The User can delete this Cookie and revoke access to the Services through social networks updating their preferences in the social network that they specify.
ANALYTICAL COOKIES: Each time a User visits a Service, a tool from an external provider (Google Analytics) generates an analytic Cookie on the User's computer. This Cookie that is only generated during the visit, will serve in future visits to the Services of this website to identify the visitor anonymously. The main objectives that are pursued are:
Allow the anonymous identification of navigating Users through the "Cookie" (identifies browsers and devices, not people) and therefore the approximate count of the number of visitors and their trend over time.
Identify anonymously the most visited contents and therefore more attractive for Users

Important: Unless the User decides to register on this website, the "Cookie" will never be associated with any personal data that can identify him. These Cookies will only be used for statistical purposes that help optimize the experience of the Users on the site.
