You can block cookies for any site in most browsers. However, some features of our site could work properly.

Most browsers have an "incognito" (Chrome), "InPrivate" (Edge and Explorer) or "private" (Safari, Firefox, Opera) mode. Using this mode, all cookies will be deleted after you close the browser, so your information can't be tracked from one session to other. Using this mode, every browsing session all user's cookies will be set as new by the sites visited, making the user appear to websites as a completely new user, and reducing the total information that cookies can store about a especific user. That's why in private mode browsing you see "accept cookies" and other similar messages from sites you previously accepted or denied


How can I modify or revoke my previous consent?

If he or she wants to revoke or modify that consent, in order to get the cookie consent message displayed again, the user must remove cookies associated with our domain, preferently, or at least the cookie named FCCDCF.
