2. DATA SUBJECTS

This cookie and privacy policy is addressed to both users of the Platform and users registered within the framework of the Platform with regard to the processing of their personal data, whether mere users of the Platform and its services or customers of PyD. In all cases, data subjects are advised that this Platform is intended for users aged over 18 and use by minors is forbidden.

Any users who wish to register and/or access any contents or services provided through the Platform, for example to participate in personnel selection procedures (to work with PyD), receive or subscribe to news and information on PyD, submit consultations or suggestions using the contact form provided for this purpose, etc. must specifically provide their personal data on the corresponding forms provided by PyD in each case, after reading and accepting the policies and legal conditions governing those specific services or contents.

  • The legal basis for processing is principally the user’s consent, although when the user completes and sends the form to participate in any personnel selection procedures at PyD, the legal basis for processing may be to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into the contract, pursuant to Article 6 GDPR.

  • No international transfers of personal data are contemplated and the necessary safeguards are taken in this regard.
  • Pursuant to Article 30 of the Spanish Commercial Code, when the data subject is a customer of PyD, at the end of the relationship between the parties, the customer’s personal data may be kept by PyD for a period of six years. If the data subject is not a customer, their user data will be kept for the time strictly necessary to allow correct browsing, access and use of the Platform contents requested, in accordance with the provisions of this cookie and privacy policy and the laws and regulations applicable in each case.
  • Data subjects may exercise their rights of access, rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, data portability and opposition by sending an e-mail to privacidad@pyd.es with the Ref. “Exercise of Rights”, attaching a copy of their national identity document or equivalent (passport, foreigner identification number (NIE), etc.).

If you have any queries regarding our cookie and privacy policy, please contact us at privacidad@pyd.es.

9. SOCIAL NETWORKS

We inform you that social networks also collect information about the contents that you share in them through their own cookies. PyD has no control over the activity of these social networks, but we inform you that all of them have their own privacy and cookies policies. As an example, below we attach the links to the legal documents of the social networks / platforms in which we facilitate you to share our contents, so that you can be properly informed:

Cookies policy

As established in Recital 30 GDPR, natural persons may be associated with online identifiers provided by their devices, applications, tools and protocols, such as internet protocol addresses, cookie identifiers or other identifiers such as radio frequency identification tags. This may leave traces which, in particular when combined with unique identifiers and other information received by the servers, may be used to create profiles of the natural persons and identify them. For this reason, PyD has a cookie policy coherent with the applicable legal provisions.

1. Applicable legal provisions

Pursuant to section 22 of Act 34/2002 of 11 July on information society services and e-commerce, addressing the rights of the recipients of commercial communications sent by electronic means, service providers may only use data storage and recovery devices at the recipients’ terminal equipment when the recipients have been duly informed and given their consent.

For this purpose, these recipients and end users must be given full, clear information on their use and, in particular, the purposes of processing the data, pursuant to the Spanish Data Processing Act, Organic Law 15/1999 of 13 December and statutory instruments. Therefore, whenever this is technically possible and effective, the recipient’s consent to processing of their data may be given through the use of adequate parameters in the browser or other applications.

The foregoing will not preclude any possible technical access or storage for the sole purpose of sending a communication via an electronic communications network or, to the extent that this is strictly necessary, to provide an information society service expressly requested by the recipient.

2. User’s consent and cookies: general rule and exception

In general, when the installation and/or use of cookies entails personal data processing, regardless of whether they are first or third party cookies and session or persistent, PyD, as controller, shall request the user’s prior, informed consent to install and/or use them. Consequently, both obligations should be met: the duty to provide information and obtaining the user’s consent.

Only those cookies that exclusively permit communication between the user’s equipment and the network and strictly those used to provide a service requested by the user are excluded from that consent. For example, “technical cookies” (e.g. those required for browsing on the Platform or application), “personalisation cookies” (e.g. those that enable the web page to recognise the user’s language, etc.) and “security cookies” (e.g. those that detect repeated wrong attempts to connect to a website) would be excluded.

3. Are cookies used on the Platform? What are they?

The Platform uses cookies, that is, small files that are downloaded onto the user’s terminal equipment (computer, smartphone, tablet, etc.), regardless of its nature, to store data that can be updated and recovered by the entity responsible for their installation.

Cookies allow browsing on the Platform and certain utilities and services provided thereon, so users are advised that disabling or blocking them may impair use of the Platform and of said utilities and services.

4. What cookies do we use on the Platform?

Cookies can be first party or third party. First party cookies are those sent to or downloaded onto the user’s terminal equipment from the Platform (editor) and managed by the latter, while third party cookies are those sent to or downloaded onto the user’s terminal equipment from other domains or equipment not handled by the Platform (editor), but by another entity processing the data obtained through the cookies.

The aforesaid cookies can be session or persistent cookies. The former are a type of cookies designed to collect and store data while the user accesses the Platform for the main purpose of storing information that is only kept to provide the service requested by the user on a single occasion. However, the latter remain stored on the user’s terminal and may be accessed and processed over a time defined by the entity responsible for the cookie.

Cookies can also be technical, permitting the user to browse the Platform and use the different options or services provided through it, such as controlling the traffic and communication of data, identifying the session, accessing restricted access parts, recalling the elements of a contractual request, using security elements during browsing, storing content for the showing of videos or audio, or sharing content through the social networks.

They may also be personalisation cookies, i.e. those allowing the user access to the service with some pre-defined characteristics according to certain criteria associated with their terminal, such as the type of browser through which they access the service, the regional set-up from which the service is accessed, etc.

Our cookies may be analytical, which would enable PyD to monitor and analyse the behaviour of users on the Platform when they browse it. The information collected through this type of cookies is used to measure the activity of the Platform and prepare browsing profiles of users on it, with a view to making improvements based on an analysis of the data regarding the use made by users of the Platform.

We include below an INFORMATIVE SUMMARY TABLE of the specific cookies that PyD currently uses on the Platform:
