Turning Cookies Off
You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser’s settings to stop it from accepting cookies (Learn how here). Doing so however will likely limit the functionality of my website (along with a large proportion of the rest of the Internet), 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.
