This Cookie Policy is an integral part of the Legal Notice and Privacy Policy of the website. (hereinafter referred to as the “Platform” or “Website“). 

In order to facilitate navigation of the Website, Asociación Española Contra el Cáncer, with Tax Identification Number G-28197564 (hereinafter, “AECC”) and Fundación Científica de la Asociación Española Contra el Cáncer, with Tax Identification Number G-28655033 (hereinafter, “Fundación”), in their capacity as co-responsible parties and as co-owner thereof, with registered offices at Calle Teniente Coronel Noreña 30, 28010, Madrid , hereby inform you that they use cookies or other data storage and retrieval devices with similar functionality (hereinafter, “cookies“).  

In this sense, and with the aim of guaranteeing the user all the necessary information for correct browsing, we provide the user with the following information on what cookies are, what types of cookies are used on our website and how they can be configured or disabled. 


Cookies are files sent from a web server that obtain information from users’ devices, for example, about their preferences and browsing patterns. 

Cookies are essential for the functioning of the Internet, as they offer technical solutions that allow the user to navigate through the different websites; they cannot damage the user’s equipment/device and can be used to identify and resolve possible errors in the functioning of the Website. They may also be used for advertising or analytical purposes. 


Specifically, AECC and the Foundation use its own cookies generated directly by this domain and third-party cookies generated from other websites outside AECC and the Foundation, belonging to third party companies, for the specific purposes described below. If in the future AECC and the Foundation use other cookies for the purpose of providing more and better services, the user will be informed of this. 

(i) Own technical cookies 

They are those that allow the user to browse through the Website and use the different options or services that exist on it, such as, for example, control traffic and data communication, identify the session, access restricted areas, remember the elements that make up an order, carry out the purchase process of an order, manage payment, control fraud linked to the security of the service, make the application for registration or participation in an event, count visits for the purposes of billing licenses for the software with which the service (website, platform or application) operates, use security elements during browsing, store content for the broadcasting of videos or sound, enable dynamic content (for example, animation of text or image loading) or share content through social networks . 

AECC and the Foundation do not need your consent to install cookies on your device that are necessary to activate the functionalities of the Website, and their use is based on the need to provide the services requested. If you disable or block all cookies in your browser, your browsing of the Website may not be optimal and some of the utilities available on the Website may not work correctly. 

(ii) Personalisation cookies 

They are those that allow information to be remembered so that the user can access the service with certain characteristics that may differentiate their experience from that of other users, such as, for example, the language, the number of results to be displayed when the user performs a search, the appearance or content of the service depending on the type of browser through which the user accesses the service or the region from which they access the service, etc. . If it is the user himself who chooses these characteristics (for example, if he selects the language of a website by clicking on the icon of the flag of the corresponding country), the cookies will be considered as a service expressly requested by the user, and will therefore be used exclusively for the selected purpose and without requesting his express consent. 

(iii) Analytical Cookies 

These cookies collect information about how visitors use the website, for example, which pages visitors go to most often, whether they receive error messages from web pages, which sections of the website they access or which buttons on the website they click. The information obtained by these cookies does not allow visitors to be identified. All information obtained is aggregated and therefore anonymous. The function of these cookies is to obtain statistics and reports that allow us to improve the functioning of the website. 

These cookies are only installed on the user’s device when the user accepts them.
