Types of cookies

The cookies on websites of companies of the NOS Group and online services come from one of the following categories: 

Category 1 — cookies that are essential for providing a service 

These cookies are essential to enable customers to use the websites of companies of the NOS Group and their functionalities. Without them, services, such as the purchases basket or access to the customer area, cannot be provided. 

Category 2 — cookies for analysing services provided 

These cookies gather information as to how websites and services of companies of the NOS Group are used, such as for example the most visited web pages. This information can be used to help companies of the NOS Group to improve their pages and make them easier to use. These cookies also enable NOS to find out if the visits to companies of the NOS Group come from campaigns that these companies have requested from suppliers and third parties, and if those visits have resulted in purchases of a product or service. The cookies do not collect information that identifies the user, since all the information gathered is aggregated into non personal indicators and therefore, they are anonymous. 

Category 3 — personalization cookies 

These cookies allow websites of companies of the NOS Group to recognise user choices while they are using services of companies of the NOS Group. An example would be, when accessing the first page of a website, to know whether the user should see the version for individuals or the one for companies. They can also be used to know whether highlights and promotions have already been shown to a user in order to avoid repetition. The information that is collected through these cookies does not allow personal identity of users to be disclosed nor does this information allow their browsing activity to be monitored on websites that are not of companies of the NOS Group. 

* Companies of the NOS Group should be understood as being NOS, SGPS, S.A. and each of the companies that make up the NOS Group
