How do I delete cookies?
Another way to opt out of cookies and similar technologies is through the settings of the browser or device you use to access our services. Internet browsers such as Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Edge have settings that allow you to control how your information is collected and shared. These browsers usually allow you to view all cookies that are stored on your device, clear your cache of cookies, and adjust your preferences for future collection. If you do not give permission, cookies that have already been stored on your device on the basis of your previous permission will not be automatically deleted.
The downside of using browser or device settings to withdraw your consent is that it disables many of the cookies and similar technologies that are essential for the proper functioning of our services.
