Why should I read this?
The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) aims primarily to give control to citizens and residents over their personal data. On Enroyd.com we want to be completely transparent about how we use your data.

What is a cookie?
A cookie is a very small, harmless file that is stored in your browser when you visit almost any web page. The main purpose of a cookie is that the website can remember your visit when you return to navigate that page. Although many people do not know this, cookies have been used for 20 years, when the first browsers for the World Wide Web appeared.
What IS NOT a cookie?
It’s not a virus, nor a Trojan, nor spyware… not even spam!
What kind of cookies are there?
- Technical Cookies: These are the most basic and allow, among other things, to know when a human being or an automated application is surfing, when an anonymous and registered user is surfing, basic tasks for the operation of any dynamic website.
- Analysis Cookies: Collect information on the type of navigation you are doing, the sections you use most, products consulted, time of use, language, etc.
- Advertising Cookies: Display advertising based on your navigation, country of origin, language, etc.
What are own and third-party cookies?

What happens if I turn off cookies?
To help you understand the extent to which you can disable cookies, here are some examples:
We will not be able to adapt the contents to the interests of our user, as we won’t be able to track what sites our users visits, what content they enjoy, etc.
It will not be possible to customize your geographical preferences such as time zone, currency or language.
Overall we will not be able to perform web analytics on visitors and web traffic, which will make it difficult for the website to be competitive. It’ll also be harder to tell if you are a “human” visitor or an automated application that publishes spam.
It will not be possible to show sectorized advertising, which will reduce the advertising revenue of the website. Enroyd.com will probably no longer be self-sustaining.
- … enabling all the functionalities of our website
- … tracking our users’ preferences and offering interesting content. For example: if we see that a particular site receives less visitors, we’ll try to review its content and make it more appealing.
