What to do if you do not want cookies to be set
Some people find the concept of a website storing information about them on their computer intrusive, especially when this information is stored and used by a third party without their knowledge. While this is normally harmless, for example when gathering analytics data, you may not wish to see tailored advertising for example. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies. The method of achieving this will depend on the web browser you are using. Typically you can control how your browser handles cookies by accessing the Help function on your browser.
