Cookies and other technical information

The purpose of the use of cookies is to offer you a more comfortable browsing experience. To this end, we inform you that, as on other websites, cookies or other similar technologies may be used on this website to:

  1. To provide, develop, maintain, customise, personalise, protect and improve our digital services and their content.
  2. To perform analytics, including analytics and reporting on the use and performance of our digital services and any advertisements displayed on or provided through them.
  3. Protect against, identify and prevent fraud and other illegal activities.
  4. Create aggregated data on groups or categories of our users (including advertising groups).
  5. That we, our partners and third-party service providers may provide, select, offer, market or customise our offerings or the offerings of our customers and partners.

By browsing and continuing on our website you are consenting to the use of cookies, for the periods indicated below and under the conditions contained in this cookie policy. Below, we indicate what cookies are, the use we make of them and the options you have to manage them.


Cookies are small files that a website places on your computer, phone or any other device containing information about your browsing on that website. Cookies are installed while browsing the Internet, either by the websites you visit or by third parties with which the website is related. Through cookies, the following information, among others, can be obtained: the date and time of visits to the website, the pages viewed, the time you have been on our website and the sites visited just before.

Below, cookies are classified according to a series of categories. However, it should be noted that the same cookie may be included in more than one category.

Depending on the length of time they remain activated in the terminal equipment, we can distinguish:

  • Session cookies: These are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie space of your computer until you close the browser, so that none is recorded on the user's disk. The information obtained through these cookies is used to enable operational management with each of the users who are simultaneously accessing the website.
  • Persistent cookies: These are cookies that remain stored in the cookie space of your computer once the browser is closed and for a defined period of time that can range from minutes to years, so they help websites to remember your information and settings when you visit them later and to provide a commercial service (offer those products or services related to previous visits).

Depending on the entity that manages the equipment or domain from which the cookies are sent and processes the data obtained, we can distinguish:

  • First-party or own cookies: These are cookies generated by the website you are visiting.
  • Third-party cookies: These are cookies that are received when browsing that website, but which have been generated by a third-party service that is hosted on the website. For example, this would be the case of the cookie used in an advertisement or advertising banner found on the website we are visiting or the one used by a visitor counter hired by the website we are visiting.

Depending on the purpose for which the data obtained through cookies are processed, we can distinguish between:

  • Technical cookies: These are also known as "strictly necessary" cookies. They allow the user to browse through a website, platform or application and use the different options or services that exist on it, for example, control traffic and data communication, identify the session, access restricted areas, keep a record of preferences, remember the elements that make up an order, carry out the purchase process of an order, make the application for registration or participation in an event, use security features while browsing, store content for broadcasting videos or sound or share them through social networks. If you disable them, it is likely that some of the functions of the Digital Services will not work properly.
  • Personalisation cookies: These allow each user to configure aspects such as the language of the web page, display formats, etc.
  • Analysis or performance cookies: These cookies allow the party responsible for them to monitor and analyse the behaviour of the users of the websites to which they are linked in order to improve performance. Therefore, they allow us to measure the number of visits and browsing criteria of different areas of the website, application or platform and allow us to draw up browsing profiles of the users of these websites, applications and platforms, in order to introduce improvements based on the analysis of the usage data collected from the users of the service.
  • Advertising Cookies: These are those that allow the management, in the most effective way possible, of the advertising spaces that, where appropriate, the publisher has included on a website, application or platform from which it provides the requested service based on criteria such as the edited content or the frequency at which the ads are displayed. There may be authorised third parties who may also set cookies when the user interacts with VISUAMED services. These third parties include, for example, search engines, measurement and analysis service providers or social networks. They use cookies when they serve advertising content, including advertisements relevant to your interests, to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements.
  • Behavioural advertising cookies: These enable the implementation of efficiency parameters in the advertising offered on the web pages, based on information about the behaviour of users obtained through the continuous observation of their browsing habits, which enables the development of a specific profile to display advertising based on the same.

VISUAMED currently has only one cookie, which has the following characteristics:

If the user deletes all cookies from this website, he will also delete the configuration options he has chosen regarding our cookies (acceptance, rejection or revocation of their use).

Here are some examples of how to make these configurations in the different browsers:


Some of our digital services may use locally stored objects ("LSOs") to provide certain content, for example, video on demand or a better user experience. Adobe Flash Player and similar applications use this technology to remember settings, preferences and usage in a similar way to browser cookies. Flash cookies are not managed by your web browser, but you can access Flash tools to manage them from Adobe's website. Your browser may also offer other tools to remove or reject other LSOs. Check your browser's help menu or settings for more information.


We may update the Cookie Policy of our website. We therefore recommend that you review this policy each time you access our website in order to be properly informed about how and what we use cookies for.
