How to control and delete cookies
Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although this is generally quite harmless you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of that website.
Alternatively, you can browse Internet in private mode in your browsers. In that mode any personal informations (including cookies) are not stored in browser cache (or stored only for session time, if necessary).
