These files help the website to memorize information about your visit and to facilitate your next visit: keeping the actions and preferences of Users for a certain period of time, keeping or recognizing your username, the language in which you want to navigate on the site or other settings.

Cookies can be classified taking into account several criteria.

  • (b) Analytical cookies - these are incidental in nature and collect statistical information to help website owners analyze website usage and better understand their visitors' engagement with websites.

Some of these cookies may transfer data outside the European Economic Area ("EEA").
  • (c) Personalization cookies - these are of an accessory nature (not necessary for the functioning of the website, but may improve its performance) and are used to personalize the user's browsing experience. Some of these cookies may transfer data outside the EEA.
  • (d) Advertising Cookies - these are incidental in nature and aim to make advertising more attractive to users and advertisers by selecting advertisements based on what is relevant to you, to improve reporting on campaign performance and to avoid showing advertisements that you have already seen or flagged as not relevant. Some of these cookies may transfer data outside the EEA. Considering the lifetime of cookies, they can be distinguished between:
  • (a) Session cookies - these are temporary and are deleted from the cookie file when or shortly after the browser or application used to access the Digital Channels is closed. Through this type of cookies it is possible, for example, to analyze web traffic patterns, allowing us to identify problems, safeguard security and provide a better browsing experience.
  • (b) Permanent cookies - unlike session cookies, these are not deleted when the browser or application is closed, but remain stored on the User's devices. They are used every time a new visit is made to the website, allowing, for example, to customize the browsing experience according to the User's interests and to provide a more individualized service. Considering the entity that places the cookies, they can be classified as follows:
  • (a) Own Cookies - are sent to the User's device through equipment or domains managed by EDP Comercial and from which the service requested by the User is provided.
  • (b) Third-party Cookies - are sent to the User's device from a device or domain managed by a third party entity over which Mindout has no control. In these cases, the third party may process the data collected through the cookies, including transferring it outside the EEA and Mindout may not be able to configure its operation and/or prevent the transfer of the data collected by the cookies.

Where cookies of certain categories may involve the transfer of data to countries outside the European Economic Area, such as the United States of America, please note that some of these countries do not have a European Commission adequacy decision and may not offer a level of protection of your data equivalent to that in the European Union.
