4. How to configure or disable cookies?

For us to use cookies, user consent is required (except for those that are technical or necessary). Upon accessing the website, a banner with four tabs corresponding to the different types of cookies used will be displayed: “Technical or Necessary” and “Analytical”. The user can disable any of the cookie categories except for the “Necessary” ones, which are essential for the functioning of the web.

Once these tabs have been reviewed, the user has three buttons: if they click on the “Allow all” button, the use of all cookies will be allowed. If they want to allow only the use of those categories or tabs that have been enabled, they can select the “Allow Selection” button. If they click on “Deny”, they will reject all cookies except for the necessary ones.

If, once cookies have been accepted, the user wants to modify their consent, they can do so by clicking on the logo located in the lower left corner of the screen: a window will unfold where there is a button to “Change consent”: clicking here, the user can return to the initial menu of the banner explained above with its different options.

This possibility of changing consent is valid for own cookies: if the user wishes to change, block, or delete third-party cookies, they must do so through the configuration options of their internet browser, which can be found by clicking on the following links:

5. How long are cookies stored?

Cookies are stored for the time indicated above as “Time” for each of them, that is, during browsing if they are “session” cookies or until they expire if they are “persistent”.

The retention periods for third-party cookies can be consulted in the Privacy Policies of these third parties.
Once the cookie has expired, it can be renewed if the user agrees to its use again.
