COOKIE POLICY


General. Purpose of the use of cookies 

This Cookie Use Policy applies to the website operated under the domain 'ponsip.com' (hereinafter, the 'Website') by PONS Patentes y Marcas Internacional, S.L. (hereinafter, 'PONS Patentes y Marcas Internacional').

This Policy governs the use of the Website by anyone accessing the Website through any communication protocol (hereinafter, the 'User').

The Website uses cookies in its internal operating processes. These cookies enable the possibility of controlling the User's navigation data in order to facilitate any subsequent communication. Under no circumstances shall cookies be used to control the User's access to or navigation of the Website for the purpose of analysing their browsing or access habits or obtaining any type of personal information. No profiling is performed.

Specifically, the Website uses cookies to identify the registered User (authentication and identification cookies), that has contracted the provision of some service by PONS Patentes y Marcas Internacional, so that the User can quickly access such services when they sign out and then sign back in afterwards. These cookies are persistent cookies, and are not cancelled unless the User decides to delete them. 

The validity of these cookies is deemed necessary to achieve these objectives. Under no circumstances shall cookies be used for any purpose other than those described above. The User has the possibility of configuring their Internet browser to obtain a better knowledge and control of cookies, and even to render them inactive or disabled. In the latter case, however, the User must bear in mind that such deactivation entails the slowing down of their communication with PONS Patentes y Marcas Internacional, the need for the User to reprocess their request for the provision of services or the impossibility of providing some or certain services contracted through the Website.

Authorization for the use of cookies. Withdrawal of consent

In accordance with the cookie notice that appears on the Website, the User or visitor accepts that, by simply browsing the Website, they expressly consent to the use of cookies as described below, except when they have modified the configuration of their browser to reject the use of cookies, as indicated above. 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the User may revoke the consent initially given, as well as exercise the rights of access, rectification, suppression, opposition, limitation of the processing and portability of the data, by sending an e-mail to rgpd@ponsip.com.

Types of cookies used on the Web 

In accordance with the above, the Website uses cookies to facilitate navigation and to give greater efficiency and customization of the services offered to the registered User, or to authenticate or identify them when accessing the contracted services. 
The types of cookies used are based on the following functionality features:

  • •    Strictly necessary Cookies added by the owner: These are cookies strictly necessary to facilitate correct navigation on the Website, as well as to ensure that the content included in such website loads effectively. 
  • •    Session Cookies: Cookies temporary in nature that expire and are automatically deleted once the User closes their browser.
  •  Consequently, the Website uses two types of cookies:
  • •    A session cookie, usually called MoodleSession, is essential. The User must allow their browser to accept it in order to keep the service running when going from one page to another. When the User leaves the platform or closes their browser, the cookie is deleted (from their browser and from the server).
  • •    The other cookie, usually called MOODLEID, is for your convenience. This cookie only saves your username and, if services are contracted, it recalls the ones the User has contracted. 
  • This means that when you return to the Website your name will automatically appear in the 'user id' field. Disable this option for greater security. Simply enter your name manually each time you want to sign in.

Third-Party Cookies

Please note that when browsing through the Website the User may be offered a link to another website, application or social network. The following is an example of the entities other than PONS Patentes y Marcas Internacional that use cookies on the Website, as well as their purposes:

Social network cookies:; The owner of the website or social network uses cookies so that the User can share content on social networks such as LinkedIn or Twitter, and so that the users can directly fill in the fields of the registration forms of this type of social platform with the data previously provided.
Cookies to measure traffic on Internet portals: The owner of such portals uses Google Analytics cookies to collect statistical data on user activity on the website in question, and thereby improve the services provided to users. These cookies allow for the analysis of user traffic by generating an anonymous user ID that is used to measure how many times a website is visited by a particular user. It also records when the website was first and last visited, when the user signed out, and the user's territorial origin.

Disabling or deleting cookies
The User has the option of being able to allow, block or, where appropriate, delete all the cookies that have been installed on the local computer. Please note that if the User disables cookies, some of the services previously provided may no longer be operational.

PONS Patentes y Marcas Internacional is not responsible for the fact that some browsers may prevent or hinder the disabling or deletion of cookies. The user must ask the manufacturer or supplier of the Internet browser software for confirmation that the browser has the corresponding functionality, as well as a detailed explanation on how to achieve such disabling or deletion.
