4.- OUR RECOMMENDATION.
If the user wishes, he can disable our own cookies. However, if he/she does so, it is possible that some functionalities may not be executed correctly or that browsing may be more difficult. Therefore, we recommend keeping them enabled and, only if the user wishes, to delete them when leaving the website.
(i) Through the cookie settings panel available with each login: the user can accept by checking the ACCEPT box indicated in the information banner that heads the website, or in the cookie configurator itself, by checking the check in the type of cookies you want to accept. In this case, the user will be expressing their consent so that we can host and use the types of cookies that we have described in the previous section, on the device from which you are browsing.
(ii) Through the browser settings: In addition, where technically possible and effective, the user can accept the processing of cookies through the settings you have made the browser.

You will see the options available for cookies.

If you are using Internet Explorer, you can go to the "Tools" menu (usually in the top right corner, just to the right of the navigation tabs), click on the "Internet Options" option and, in the pop-up menu, click on the "Security" tab. You will be able to choose one of Microsoft's preset security levels or customize your own security level.

D. More information on how cookies work, how to use them and how to manage them.
In addition, the user can initiate a private navigation with your browser so that your system does not store unwanted information on your hard drive.
You can even see all the cookies that your browser stores on your hard drive and, if you wish, delete them one by one. For example, if your operating system is Windows 7 and you use version 10 of the Internet Explorer browser, the cookies that this browser stores on your hard drive are usually located in the following path: C:\Users[UserName]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\.
Finally, the user should be aware that most browsers provide information on how to prevent the acceptance of new cookies, how to notify when a new cookie is received, or how to disable cookies altogether. If you want to know more about how cookies work, we recommend that you consult the "help" displayed on the toolbars of your browsers (for example, pressing F1 on Windows computers will also take you to help).
6.- MODIFICATION OF THE COOKIES POLICY.
D'COMO can unilaterally modify the Cookies Policy, in the event that there is a change in current legislation, jurisprudential doctrine or internal criteria. Any change introduced in this policy will be published in this same address.
