Remembering your search settings
There is no way to prevent these cookies being set other than to not use our site.
So you can easily “like” or share our content on the likes of Facebook and Twitter, we have included sharing buttons on our site.
Cookies are set by:
Facebook Social Plugin Widgets – Share This provide us with lots of sharing buttons all in one neat package
The privacy implications on this will vary from social network to social network and will be dependent on the privacy settings you have chosen on these networks.
Google Anaytics – this gathers anonymous data about visitors using this site and then provides us with visitor statistics, details of page views, and so on. You can think of it as being a bit like CCTV but one that automatically blurs your face so we can see what people have done, but not who has done it. If you are anti-Google you can opt-out of being tracked by Google Analytics at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout (although we’d prefer you didn’t, as this data is seriously helpful to us in improving our website).
You can usually switch off cookies by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies (Learn how here). Doing so however will likely limit the functionality of our’s and a large proportion of the world’s websites as cookies are a standard part of most modern websites.
It may be that your concerns around cookies relate to so called “spyware”. Rather than switching off cookies in your browser you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive. Learn more about managing cookies with antispyware software.
