Thank you for deciding to visit us.

We want you to have the best possible experience on our website and for that reason we have written our Cookies Policy as clearly as possible.


What is a Cookie

Cookies are files which contain small amounts of information that are downloaded onto a user’s device (computer, tablet or phone) when he/she uses a website. The main purpose of a cookie is to recognise a user every time he/she accesses ASTILLEROS CANARIOS, S.A., and also allows us to improve the quality of our website and make it easier to use.

Cookies are essential for the internet to function; they do not damage a user’s computer/mobile device and, if they are active in your browser’s settings, they help us to identify and resolve possible operating errors on http://www.astican.es.


Types of Cookies

There are several types of cookies. All of them function in the same way but there are slight differences:

  1. Session Cookies. Session Cookies only exist during your visit to our website and are erased when you close the browser. Their main aim is to identify the type of device used and to support the security of the website and its basic functionality. They do not contain any personal data with which we could identify someone.

  2. Persistent or Permanent Cookies. These cookies are stored on the hard drive of the user’s device and our website reads them on each subsequent visit made to http://www.astican.es; they have a “lifetime” or certain time of expiry at the end of which they stop working. They allow us to identify your actions and preferences, analyse visits and they help us to understand how users reach our website and how we can improve our services.

  3. Functional Cookies. These allow http://www.astican.es to record decisions made by the user such as his login or user id. The information that these cookies collect is anonymized (i.e. they do not hold your name, address o other data).

  4. Third-party Cookies. Third-party cookies are cookies stored by a domain that is different to that of the website visited, for example, those used by social networks (such as Facebook) or by external content (such as Google Maps). Some publicity firms also use these types of files to track your visits to the sites in which they advertise.

  5. Analytical Cookies. The aim of these cookies is the periodic maintenance of the website and to guarantee the best performance and service for the user by collecting data about his/her activity.
