Política de cookies

Welcome to the COOKIE POLICY for BEAR QUÍMICA S.A website (company tax identification number A61091799) in which we will answer in simple, clear language everything you wanted to know about cookies so that you have complete control over them.

  • WHAT ARE COOKIES AND WHAT DO WE USE THEM FOR?

A cookie is a small data file which is saved on your computer, smartphone or tablet every time you visit our website.

Basically, a cookie is an inoffensive file: it doesn’t contain any viruses, Trojans, worms, etc., which might damage your device; however, it does have a certain impact on data protection as it records some information which is considered personal (browsing habits, identity, preferences, etc.).

As a result, the acceptance of certain types of cookies will require your prior authorisation to comply with current laws (LSSI – Law of Information Society Services and Electronic Commerce and data protection laws).

With just a simple click in a box on our COOKIE CONFIGURATION section, you can give your authorisation to enable all the cookies you need: take control and enjoy personalised browsing on our page.

Before you do that, here is a little bit more information to help you make the right decision:

  1. There are several different types of cookie which vary according to their purpose:
  • Technical cookies are required for the page to work properly – they do not require authorisation and they are the only ones which are enabled by default.
  • All other cookies are used to make the page better browsing experience for you, to personalise the page according to your preferences or to be able to show you advertising which is tailored to your searches, likes and personal interests. By default, this type of cookie is disabled unless you give prior authorisation to enable it; to do this, all you need to do is click in the box in our COOKIE CONFIGURATION
  1. Some of the cookies belong to us (we call them our own cookies) and others belong to external companies which provide services for our website (we call these third-party cookies: a good example of this is cookies from external providers such as Google). It is important for you to understand that some of these external providers may be located outside Spain.

Not all countries have the same level of data protection, and there are some countries which are safer than others (for example, the European Union is a safe area to your data). It is our policy to only work with reliable providers who – whether they are located within the European Union or not – have adopted sufficient guarantees to ensure that your personal information remains protected. However, you can check the different privacy and data protection policies for each of these external providers in the section entitled WHAT TYPE OF COOKIES ARE CURRENTLY USED ON OUR WEBSITE? so that you can make an informed decision on whether to enable the third-party cookies used on our website or not.

  1. Finally, there are two different types of cookie depending on the length of time that they remain active:
  • Session cookies: automatically expire when you close the session on your computer, smartphone or tablet. This type of cookie is generally used to record the necessary information when you are being provided with a one-off service.
  • Persistent cookies: remain stored on your computer, smartphone or tablet for a specified period of time which can range from just a few minutes up to several years.
  • WHAT TYPE OF COOKIES MIGHT BE USED ON OUR WEBSITE?
  • Technical cookies:

Technical cookies are required for our website to work and for you to be able to navigate through it. This type of cookie is used, for example, to identify you, provide you access to certain restricted areas of the website where necessary or to log different options or services which you have already selected, e.g. your privacy settings. This means that they are enabled by default, and do not require your authorisation.

You can use the configuration settings of your browser to block or warn you about the presence of this type of cookie, however, blocking these cookies will prevent certain areas of our website from functioning correctly.

  • Analytics cookies:

Analytics cookies are used to help us study how visitors to our website use it (for example, which sections of the site are the most visited and which services are used the most and whether they function correctly, etc.).

Based on this statistical information on how our page is used, we can improve both how the web page itself works and also the different services that it offers. These cookies are not used for advertising, all they are used for is to make our website function well so that we can provide better service to our users. By enabling these cookies, you will be helping us continue to improve our site.

You can enable or disable cookies by ticking or unticking the box. They are disabled by default.

  • Functionality and personalisation cookies:

Functionality cookies allow us to record your preferences so that we can tailor specific characteristics and general options on our website every time you visit it (for example, the language you wish to see content in, sections you have marked as favourites or the browser you are using, etc.).

As a result, this type of cookie is not used for advertising, but if you enable it, you will improve the functionality of the website (for example, by adapting it to your browser) and personalisation of it based on your preferences (for example, by showing you information in the language you have previously selected). This will help make your visit to our website simpler and better for you.

You can enable or disable cookies by ticking or unticking the box. They are disabled by default.

  • Advertising cookies:

Advertising cookies help us manage the advertisements shown on our website, e.g. the type of content shown or the frequency with which advertising is displayed.

This means, for example, if you have been shown the same advertisement on our website but have not shown any interest in it (i.e. have not clicked on it), you will not be shown the advert again. In short, by enabling this type of cookie, the advertising shown to you on our website will be more useful, more varied and less repetitive.

You can enable or disable cookies by ticking or unticking the box. They are disabled by default.

  • Behavioural advertising cookies:

Behavioural advertising cookies provide us with information based on observing your habits and behaviours when browsing on our website; this information can then be used to help show you advertising content tailored to your tastes and personal interests.

To explain it more simply, here is an invented example: if the last few searches you made on the internet were for thrillers, we would show you advertising for thrillers.

If this type of cookie is enabled, the advertising that we show you on our website will not be generic. It will be tailored to your searches, tastes and interests and will be exclusive to you.

You can enable or disable cookies by ticking or unticking the box. They are disabled by default.

WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH COOKIES?
 

When opening our website for the first time, you will be shown a window explaining how various different types of cookie can be used:

  • Technical cookies are required for the page to work properly – they do not require authorisation and they are the only ones which are enabled by default. These are the only types of cookie which will still be enabled if you click straight on the OK
  • All the other cookies are used to make the page better browsing experience for you, to personalise the page according to your preferences or to be able to show you advertising which is tailored to your searches, likes and personal interests. They are all disabled by default, but you can enable them in the COOKIE CONFIGURATION section: take control and enjoy personalised browsing on our website. All you need to do is tick the cookies you wish to enable.

We would also like to inform you that you can also disable any cookies at any time by just unticking the box in the COOKIES CONFIGURATION section of our website. It will always remain quick and easy for you to enable or disable cookies whenever you want.

We would also like to remind you that you can use the configuration settings of your browser to block or warn you about the presence of this type of cookie, however, blocking these cookies will prevent certain areas of our website from functioning correctly.

Finally, we would also like to inform you that if you enable third-party cookies (cookies from external companies which provide services to our web page) and wish to disable them at a later date, there are two ways of doing this: you can either use the settings in your browser to disable the cookies, or each external provider has a system in place for disabling cookies.

To make things easier, here are a few links which will help you enable or disable cookies in the leading browsers:

Here is a list of links to from each of our external providers describing how to disable their cookies:

  • Link external provider 1.
  • Link external provider 2.
