Towa Pharma International Holdings, S.L.U., has developed this policy to inform you about what a cookie is and what it is used for, what cookies we use on this website (the «Website») and to explain how to configure cookies according to your interests, as required by article 22.1 of Law 34/2002, of 11 July, on Information Society Services and Electronic Commerce («ISSEC»).
By configuring or accepting cookies, you are consenting to the installation of all cookies or those selected.
However, you should bear in mind that there are certain cookies that are exempt from consent as they are essential for the proper functioning of the Website. Included in this exception are those cookies of a technical nature intended to allow the user to browse this Website, enable the use of the different services included on this Website, to control web traffic and data communication, among others, as described below.
WHAT COOKIES ARE
A cookie is a small text file that a website stores in the user’s computer. Cookies facilitate the use and navigation of a website and are essential for the functioning of the internet, providing countless advantages in the provision of interactive services.
Cookies are used, for example, to manage the user’s session (reducing the number of times they must enter the user password) or to adapt the contents of a website to user preferences and therefore improve the experience of using the website.
Cookies are classified according to the following categories:
Depending on their duration, we distinguish between «session» or «persistent» cookies. Session cookies will be deleted once the user leaves the website, and persistent cookies will remain on your computer for a certain period.
Likewise, depending on the entity that manages the equipment or domain from which the cookies are sent and processes the data obtained, we can distinguish between own or third-party cookies. The own cookies are those that are sent to the user’s computer from a computer or domain managed by Towa and from which the service requested by the user is provided, while third-party cookies are those that are sent to the user’s computer from a computer or domain that is not managed by Towa or which, although managed by Towa, is another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies for its own purposes (often by contracted providers, for example, web analytics services).

Other similar technologies:
In addition to the information collected through cookies, we may use other similar technologies such as tracking pixels or web beacons.
A tracking pixel, also known as a marketing pixel, is a 1×1 pixel graphic used to track user behavior, site conversions, web traffic, and other metrics similar to a cookie.
The pixels collect information about the browser used, the IP address, and the frequency and duration of visits and are also used to track the actions that users perform through the website (such as, for example, redirections to other web pages, type of audience interested), among others.
In addition to the use of tracking pixels or web beacons, we may use another user identification and tracking technique known as «fingerprinting», which allows verifying certain technical parameters of the equipment used by the user such as, for example, the browser, the operating system, the screen resolution, the plugins and add-ons installed, the type of font, the IP address, the language or the time zone, and which, once combined, allow their identification. The information collected will be used to track the activity carried out and the user’s browsing and to carry out user profiling.
WHAT COOKIES DO WE USE
On our website, we only use our own technical/strictly necessary cookies.
Technical cookies allow the user to browse through a website, platform, or application and use the options or services available, including those that Towa uses to allow the management and operation of the website and enable its functions and services such as, for example, controlling the web traffic and data communication, remembering login credentials and the items in your shopping cart, accessing parts of restricted access, carrying out the purchase process, 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 purpose of billing licenses of the software used in the with the service provided (website, platform or application), use security features while browsing, store content for broadcasting videos or sound, enable dynamic content (such as the animation of loading text or images) or share content through social networks.
The technical cookies shall be exempt from compliance with the obligations established in article 22.2 of the ISSEC when they enable the service requested by the user, as is the case of the cookies listed in the previous paragraphs. However, if these cookies are also used for non-exempt purposes (for example, for behavioral advertising purposes), they will be subject to such obligations.
The technical cookies are necessary and therefore cannot be disabled by the user, being exempted from consent by article 22.2 of the ISSEC.
We inform you that if you block the use of this type of cookies through your browser settings (see section «How to manage cookies» below), the Website may not function correctly.
The technical cookies used are the following:
