these cookies are sent to the User’s computer from a computer or domain that is not managed by the Website editor, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies. If the cookies are installed from a computer or domain managed by the ONCE, but the information collected thereby is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered as ONCE’s own cookies. In this regard, ONCE may hire the services of analysis and measurement companies that measure and/or analyse the browsing behaviour of users on the platform and, in to such end, act in its name and on its behalf, by analysing the data obtained from the use of cookies by these third parties, all with the sole aim of improving the service provided by ONCE.
