At El Corte Inglés we use cookies with the aim of providing a better service and giving you a better browsing experience. We would like to inform you clearly and precisely about the cookies we use, detailing below what a cookie is, what it is for, what types of cookies we use, their purpose and how you can configure them or deactivate them as required.

What is a cookie and what is it for?

A “cookie” is a small file stored on the user’s computer, tablet, smartphone or any other device with information about navigation.

The collection of “cookies” from all our users helps us improve the quality of our website, allowing us to monitor which pages are useful, which are not, and which can be improved.

Cookies are essential for the internet to function, providing countless advantages in the provision of interactive services, facilitating the navigation and usability of our website. Under no circumstances will the cookies be able to harm your equipment. On the contrary, active cookies help us to identify and resolve errors.

What type of cookies do we use?


Own cookies

These are sent to your machine from our own equipment or domain, from which we provide the service you are requesting.

Third party cookies

These are sent to your equipment from equipment or a domain managed by another collaborating entity, not by us. For example, those used by social networks or by external content such as Google Maps.


Session cookies

These are temporary cookies that remain on your browser’s cookie file until you leave the web page; as a result, no cookie remains on your computer’s hard drive. The information obtained by means of these cookies is used to analyse traffic patterns on the website. Eventually, this allows us to provide a better experience to improve content and facilitate use.

Persistent cookies

These are stored on the hard drive and our website reads them every time you visit. A permanent website has a certain expiration date. The cookie will stop working after this date. We use these cookies, in general, to facilitate shopping and registration services.


Technical cookies

These are necessary to ensure that our webpage functions well and that users can navigate properly. For example, they allow us to monitor traffic and data communication, access restricted areas, carry out the shopping process of an order, use safety elements, store content to be able to share videos or share content via social networks.

Personalisation cookies

These allow you to access the service with some predefined characteristics based on a series of criteria, such as language, browser type through which you access the service, regional configuration from which the service is accessed, etc.

Analysis cookies

These allow us to quantify the number of users and therefore measure and statistically analyse the use that users make of the services provided. To do so, your navigation on our webpage is analysed with the aim of improving the range of products and services we offer.

Advertising cookies

These allow the advertising spaces that may be included on our webpage to be managed in the most effective way possible.

Behavioural advertising cookies

These cookies store information about user behaviour obtained through continued observation. Thanks to these cookies, we can get to know internet browsing habits and show you advertising relating to your navigation profile.
