If the user / visitor does not wish his or her information to be collected through cookies, he or she can use the settings available to most web browsers with which they can delete existing cookies and choose to either automatically reject future cookies or to decide on the rejection or acceptance of every particular cookie of the Website to their computer. It should be noted, however, that discarding cookies may result in making it more difficult or impossible to use certain parts of the Website, and / or that there is a change in its intended appearance and operation, as a permanent connection will be required.
