On www.torreiberdrola.es we use own and third-party cookies for usage analysis and measurement purposes to make sure that our websites are working properly and enable us to improve our services.

The third-party cookies we use on Torre Iberdrola to obtain information on visits, measure and analyse browsing habits on the website, and customise some services are owned by Google Analytics, Google, Google Maps and YouTube. Both Torre Iberdrola and Google Analytics, Google, Google Maps and YouTube have access to the data collected by the devices owned by the latter.

  • Customisation or configuration cookies:: these enable the web page to recognise the user’s language, the font size, etc.
  • Security cookies: these prevent or hinder attacks against the website or its users.
  • Analysis cookies: these enable user activity to be measured and browsing statistics to be compiled.

Third-party cookies

These cookies are created and managed by third parties, i.e. they establish domains other than the website being visited. (Various cookies perform different functions):

APISID, HSID, PREF and SID: For example, YouTube and Google use this type of cookies to load the video configuration and the history and to display the user’s recent activity, collecting information on their browsing habits when they access the web page using their account. They are also used to measure activity (through statistics) when there are several users on the website. (They only identify the users directly if they have logged in with their account on the browser.)

NID, SNID, khcookie and PREF: These cookies are used by Google Maps to enable the website’s users to identify the locations they are looking for. They have a duration of 6 months.

PREF, NID, SID: Google uses these cookies to be able to customise the ads displayed by its services, for example, to remind us of our most recent searches, of our interactions, of our visits to an advertiser’s website, etc. This enables customised ads to be displayed on Google, since our preferences and other information have already been stored.

OGPC: This cookie is used by Google to provide services and extract anonymous information on the user’s browsing. It has a duration of 1 month.
