Under no circumstances can cookies damage your computer. On the other hand, the fact that they are active helps us to identify and resolve errors.

In compliance with the provisions of Article 22.2 of the Law on Information Society Services and Electronic Commerce (LSSI) and in accordance with European Directive 2009/136/EC, INICIATIVAS INNOVADORAS informs you about the cookies and other storage devices that we use so that you can freely choose whether to accept them or not.

To refuse them, it is as simple as selecting “Refuse” and if you want to configure which cookies you want to be installed you can do so by going to “Configure”.

If you disable cookies, you will still be able to access the website, but browsing the website may not be optimal and some of the services offered may not work properly.

If in the future we come to use different types of cookies to those covered in this Cookies Policy to provide new services or it is necessary to adapt it to new legislative requirements, we will notify you through our website For your information, we use the following categories of cookies:

A. Analytical Cookies

We inform you that we use analysis cookies. The main application we use to obtain and analyze browsing information is: Google Analytics: and which is a service provided by Google Inc, a Delaware company whose main office is at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View (California), CA 94043, United States (“Google”).

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on its servers. Google will use this information on our behalf for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

Google Analytics is a simple, easy-to-use tool that helps website owners measure how users interact with site content. When a user browses the pages of a website, Google Analytics provides the website owner with JavaScript tags (libraries) to record information about the page a user has viewed, for example, the URL of the page. Google Analytics JavaScript libraries use HTTP cookies to “remember” what a user has done on previous pages or interactions with the website.

Google Analytics supports two JavaScript libraries (tags) to measure website usage: analytics.js and ga.js.

The ga.js JavaScript library uses its own cookies to:

  • Determine the domain to be measured
  • Distinguish unique users
  • Limit the percentage of requests.
  • Remember the number and duration of previous visits.
  • Remember traffic source information
  • Determine the start and end of a session
  • Remembering the value of custom visitor variables

By default, this library sets cookies on the domain specified in the browser’s property and sets the cookie path at the root (/) level.The analytics.js JavaScript library is part of Universal Analytics and uses a single source cookie containing an anonymous identifier to differentiate users.

By default, this library sets cookies at the top-level domain, excluding the first dot, and sets the cookie path at the root level (/).

This library sets the following cookies:

Cookie name Duration Description
_ga 2 years It is used to distinguish users.
_gid 24 hours It is used to distinguish users.
_gat 1 minute Used to limit the percentage of requests. If you have implemented Google Analytics using Google Tag Manager, this cookie will be called _dc_gtm_<property-id>.

B. Cookies used by social networks

Secondly, we use plug-in cookies to share content on social networks such as Facebook®, Instagram®, YouTube®, Linkedin® or X®. If you click with your mouse on the content we publish on these social networks, you can access our profile and share our information on your profile if you have an account on the social network. These plug-ins store and access cookies on the user’s terminal equipment that allow the social network to identify its members as they interact with the plug-ins. Therefore you should know that if you browse our site while identified in the corresponding social network you have to take into account that, if you share content from this website with friends through the social network, or publish content on our page-profile of that social network, you will receive cookies from your website. We cannot control the settings of third party cookies, so we suggest you check the websites of such third parties for more information about their cookies and how to manage them.

 C. Technical Cookies

Finally, this website uses technical cookies for the operation of the website, specifically to determine whether the user has accepted the use of cookies and what kind of cookies he/she has consented to them being installed. Disabling these cookies by blocking cookies may prevent the correct functioning of some of the website’s functionalities.
