Cookie policy

We use cookies to provide you with a better service and a better browsing experience, as well as so that Google can show you advertising based on your browsing habits (to which Google obliges all websites that, like us, we use some of its services). We are responsible for the installation of cookies that we use and that we make with the data obtained through them, either own cookies or third party cookies. We have structured this policy in the following dropdown menus to facilitate access to points of your interest, however, we recommend that you read it in its entirety.

Cookies are small text files that are stored in your browser when you visit our website. These files contain information about your browsing and interaction with our website, with the purpose of making your user experience more efficient and being able to show you advertising based on your browsing habits. Some cookies are essential for the proper functioning of our website, such as technical cookies or customization of the user interface, and others, such as analysis cookies or behavioural advertising (or marketing), require us to inform you and get your consent before we can use them.

LocalStorage and SessionStorage (also known as HTML cookies) are two data storage spaces located on your device’s browser and, like cookies, may be ours (when created by our own website) or by third parties (when created by our service providers or partners). The main difference between the two spaces is that LocalStorage stores the information indefinitely or until you decide to clean the browser data, while SessionStorage stores information for as long as the tab where our website is being used remains open, and, once closed, the information is deleted. The difference with cookies, is that these two spaces allow to store more information than cookies without impacting the performance of our website.

More information is available here.

In general, the level of risk of cookies depends on the type of cookies, and whether they are first- or third-party cookies. Most cookies are not dangerous. Specifically:

Technical and preference cookies have more benefits than risks

The Article 29 Working Party (former WG29 and current European Data Protection Board) in its Opinion 4/2012, “on the exemption of the consent requeriment for cookies“, considers that they do not pose a risk for you and exempts us from the obligation to obtain your prior consent for all cookies that:

  • Are necessary for proper communications transmitted over a network between the user and the servers hosting the web; and to all those which
  • Are necessary to provide specific functionality explicitly requested by the user.

This exemption from the obligation to base the legality of its use on your consent, as it does not represent risk for you, is also reflected in the cookie guides published by most of the Data Protection Agencies of the EU countries.

The WG29 even defined purposes that it explicitly considers present more benefits than risks for you:

Purpose of cookies explicitly excluded from informed consent

Where it respects its purpose, the WG29 explicitly excludes the following cookies from the obligation to obtain the visitor’s informed consent:

  • Cookies called “user input”, which are usually used to track the user’s actions when filling in the online forms of an http session, or to remember the shopping cart that the user has selected in an e-commerce,
  • Session cookies that are used for authentication or user identification, that store a kind of token (witness that the user is who he claims to be and has already been authenticated) to prevent you from having to give your username and password on each page you request that has access restricted,
  • User security cookies, introduced specifically to reinforce the security of the service explicitly requested by the user. For example, to detect erroneous and repeated attempts to connect to a website, or abuse,
  • Media player session cookies,
  • Session cookies to balance the load of information systems,
  • User interface customization cookies, such as the one used to remember your preferred language, and 
  • Certain add-on cookies (plug-ins) to exchange social content.

In general, in those cases in which a website offers its visitors a service, to use cookies exclusively for the purposes for which it is not necessary to obtain consent, listed above, whether they are first- or third-party cookies, it will not be necessary for the website manager to inform the visitor of its use or to obtain his/her consent.

Statistical cookies DO NOT pose an appreciable risk

With regard to the processing of data collected through analytics cookies, the above-mentioned opinion of the current European Data Protection Board stated that, although they are not exempted from the duty to obtain consent for their use, they are unlikely to pose a risk to the privacy of users as long as they are first-party cookies, which process aggregated data for a strictly statistical purpose, the provision of information on its uses and the possibility for users to express their refusal to use it.

First-party cookies do not usually carry an appreciable risk for you

First-party cookies are generated by our website, while third parties are generated by our service providers independently of us, and it is these independent providers who define the purposes and means of the treatments they perform.

Our sole responsibility for third-party cookies is the necessary collaboration of our website in the placement of these cookies on your computer, placement to which we will normally be required in order to use the services provided to us by third parties (for example, to check that you are not a robot, and so, to avoid requests or comments that could be sent to us through the forms on our website, to harm the attention of the authentic requests).

Technical cookies are those that allow the user to navigate through a website, platform or application as well as the use of the different options or services that exist in it, including the management and operation of the website and the enabling of its functions and services (for example, identifying their session, accessing parts of the website that have restricted access, remembering the elements that make up your order, making the purchase process of your order, managing your payment, etc.). The website cannot function properly without these cookies which are deemed necessary.

This website creates storage space in your device’s browser, using the SessionStorage object, that is managed by the following domains:

  • Our own domain, which uses this space to modify the contents of the pages of our website in real time, for example, to show you values that you have already provided us on some other page and that you can select them instead of re-entering them manually.
  • Our booking engine (thehotelsnetwork.com), which uses this space for exactly the same purpose as us.

You can manage and deactivate at any time the cookies that our website uses from your browser, for example, to withdraw your consent, following the instructions provided by the manufacturer of your browser:

If you disable the installation of cookies in your browser, you can continue accessing our website with it, but it may be that your browsing is not optimal and that some of the services offered do not work properly.

We will update this Cookie Policy whenever necessary to reflect changes to our products and services.

If there are substantial changes to this policy, we will notify you before they take effect by posting a prominent notice on the cookie banner. In any case, we recommend you that you periodically review this Cookie Policy to know which cookies we use and how we use them.
