First-party and third-party cookies are used on this website to offer a better browsing experience, for you to share content on social media and so we can obtain user statistics.

You can prevent cookies being downloaded via your browser settings, preventing cookies being stored on your device.

As owner of this website, I inform you that we do not use any personal information from the cookies; we only obtain general statistics on visits which do not involve any personal information.

It is very important that you read this Cookie Policy and understand that, if you continue browsing, we consider that you agree to their use.

According to the terms included in Article 22.2 of Law 34/2002 on Information Society Services and E-commerce, if you continue browsing you will be giving your consent for the use of the mechanisms mentioned above.

What are cookies?

Cookies are data packets that a server delivers to the user’s browser to collect standard Internet login information and visitor behaviour information on a website. They are small text files which are stored on the hard drive of your computer and which serve to identify the user when they visit a website again. Their purpose is to record the user’s visit and store certain information. Their use is common and frequent on the Internet as they permit sites to function more efficiently and to achieve greater personalisation and also to analyse user behaviour.

What type of cookies are there?

The cookies used on our website are session and third-party cookies, and they allow us to store and access information related to the language, type of browser used, and other general characteristics predefined by you, as well as to track and analyse the activity carried out in order to make improvements and provide our services in a more efficient and personalised way.

Cookies, depending on how long they last, can be divided into session cookies or persistent cookies: session cookies expire when the user closes the browser; persistent cookies expire depending on when they have served the purpose for which they were created (e.g., to keep the user identified in CHELSEA’s services) or when they are deleted manually.

Name Type Expiration Purpose Class
__utma Third-party (Google Analytics) 2 years Used to distinguish users and sessions. Non-strictly necessary cookie
__utmb Third-party (Google Analytics) 30 minuts Used to determine new sessions or visits Non-strictly necessary cookie
__utmc Third-party (Google Analytics) At the end of the session Configured for use with Urchin Non-strictly necessary cookie
__utmz Third-party (Google Analytics) 6 meses Stores the origin or campaign that explains how the user got to the website Non-strictly necessary cookie

Additionally, depending on their purpose, the cookies can be classified in the following way:

Performance cookies

This type of cookie remembers your preferences for the tools found in the services, so you don’t need to reconfigure the service every time you visit. As an example, this type includes: video or audio player volume settings; video transmission rates that are compatible with your browser; items saved in the “shopping cart” in e-commerce services such as stores.

Geolocation cookies

These cookies are used to find out which country you are in when you request a service. This cookie is completely anonymous and is only used to help target content according to your location.

Login cookies

Login cookies are generated once a user has registered or has subsequently opened their session, and are used to identify them in the services for the following purposes:

To keep the user identified so that if they close a service, the browser or the computer and access this service again at another time or on another day, they will continue to remain identified, thus facilitating browsing without having to identify themselves again. This functionality can be removed if the user presses the [close session] functionality, so that this cookie is deleted and the next time they access the service the user will have to log in again in order to be identified.

To check whether the user is authorised to access certain services; for example, to participate in a contest.

Additionally, some services may use social media connectors such as Facebook or Twitter. When the user signs up to a service using credentials from a social media site, they authorise the social media site to store a persistent cookie to remember their identity which grants them access to the services until it expires. The user can delete this cookie and revoke access to the services through social media by updating their preferences on the social media site they specify.

Analytical cookies

Every time a user visits a service, a tool from a third-party provider generates an analytical cookie on the user’s computer. This cookie, which is only generated during the visit, will be used to anonymously identify the visitor on their future visits to CHELSEA’s services. The main purposes they serve are to:

Enable the anonymous identification of users browsing through the cookie (identifies browsers and devices, not persons) and therefore the approximate visitor number count and their trend over time.
Anonymously identify the most visited content and which is therefore most attractive for users. To know if the user who is visiting is new or a repeat visitor.

Important: unless the user decides to sign up to a CHELSEA service, the cookie will never be associated with any personal data that may identify them. Such cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that help optimise users’ experience on the website.

Advertising cookies

This type of cookie allows information on the adverts shown to each anonymous user in CHELSEA’s services to be increased. Amongst other things, the duration or frequency of the advertising position displays, interaction with them, or the navigation and/or behaviour patterns of the user are stored as they help to build a profile on advertising interest. This enables us to offer advertising in keeping with the interests of the user.

Third-party cookies

In addition to the advertising managed by the CHELSEA websites in their services, the CHELSEA websites offer their advertisers the option of serving ads through third parties (“Ad-Servers”). This means that these third parties can store cookies sent from CHELSEA’s services coming from the users’ browsers, as well as access the data stored on them.

The companies that generate these cookies have their own privacy policies. Currently, CHELSEA websites use the Doubleclick platform (Google) to manage these services. For more information, please see




How can I disable cookies in my browser?

Different browsers can be configured to receive a warning on-screen when receiving cookies, and, if desired, to prevent their installation on the computer. Similarly, the user can check in their browser which cookies are installed and what is their expiration date, being able to delete them.
