Cookies allow a website, among other things, to store and retrieve information about the browsing habits of a user or their equipment and, depending on the information they contain and the way they use their equipment.
Thus, there are cookies that obtain information related to the number of pages visited, the city to which the IP address from which it is accessed is assigned, the number of new users, the frequency and recurrence of visits, the time of visit, the browser, the operator or the type of terminal from which the visit is made.

Can I revoke my consent to the installation of cookies?
This website, by default, does not install unnecessary cookies.
The visitor may allow the installation, partial or total, of the cookies that we use to obtain metrics of visits and advertisements, user behaviour and preferences, and to know what content is most attractive and interesting to our visitors.
The visitor, in accordance with the regulations, may revoke the consent previously granted whenever he/she wishes to do so. To do this, you must use the "Cookie Management" tool that appears at the bottom left of our website.
What types of cookies do exist?
We make a main division of types of cookies, depending on whether they are necessary or not for the functioning of our website. Secondly, they can be classified depending on where the cookies are sent from and who processes the data obtained from these cookies (own or third party). Thus, we could distinguish:
These are those that are sent to the user's terminal equipment from a computer or domain managed by the editor itself and from which the service requested by the user is provided and are necessary for the normal operation of the website, or to comply with any legal obligation (e.g. to obtain consent to install cookies).
Normally, they are those that do not influence the operability of the site. That is to say, the installation of these cookies will not influence the operation of the website. However, the contents will be less accurate or attractive to the visitor as we will not be able to determine the user's preferences.
Generally, although not always, these cookies are sent to the user's terminal equipment from a computer or domain that is not managed by the editor, but by another entity that processes the data obtained through the cookies. In the event that the cookies are installed from a computer or domain managed by the editor itself, but the information collected through these is managed by a third party, they cannot be considered as own cookies.
Third-party cookies used on our websites are mainly used to understand the performance of the website, how the audience interacts with our website, keep our services secure, analyse the number and sources of visits, etc.
