1. What is a cookie? General information on cookies
A cookie is a small text file that a website stores in your browser. Cookies facilitate the use and navigation of a website and are essential for operating on the Internet, as they provide numerous advantages in the provision of interactive services.
Cookies are used, for example, to manage your session (reducing the number of times you have to provide a password) or to adapt the contents of a web page to your preferences and therefore improve your experience of its use.
Cookies can be "session", which are deleted once you leave the website that generated them, or "persistent", which remain on your computer until a certain date.
Likewise, cookies can be "own" or "third party". The first are those that are sent to your computer from a computer or domain managed by TMB. Third-party" cookies are those that are sent to your computer from a computer or domain managed by the service providers contracted by TMB (for example, the web analytics service, which is offered by Google). For each of the cookies you will find in the cookie manager, you can consult the information and links to the policies and to the complementary provider (third party) information.

However, you can manage the acceptance or non-acceptance of these cookies by configuring your browser and through the cookie manager.
Social media cookies are used so that, through the so-called "social share buttons", you can share content from our website on social media and connect to it.
We do not control the cookies installed by each social network, although these are usually technical and usually control the login or display the counter that shows how many times a given content has been shared.
We recommend that you review the privacy and cookies policies of each social network and, if necessary, modify the privacy settings of each of them to limit the tracking processes that may be carried out.
These are cookies that enable the website to remember information so you can access the site with predefined characteristics, so that they can differentiate your experience from that of other users, such as language, the number of results displayed during searches, the appearance or content of the website depending on the type of browser you use or the region from which it is accessed, etc.

4. What other information can we collect?
