Your choices

Cookies provide much of the functionality available from today’s websites. But certain cookies can also be used to track your activities and interests across the internet.  Although this tracking is not normally for anything more intrusive than behavioural advertising, even this might cause you concern over the level of information being collected.

There are a number of methods for controlling cookies. The Information Commissioner’s website provides a good summary of your options for blocking or deleting them (https://ico.org.uk/for-the-public/online/cookies/). Note that some websites will lose functionality or become difficult to use if all cookies are permanently blocked. But, by using the available control options, you can normally obtain the right personal balance between website convenience and your sensitivity to this issue.
