2. Cookies used on this website

The cookies used on this website are as follows:

Google Analytics: Generates statistics on traffic and volume of visits to this website.

These are files that, when processed by us or third parties, allow the controller to track and analyse user behaviour on the websites that they are linked to. Among other things, the data collected allows for the analysis of the number of users, the pages visited, the time spent by users on each page or whether they are new or are re-visiting, whilst always maintaining anonymity (they identify devices and browsers, but never users).

The information is gathered by Google Analytics cookies and Google, Inc. holds sole responsibility for these and their use. The Spanish Committee of UNHCR does not have access at any time to the information gathered, only to aggregate data (meaning personal data are not included), which are provided by Google, Inc. and are not associated with any specific IP address. The processing purpose, the use of the information collected, the operation and the duration of Google Analytics cookies are all determined by Google. You can find more information about this through Google’s Privacy Centre.

The information provided by Google allows us to find out what content is the most visited and, therefore, the most appealing for our users, thus allowing us to improve the focus of our content.
