They allow us to identify your actions and preferences, analyze visits and help us understand how users get to our site and improve our services.
- Functionality Cookies: allow www.tupropertyinspain.com to remember decisions made by the user, such as their login or identifier. The information in these cookies is collected anonymously (i.e., it does not contain your name, address, or other data).
