What are cookies?

Cookies are small files with information, sent by the website
http://crowd.humansurge.org/, which are stored on the user’s browser whenever they
access and browse the website. When we talk about browser, we mean the
programs the user uses to access the Internet, for instance Chrome, Firefox, Safari,
etc. – regardless of the device they use to browse the Internet (tablet, mobile,
desktop pc, laptop, etc.).

There are different types of cookies depending on the information they gather. For instance:

  • Cookies that manage access to the user session so they do not have to enter their user name and password every time they access the site, and also guarantee the security of the session of the user whenever they log in.
  • Cookies that enable the configuration of the website to the user, such as browser’s language.
  • Cookies that measure the user’s activity on the site in order to allow HumanSurge to analyze that information and introduce improvements to the service.
  • Advertising cookies for configuring the adverts displayed to the user in accordance with their browsing habits.

The cookies do not gather confidential information such as the email, the user’s name, phone number, etc. What the cookies may store is the IP address of the network from which the website is accessed. The IP address (https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direcci%C3%B3n_IP) is a number that identifies a device (computer, tablet, smartphone) on the Internet. That number is assigned by the user’s Internet provider (Movistar, Vodafone, AT&T, etc.).

We do not use the IP address to identify the user. We use the user’s IP address to register the activity performed from their browser on our website. Nevertheless, the regulation on data protection considers the IP address to be personal data, for that reason we report on the use of the IP address in this policy.

Types of cookies we use on our website

Below there is a list of our own and third party cookies that we use on our website, both on its desktop and its mobile version. The user must make sure they agree with the installation of the cookies on their browser before continuing to use HumanSurge.

They can also set up their browser so it will not accept cookies, although that will affect the correct operation of the website and, in practice, it would be practically impossible to use the services of the site.
