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 technology called "cookies." At The College Club, we use cookies for various 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 through a web server. The College Club uses cookies and tracking technologies to collect information and establish user experience metrics.

Cookies support the proper functioning of the website and help to understand how the user and other visitors act to send advertising messages to a target audience.
A cookie is not a virus, nor is it a Trojan, nor is it spam, nor is it spyware, nor does it open pop-up windows. Along with cookies, pixel tags are also used, which are small portions of code embedded in this Page used for the analytical purpose, among others, of knowing:

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

These pixels are loaded on the page and not on the User's computer or terminal. Pixel tags achieve a similar effect to cookies and references to cookies in this privacy policy are both strictly speaking cookies and pixel tags.

  1. Information stored by cookies

Cookies do not usually store sensitive information, such as credit cards or bank details, photos, or personal information. The data they keep is technical, statistical, personal preferences, personalization of content, etc. The web server does not associate you as a person but rather your web browser. In fact, if you regularly browse 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 with the browser, not with person.

  1. Types of cookies

Cookies can be classified according to different criteria:

According to its issuer:

  • According to who manages the computer or domain where the cookies are sent and who processes the data obtained.
  • Own cookies: they are sent to the user's terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the editor 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 editor, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through cookies.

According to its life cycle:

  • Session cookies: temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of the user's browser until the user leaves the web page. These cookies are not recorded on the user's hard drive and, in the long run, allow the editor to offer a better experience in its use and improvement of the content.
  • Permanent cookies: they are stored on the user's hard drive and the publisher's website reads them every time the user visits the website again. However, the foregoing has a specific expiration date. After that date, the cookie will stop working. These are typically used to facilitate purchase and registration services.

According to its purpose:

  • Technical cookies: they allow the user to navigate through a web page, platform or application and the use of the different options or services that exist in it.
  • Examples: Control traffic and data communication, identify the session, access restricted access parts, remember the elements that make up an order, etc.
  • Personalization cookies: they allow the user to access the service with some predefined general characteristics based on 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 where you access the service, etc.
  • Analysis or measurement cookies: they allow the person responsible for them to monitor and analyze the behavior of the users of the web page to which they are linked. The information collected is intended to measure the activity of websites, applications or platforms. Its purpose is, once the data has been analyzed, to make improvements to said websites and platforms.
  • Advertising cookies: they allow the management, in the most efficient way possible, of the advertising spaces that, where appropriate, the editor has included based on criteria such as the edited content or the frequency in which the ads are displayed.
  • Behavioral advertising cookies: they allow the management, in the most efficient way possible,of the advertising spaces that, where appropriate, the editor has included in a web page, application or platform from which the requested service is provided. These cookies store information on the behavior 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. Likewise, it is possible that when visiting a web page or when opening an email where an advertisement or promotion about our products or services is published, a cookie is installed in your browser that helps us to later show you advertising related to the search you have made, develop a control of our ads in relation, for example, to the number of times they are seen, where they appear, what time they are seen, and so on.

  1. Elimination of cookies

It depends on the server that is used, it can be done in one way or another:

GOOGLE CHROME. The user accesses the option "Clear browsing data" through the "History" menu. There a pop-up menu will appear in which you can decide what information you want and delete, including cookies.
FIREFOX. The user accesses the option "Clear history" through the "History" menu. A pop-up menu will appear where you can decide what information you want to delete, including cookies.
ANDROID CHROME. The user accesses 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: The user accesses the "Preferences" option through the "Safari" menu. A menu will appear and you must follow the following path "Security"> "Show Cookies"> "Delete all" / Select cookies to delete.

As can be seen, the operation of the servers is very similar. So, if the user uses a server 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 previous recommendation, the user decides to disable cookies, you can make your computer or device not store cookies automatically. Next, we explain how to do it depending on the server that is used:

  • GOOGLE CHROME. The user accesses the "Customize and control Google Chrome" menu, clicks on the "Show advanced options" link and then clicks on the "Content settings" option. From there, the options available for cookies will be displayed.
  • FIREFOX. The user accesses the "Tools" menu, clicks on "options" and then on the "Privacy" tab. There are the available options.
  • INTERNET EXPLORER. The user accesses the "Tools" menu and clicks on the "Internet Options" option and, in the pop-up menu, clicks on the "Security" tab. You can choose one of the security levels already preset by Microsoft or customize your own security level.
  • ANDROID CHROME. The user accesses the “Settings” menu and clicks on the “Security and privacy” option and, in the pop-up menu, they can choose to accept cookies or not.

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