4. Frequently asked questions for Cookies

Why do so many warnings now appear about the use of cookies?

In 2012 a modification was introduced in article 22.2 of the Law on Services of the Information Society and Electronic Commerce (LSSICE) of 2002. Until then, it was assumed that web pages warned of the use of cookies in the texts that included under headings of the style “Legal notice”, “Conditions of use”, “Terms of use”, “Data protection policy”… But it was considered insufficient. After the 2012 modification, it was established that the user must consent to the use of cookies, after being duly informed of the purposes for which they are used.

What are the fines for breaching the cookie regulations?

Minor infractions carry fines of up to 30.000€ and serious ones can reach 150.000€, although the jurisprudence has never reached these extremes, normally establishing amounts between 500€ and 25.000€.

Can I remove cookies from my computer?

Yes, you can control or delete cookies whenever you want, although this may cause you to experience different behavior on the web, and you can also configure most browsers to stop accepting them. In case you reject or delete them, some functionalities of the web may not work correctly.

Are cookies a danger to my computer?

No, a cookie is a text file, it is not a program or plugin. It cannot be used as a virus and your hard drive cannot be accessed. It is the browser itself and not a person that saves the cookie of a web page when necessary.

Can cookies fill up my hard drive?

Although cookies take up very little space (few kilobytes), as you browse the Internet, the accumulation of these can occupy a relatively large space on the hard drive. That is why both browsers and operating systems have their own automatic systems to prevent this from happening, usually with a maximum number of cookies that can be stored. When that number is exceeded, the browser will automatically remove those that have been used the least.

Who must comply with this regulation?

  • The corporate pages of the companies.
  • The corporate pages of self-employed professionals, regardless of whether they are used to report on their business or as online stores.
  • Online stores and other electronic commerce platforms.
  • The media or individual blogs that include some type of advertising.

This applies both to companies and professionals established in Spain and to those foreign websites aimed at the Spanish public.

5. Modifications of the cookie policy

This cookie policy may be modified, always in the terms permitted by current Spanish legislation. For this reason, we recommend that you periodically review the cookie policy of our website.
