Telefónica Digital Explore.tu.com Cookies Policy

When you browse on our website, Telefonica Digital Limited (“Telefonica”, “us” or “we”) receives and records information from your browser. We get hold of this information using technology such as cookies and pixel tags that collect it.

 

What are Cookies?

Cookies are text files that contain little amounts of information that Telefonica or third parties send to your computer, phone, tablet or other equipment (“Device”) when you visit our website. If you visit our website again, those cookies are sent back to our website or another one that recognises the cookie, allowing us to recognise your device.

 

How do we use Cookies?

We use cookies in a few different ways:

We use some to enable you to browse our website and use all of the different features – without them we won’t be able to offer you all of the services available on our pages. You can decline these if set your browser to, but please remember this might affect the usability of the website.

csrftoken: Used to protect against software attacks to the website.

sessionid: helps us collects information on how our website is used. This is information such as which pages are visited the most or whether any pages won’t load. Don’t worry, they don’t collect any information on you, they just get anonymous information which is aggregated and allows us to improve the performance of our website.

django_language: Identifies the language used to serve tu.com. It speeds up the website

 

on Explore.tu.com we are also using:

tugo_user: phone number used to login to the experiment. We are using it to provide direct access to the experiment once you have logged in.

 

We also have external cookies that allow us test different options and check which is more effective (optimizelyBuckets, optimizelyEndUserId and optimizelySegments)

Another cookie we use is known as the Google Analytics cookie (_ga). This is a tracking cookie used to collect information about how you use our website. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the website. The cookie collects information in an anonymous form, which means it cannot be linked back to you. It collects information such as the number of visitors using the website, where visitors have come to the website from and what pages they have visited. If you want to read more about Google Analytics, just have a look at their privacy policy online.

We provide direct access to Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and Google+ to share our post. If you do so, you are accessing those webpages and get cookies from them.

 

Cookies are great because they allow you to navigate more easily between different pages, they remember your preferences and we use them to improve your online experience.

 

How will I know whether cookies are being used?

We have a cookies disclaimer on each page of our website. The disclaimer will tell you that cookies are being used on the page and will provide you with a link to this Cookie Policy. There’s a click and agree option where you can click to accept the cookies.

 

How do I Turn off Cookies?

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to find out the correct way to modify your cookies. But remember, as we mentioned earlier, if you turn cookies off, you may not have access to some of the features that make our website more efficient.
