Such consent may be expressed in a general manner, by interacting with the short notice banner on the landing page of the site, in the manner indicated in that banner, or may be provided or denied selectively, in the manner indicated below. This consent is tracked during subsequent visits. However, the user always has the possibility to revoke all or part of the consent already expressed.
