Deleting and blocking cookies

The user can delete and/or block cookies, for all browsing or for one specific website. This configuration must be carried out in each browser, if it is only done in one browser and not the others on the same device, then it is assumed that cookies are accepted on the other sites. The editor cannot carry out this action for the user, the user must do this in a responsible, specific way for each browser and/or device required.

As each browser has different configurations, the user should go to the help section of each one to see each specific case. In this section the most common ways are mentioned, however, due to browser or operative system updates which are used, these could vary. The user should always check the user manual for his/her browser, this is only a guideline.
