How to control and delete cookies
Most web browsers will accept cookies. However, usually you will be able to change the web browser settings to reject cookies, deactivate existing ones or to simply be informed whenever new cookies are sent to your device.
By setting their browser, users can decide to accept or reject cookies.
Please note: deactivating technical cookies completely or partially might affect the use of website features that are reserved for registered users. In contrast thereto, public content can also be used if all cookies have been deactivated.
Deactivating “third party” cookies will not affect your browsing experience at all.
Settings can be defined specifically for individual websites and web-applications. Moreover, premium browsers provide individual settings for “proprietary” and “third party” cookies.
Firefox, for instance, offers a button provided in Menu Tools-> Options -> Privacy, which allows for defining what kinds of cookies you accept or reject and for removing them.
