Cookies used on our site
Our site, like most websites, includes functionality provided by third parties. An example of this might be an embedded YouTube video. Disabling these cookies will likely break the functionality of the services offered by the third parties.
It may be that you are concerned cookies related to so called spyware. In this instance, rather than disabling cookies in your browser (which would limit functionality), it may be preferable to install some anti-spyware software which would automatically block or delete cookies that may be considered a threat or invasive.
