A cookie (or computer cookie) is a brief piece of information transmitted by a website that is stored in the user's browser. In this way, the website can observe the user's previous actions.


Use of cookies

The website uses cookies, that is to say, files that a web server sends to a browser for different purposes.

The website uses cookies to personalize information and facilitate access to it, for example, to locate the site on Google Maps or to collect data on visits to the website using Google Analytics.

You can configure your browser to refuse the installation of cookies and notify it. However, if you do so, you may not be able to access certain content or services. In any case, the data contained on the website will only be used with your prior authorization and for the purpose described in each case in the contents located on the website, as set out in its Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

Lazkaoko Beneditarren Fundazioa will maintain control of all data collected through its own cookies stored on its servers. The data will not be shared with third parties for sales, market research or commercial purposes.

The original cookie contains the following information:

  • Unique random identification of the visitor.
  • Time of each visitor's first visit
  • Time of each visitor's previous visit
  • Number of visits per visitor.

Persistent cookies are stored on a device and are not automatically deleted when the browser is closed. For permanent cookies a random ID is created to know when the user has returned to the website.

All cookies expire after 6 months.


Device fingerprint tracking

Lazkaoko Beneditarren Fundazioa uses a mechanism for IP address de-identification. Part of each visitor's IP address is automatically masked (Internet protocol), so that a specific visitor cannot be identified from Google by IP address alone.

The device fingerprint is collected on a remote computing device for identification purposes. These fingerprints can be used to identify individual users or devices, even when cookies are disabled. The device fingerprint expires after 30 minutes. However, if a user so chooses (opt-out), no device fingerprint will be collected.


Data logging

Logs are text files that store information on the server. The following logs are stored for analytical purposes, unless the user decides otherwise (opt-out):

  • IP address of the visitor (masked), location, date, time and time range.
  • Title, URL of the page being viewed and URL of the previously viewed page.
  • Information about the device used (screen resolution, desktop/tablet/mobile, brand, model) and Internet connection (page speed).
  • Operating system, browser version, browser supported components.
  • Site search and files accessed, downloads and links to external domains.
  • The main language used in the browser and the language of the page visited.
