When you access grancanariamountainbike.com, or use one of our services, our system or that of one of our partners may set or read cookies and / or other types of identifiers about the browser and / or the device you are using.

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on the computer of someone who views a website in order to record some information about the visit, as well as to create a system to recognize the user even at a later time. The identifiers of the devices, however, are generated by collecting and processing some information such as the IP address and / or the user agent (browser version, type and version of the operating system) or other characteristics of the device, again in order to reconnect certain information to a specific user.

A website can set a cookie on the browser only if the preferences configured for the latter allow it. It is important to know that a browser can allow a specific website to access only cookies set by it and not those set by other websites: there is no risk to your privacy in this regard.
