can you do if you don't want cookies on your computer?
people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile
device intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third
party without the website visitor knowing that it is happening. Although this
is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising
popped up on your screen that has been targeted to your interests. If you don't
want to receive cookies when you visit websites, you can modify your browser so
that it notifies you when cookies are sent to it or you can restrict or refuse
cookies altogether. You can also delete cookies that have already been set. If
you wish to restrict or block web browser cookies which are set on your computer
or other device which can access the internet then you can do this through your
browser settings. The Help button on your browser should explain how to do that.
