They cannot be installed without having applied a technical measure which allows the blocking of the cookies until having stated the consent by the user or a clear affirmative action of the same. Such action must be performed by each category of cookies of which consent is required.

Information in 2 layers:

Taking into account that the manner of obtention of the consent from the user for the installation of cookies is easier, it is the called “information in two layers” (a term introduced by the Spanish Data Protection Agency, in its “Guide of cookies”), we will proceed to recommend it from Dataseg. The formula of compliance of Art. 22.2 of the LSSI, information in two layers, is simple, it is composed of two parts, two layers, in the first, the user is informed, in a quick and vivid manner of the use of cookies, the second widens the information complying with all the informative measures imposed by the legislator.


The first layer has to be a visible notice (heading or footnote, pop-up, welcome page, among others) which appears to the user just when he/she opens the web.

This first layer must inform about:

  1. The type or purpose of the cookies used.

  2. The ownership or not of the cookies.

  3. The possibility of accepting, rejecting or configuring its installation.


We use our own cookies and cookies from third parties, with the aim of studying their path through our web and optimize our offer of contents. For more information visit our Policy of cookies.


The second layer is a policy of cookies, which must be identified as an independent paragraph/link, visible from the web.

It is mostly recommended that it is independent from the notice/legal conditions (even though it is also included in it) and/or to put it jointly with the privacy policy.

*In any event, it is recommended to create a specific tab/link, with its name.

In the following policy of cookies appear the links to the different web sites, if preferred, hyperlinks can be created directly.
