1.- What is a cookie?
A cookie is a file downloaded into your computer when accessing certain websites. Cookies are used by websites, among other things, to store and recover information about the surfing habits of a user or his equipment and, depending on the information they contain and the way the equipment is used, they can be employed to recognise the user. The user’s browser stores cookies in the hard drive only during the current session, using a minimum space and without damaging the computer. Cookies are in most cases deleted from the hard drive when the user closes the browser (“session cookies”).
Most browsers accept cookies as a standard, but they can be set to allow or block temporary or stored cookies.
2.- Our cookies.
We use technical cookies in our website. They allow the user to navigate through a website, platform or app and use the different options and services offered, such as, controlling traffic and data communication, identifying the session, accessing restricted access areas, remembering elements that are part of an order, making purchases, submitting a membership or participation form, using security elements during navigation, storing content for broadcasting video and sound or sharing content on social networks.
Additionally, we use the following cookies, from third parties:
- Advertising cookies from the Affiliate Network Partner Zanox (supplier company): Zanox AG (Permanent): this network is integrated by thousands of websites that can choose to advertise Global Exchange to promote our currency exchange services. If a user clicks on one of those ads and makes a purchase in our website during a session, or several days after using the same equipment (same PC, tablet or cell phone) without deleting this kind of cookies, Global Exchange will be aware of the fact that the order or pre-order came from this given website and will compensate it, and Zanox, with the commission agreed beforehand for succeeding in getting a user to make a purchase.

- Advertising cookies from double click (supplier company: Google Inc.) (Permanent): this network integrates thousands of websites that give support so that Google, based on context criteria (search carried out on a search engine and website of the network visited), displays Global Exchange ads on said website. The idea is to assess through these cookies whether a purchase taking place on the Global Exchange website is the product of an advert displayed on one of the websites of the Google network. This can only be assessed if a purchase is carried out using the same equipment (same PC, tablet or cell phone) where the advert was originally accessed and the cookies have not been deleted.
