Cookies Policy

 

Our website www.bombform.com uses “cookies” in order to acquire information on use, improve the user’s experience and check that everything is working correctly.

What is a “cookie”?

A “cookie” is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in a user’s web browser while the user is browsing that website. Every time the user loads the website, the browser sends the cookie back to the server to notify the website of the user’s previous activity. Cookies have a variety of functions which include collecting and  retaining information on the user’s preferences, and generally making the website easier to use through personalisation of content. 

There are several different types of cookies:

1.-First-party and third-party cookies: dependent upon who manages the domain specified in the cookie. The “party” refers to the website that is placing the cookie. If the website and the domain of the cookie are the same, then this is a first-party cookie. If the website and the domain of the cookie are different, then this is a third-party cookie.

2.-Session cookies and persistent cookies: dependent upon the length of time the cookie remains in the user’s browser.

3.-Technical cookies, personalised cookies, testing cookies, cookies for advertising and behavioural advertising cookies: dependent upon what the cookies are used for.

  • Technical cookies: These allow the user to browse the webpage or application and use the various options and services available. They are used for traffic control and data communication, identifing sessions and accessing parts of the web with restricted access.
  • Personalised cookies: These allow the user to access a service whose general function is determined by the computer terminal or by the user. Language, for example, depends on the type of browser used to access a service or alter the design of a webpage. 
  • Testing cookies: Whether they are owned by first or third parties, these allow us to determine the number of users and as such carry out a statistical analysis of the use of a service. We can analyse browsing data for our webpage and improve on the products and services that we offer.
  • Advertising cookies: These allow us to efficiently manage the advertising space included on the webpage, application or platform from which the service is activated according to certain criteria, such as edited content or the frequency of advertisements.
  • Behavioural advertising cookies: These allow us to efficiently manage the advertising space included on the webpage, application or platform from which the service is activated. These cookies contain information on the habits of users, obtained through continuous observation of their browsing preferences. Accurate profiles can be created, allowing us to show the most relevant advertising.
