IFEMA provides this Cookies Policy to give you a clear understanding of the information that we collect about you, and to give you control over your privacy preferences.

You are also informed that the provisions of this web page apply not only to this website but to other present and future domains and subdomains, therefore your cookies setting will be the same for all web pages and Applications owned by IFEMA.

1. What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are downloaded to your browser when accessing a web page. These files collect information for different purposes, for example, to enable personalised browsing, develop certain functionalities and memorise your user data, among others.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) describes cookies as a type of "online identifier" so, on certain occasions, they will collect and process personal data such as, for example, user authentication cookies, which allow you to log in to a website.

Cookies are classified taking into account several factors, mainly:

  1. Their purpose and the type of information they collect;
  2. Their persistence - that is, the time they remain installed in your browser. Cookies may be installed just for the duration of a session, or for a longer and pre-set period;
  3. Their origin, since cookies can belong to the website, or to third parties that produce advertisements or other elements and add-ons. 

In addition to cookies, there are other similar technologies for storing user information, for example, scripts, tracking pixels or other add-ons, which serve the same purpose as cookies.

Therefore, with the term "cookies" we will refer to these similar technologies, as well as cookies in the strict sense.

2. How long do cookies remain installed?

As a general rule, the duration of cookies depends on their purpose, but in any case, they will be kept for a certain proportionate and limited term according to their purpose.

Depending on the time that cookies remain in your browser, they are classified as persistent cookies or session cookies.

3. What types of cookies does IFEMA use and for what purposes?

We use cookies to improve your browsing experience, to offer you a personalised configuration of the website and to develop certain features of it, specifically, through the following cookies:

4. How can I change my cookie settings or disable them?

You can change your cookie settings at any time here. This way, you can change your privacy preferences by enabling or disabling each cookie type.

If you prefer, you can also disable cookies and/or delete them through your browser settings. However, we warn you that the deactivation of some cookies could cause a slowdown in the connection between IFEMA and the user, or the inability to offer certain features of the website.

The push notification service runs on Google Cloud Platform in a secure way, through SMART2ME, S.L. (indigital). We will only send you this type of notification when you have requested it and as long as you do not block or delete this cookie from your browser.
