What are cookies?

Cookies are small files that are stored on your computer support and save certain settings and certain data to exchange with our system through your browser. Basically, a distinction is made between 2 different types of cookies: session cookies that are deleted when you close your browser and temporary/permanent cookies that are stored on your computer support for a longer period of time or indefinitely. Storing this information helps us to present our websites and offers to you in a personalized way and simplifies their use in the sense that, for example, certain data you enter is saved and thus does not have to be entered constantly.

What cookies does Abarca Shoes use?

Most of the cookies we use are deleted from your hard drive when you close your browser (ie they are session cookies). Session cookies are necessary, for example, to be able to offer you the basket function when you browse various pages. In addition, we also use cookies that remain on your hard drive. In this way, when you visit the site again, it will automatically detect that you have already been there and your preferences and settings will be loaded. These temporary or permanent cookies (they can last from 1 month to 10 years) are stored on your hard drive and are automatically deleted after a predetermined period of time. These cookies have as main objective to make our proposal according to the interests of the user, in a more effective and safe way. These files allow us, for example, to show you information on our page that is specially tailored to your interests. The sole purpose of these cookies is to adjust our proposal to your wishes as a customer in the best possible way and thus be able to offer you the most comfortable navigation possible on our site.

What information is stored in cookies?

What is the segmentation by behavior of the site or "Onsite Targeting"?

On the Abarca Shoes websites, data is compiled based on cookie technology in order to optimize our advertising and our entire online offer. This information is not used to identify you individually, but is merely used to evaluate the use of the site through pseudonymised data. Thanks to this technology we can show you advertising and/or special offers and services, the content of which is based on information received from the site usage analysis system or "clickstream" (for example, advertising based on the fact that in recent days only saw ads for platform shoes). Our goal is to be able to offer you an online proposal that is as attractive as possible for you and show you advertising according to your areas of interest.

Are there cookies from other providers as well (“Third-Party-Cookies”)?

Abarca Shoes makes use of some advertisers that help to create a more interesting online proposal and websites for you. For this reason, when visiting the websites, cookies from partner companies will also be stored on your hard drive. In this case, these are temporary/permanent cookies that are automatically deleted after a stipulated period of time. These temporary or permanent cookies (they can last from 14 days to 10 years) are stored on your hard drive and are automatically deleted after a predetermined period of time. Cookies from our partner companies also contain purely pseudonymised data and even, in most cases, anonymous information. For example, information about viewed products, purchases, searched products, etc. is stored. In addition, some of our advertisers also collect information about the sites you visited before entering our page or the products that interest you in order to show you the advertising that best suits your interests.


Our websites use retargeting technologies. We use these tools to offer you a more attractive online proposition for you. This technology allows us to display advertising on the websites of our associated companies, especially aimed at Internet users who have already been interested in our store and our products. We are convinced that showing personalized advertising and according to the interests of the user in general is more interesting than random advertising without foundation. These advertisements on our partner sites are displayed based on cookie technology and an evaluation of prior site usage. This type of advertising is developed entirely under pseudonyms.

When you use our site, cookies are used and data about your use of the page is compiled, stored and used. Your information is stored in cookies that remain even after you have closed your browser and can thus be reloaded on your next visit to the site.
