What are Cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of information, held in simple text files, stored on users’ computer when they visit a website. These files record the activities of users during their browsing time as well as their interaction with a website.

While the cookie itself does not contain personal information, it enables the website to track your use of it and relates such use to the information that you have provided to it.

Information on you collected through cookies may include your IP-address, date and time of visit, address of the websites visited previously, features of the operating system of the browsing device, visited sub-sites, functions used and time spent on the Website and its sub-pages. Tracking information is used to gather data on user demographics and website traffic patterns on an aggregate basis and is not connected to the identities or other personal information of individual users.

Types of Cookies

In terms of functionality, there are technical or functional cookies, necessary to ensure the proper operation of the website and to make all its content available to you, or other cookies with certain convenience functions such as remembering certain settings (personalisation cookies), or serving advertising or analytical purposes, or enhancing your experience optimising the website (performance cookies).

In terms of timing, some cookies are only valid for your current visit and by the end of the session, or when closing the browser, are deleted automatically (session cookies), while others remain on your computer or browser until deletion (persistent cookies).

In terms of managing entities, some cookies are used by the website’s owner as data controller, while others by third-party data controllers or third-party service providers acting as data processors.

Cookies used by OW and purposes

OW uses both its own cookies generated directly by this domain and third-party cookies generated from websites belonging to third party companies, for the specific purposes set out below. Third-party cookies are sent to your device from a third-party device or domain over which we have no control. In such cases, the third party may process the data collected by cookies, including transferring them outside the EEA. When doing so, third parties are acting independently from OW, for which OW is not responsible, so in relation to the use of your data by them, you are kindly advised to obtain information directly from them.

Cookies used include Analytics cookies, YouTube cookies for the videos displayed on the Website, and WordPress cookies that allow the Website to implement or change the content in real-time. We do not use advertising cookies.

  • Our necessary (technical) cookies: allow the user to navigate through our Website as well as the use of the different options or services that the Website offers (for example, control traffic and data communication, identify the session, access restricted areas, control fraud linked to the security of the service, apply for registration or participation in an event, use security features during navigation, store content for broadcasting of video or sound, enable dynamic content such as animation of loading a text or image or share content through social networks). We do not need your consent to install on your device the cookies necessary to activate the functionalities of the Website. If you disable or block all cookies in your browser, your browsing may not be optimal and some of the functionalities of the Website may not work properly.
  • Our Customization cookies: allow the recording of information needed to access services with certain characteristics that may differentiate your experience to that of other users (such as language settings, number of results displayed when performing a search, aspect or content of the service based on the type of browser you use or the region from where the service is accessed, etc.). When this personalisation is directly requested by you (e.g., by selecting a specific language by clicking the corresponding item), these types of cookies shall be considered as a service expressly requested by the user and shall hence be used exclusively for the referred purpose without the need for us to request further express consent to that end. Some of these cookies may transfer your data outside the EEA.
  • Our Analytics cookies: allow collecting information about how you browse (for example, how you use our Website, which pages you visit, whether you receive error messages, which sections of the Website you access or which buttons on the Website you click). The information obtained by these cookies does not allow users to be identified. All information obtained is aggregated and therefore anonymous. We use them with the aim of obtaining statistics and reports that make it possible to improve the functioning of the Website. These cookies are only installed on your device when you accept them. Some of these cookies may transfer your data outside of the EEA.

Legal bases

In case of necessary or functional cookies, the legal basis of data processing is our legitimate interest in properly operating the Website and protecting it from malicious activities. In case of other cookies, the legal basis of data processing is your consent, which may be provided by the cookie settings on the Website. When the legal basis of the processing is consent, you can withdraw your consent at any time, but the withdrawal shall not affect the lawfulness of the previous processing.

Retention period

The cookies used by OW will be retained on your device for the time necessary for the purpose for which they were installed, for a maximum of 2 years, unless you decide to delete them through the configuration options of your browser (see below).
