service. All modern browsers allow you to change the Cookie settings. These settings are normally found in the «Options» or «Preferences» menu of the browser. The user may, at any time, disable the use of Cookies on this website by means of: Browser settings, for example: Google Chrome: Internet Explorer: Mozilla Firefox: Apple Safari:

What happens when I disable Cookies?

Some functionalities and services may be disabled or may behave differently than expected, such as, for example, remaining identified, keeping purchases in the «shopping cart» in an e-commerce service or receiving information directed to your location, among others. If you disable the use of Cookies on this website it is likely that you will no longer be able to access certain areas of the website or that your browsing experience on the website will be significantly degraded.

Updating the Cookies Policy

EFA MALVESÍA may modify this Cookies Policy in accordance with legislative or regulatory requirements, or in order to adapt this policy to the instructions issued by the Spanish Data Protection Agency, for which reason users are advised to visit it periodically. When significant changes are made to this Cookie Policy, users will be notified either via the website or by e-mail to registered users.
