What is the purpose of Cookies?

The use of cookies aims to improve the user’s browsing experience, increasing the speed and efficiency of the response of the websites. It eliminates the need to repeatedly enter the same information and helps determine usefulness, interest and number of uses. Each cookie has a function and an expiry date.

The Salesian Foundation will not use for purposes other than those of collection, without prior consent, personal data stored in cookies containing personal data in cases where this is required.

Which Cookies are used on the website?

Cookies can be classified as either session cookies or persistent cookies. Session cookies automatically expire when you close your web browser. Persistent cookies remain in your web browser until their expiry date, or until you delete them. The expiration dates vary per cookie, depending on their nature and purpose, and can be seen in our cookie list:

The cookies identified in this table may be used by the Salesian Foundation strictly for the following purposes:

Essential: Some cookies are essential for you to experience the full functionality of our website. They allow us to maintain user sessions and prevent any security threats. They do not collect or store any personal information.

Analytical: These cookies store information such as the number of visitors to the website, the number of unique visitors, which pages of the website have been visited, the source of the visit, etc. This data helps us understand and analyse how well the website is performing and where it needs to be improved.

Marketing: The information stored in these cookies may also be used by third party ad providers to show you adverts on other websites in your browser.

Functional: These are cookies that assist certain non-essential functionality on our website. These functionalities include embedding content such as videos or sharing website content on social media platforms.

Preferences: These cookies help us store your browsing settings and preferences, such as language preferences, so that you have a better and more efficient experience on future visits to the website.

Each user is assigned an individual cookie, thus ensuring privacy and data security. The presentation of statistical data is made in an aggregate form and not individual, not allowing the identification of the user. In this way, it is possible to evaluate the performance of the Website, with a view to constant updating and improvement, in order to meet the tastes and needs of the user.


When sending one of our newsletters, we incorporate a small invisible graphic, or web beacon, at the bottom of the HTML e-mail. This graphic is unique to each newsletter that we send and allows us to know whether the email has been read or clicked on, as well as the location, date and time of opening and other technical information. Obtaining this data is essential for sending the newsletter and for us to improve our communications with users. Unlike Cookies, the subscriber cannot refuse the use of web beacons, so if you do not agree to their use, you should not subscribe to our newsletters.

Websites may include hyperlinks to other websites which are not under our supervision. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, we do not accept any responsibility for the privacy protection or content of these websites, but we provide these links to make it easier for our visitors to find out more information on specific topics.

How do I disable the use of cookies?
