5. Cookies Policy
What are local data storage, cookies and similar technology?
In this policy we will refer jointly to all these techniques as local data storage. Local data storage means saving different types of data on your device via your web browser. Locally stored data may refer to how you browse our websites, what browser you use, the user’s configuration, etc.
Cookies are a local data storage method. Cookies are small text files that are sent to and stored on the user’s computer, mobile phone, tablet or other online access device, allowing us to recognize their web browser. They also serve to obtain information about their browsing and can be used to recognize users. They all fulfil the same function, to provide information about the user’s browsing, and may be used to determine which adverts should be displayed in your web browser.
Users should bear in mind that some cookies are necessary for certain functionalities of the Portal to operate properly. If you decide to block certain cookies, this may totally or partially affect the ordinary functioning of the website.
Why do we use local data storage?
The Portal uses local data storage, as in the case of cookies, for the following purposes:
To customize services in your browser (e.g., to remember the country you are connecting from, your language, internet connection speed, etc.)
To improve our services and the user experience (e.g., how often the website has been visited, the traffic to the different pages, etc.)
To display advertising (e.g., how often a user has seen an advert).
What types of cookies do we use?
Cookies on the Portal change frequently. We currently use session cookies and persistent cookies, which may in turn be first- or third-party cookies.
Session cookies are designed to gather and store data while users access the website. They are typically used to store information that it is of interest to retain to provide the service requested by the user in one single session.
Persistent cookies are a type of cookie where the data remains stored on the terminal and can be accessed and processed for a period defined by the cookie controller itself, which may range from several minutes to several years.
First-party cookies are those sent to the user’s terminal, created or managed by the controller of the Portal. The Portal uses persistent first-party cookies (customization cookies) for users to access the service with certain general predefined characteristics on their terminal, or others that users themselves can define. In this case, the purpose is to allow and store the user’s browsing language.
Third-party cookies are those administrated by analytical service providers other than Ufinet. Examples of technologies that we use:
Doubleclick (advertising cookies): They manage the advertising spaces that users see when they access the website. These cookies, which may vary depending on the campaign in force, serve to measure the effectiveness of online campaigns.
Google Analytics (analytical cookies): They serve to monitor and analyze the behavior of users on websites. The information gathered is used to measure activity on the Portal and to generate user browsing profiles, to make improvements to the service.
Quartalflife (technical social cookies): Used for the monitoring and analysis of external social media networks. Their function is to monitor user interaction.
How can I manage local data storage?
We recommend that you consult your browser’s Help section for information about the different options as to how to administer cookies. There are also special programs that have been created specifically to manage cookies.
Updates and changes to the Cookies Policy.
Our Portal (www.ufinet.com) may modify this Cookies Policy in accordance with new legislative or regulatory demands or in order to adapt the policy to any instructions issued by the Spanish Data Protection Agency (the “AEPD”).

Other companies of the Ufinet Group: Any person who is a citizen of the European Union, or is a resident in the European Union, and wishes to take part in the recruitment processes of the Ufinet Group outside the European Economic Area (EEA) (or in those forms where the option of a country located outside the EEA is selected) must be aware when they complete our forms that said information will be transferred to the countries in question.

9. Security measures:
The security measures adopted at Ufinet are those required by law for each type of processing.

We transfer information about people wishing to take part in our recruitment processes in those countries where Ufinet provides services outside the European Economic Area (EEA), or those who complete forms indicating countries that are located outside the EEA. Since some of these countries do not have the same levels of alignment in their Personal Data Protection regulations, we have adopted the necessary technical and contractual measures to offer a similar level of protection to that which exists in the country of origin.
12. Our website may connect to third-party links or websites
13. Contact us: How can you exercise your rights as a User?
If the processing is based on your consent, you will be entitled to revoke this at any time, without this affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent prior to the withdrawal thereof.
