4. INFORMATION AND OBTAINING CONSENT FOR THE INSTALLATION and its subdomains will always seek to establish adequate mechanisms to obtain the User’s consent for the installation of cookies that require it. When a user accesses our website, a pop-up appears informing them of the existence of cookies and that by accepting them, they give their consent for the installation of cookies.


The user can reject the installation of all those cookies, according to their preferences, except those that they expressly authorize or those that are of a technical profile and must be installed to guarantee the correct functioning of the web page, indicating those that they wish to install or reject in the pop-up or cookie acceptance window that appears when entering the home page. However, there are other ways to prevent cookies from being installed on your computer, as we indicate below.

The user can configure his browser to accept, or not, the cookies he receives or so that the browser notifies him when a server wants to save a cookie. If some technical cookies are disabled, the correct functioning of some of the web utilities is not guaranteed.

The user may exclude Google Analytics “analytical and advertising” cookies from being stored on their terminal by means of the exclusion systems provided by Google Analytics.

Below, we also provide some examples of how to disable cookies:
