How do I find out which cookies are being set on a website, and how do I control them?
Most browsers will allow you to see which cookies are stored and which site(s) have set them. You will usually need to go into the settings/preferences section of your browser to find the cookies information.
Each browser will display cookie information in a slightly different way, so you will need to check the help and support pages for your particular browser if you are unfamiliar with how to check the cookie settings.
All modern browsers should let you:
- See what cookies have been set and delete them on an individual basis.
- Block third party cookies.
- Block cookies from particular sites.
- Block all cookies from being set.
- Delete all cookies when you close your browser.
You should be aware that if you delete cookies you could lose preferences that make your browsing experience easier, including sites where you have chosen to opt-out of using cookies as this requires a cookie to be set to tell the site NOT to set any more cookies!
If you block cookies completely a lot of websites won't work at all and others will only have partial functionality.
If you only want to block third-party cookies generated by advertisers, trackers, etc, you can turn these off without affecting the cookies that make websites work.
The links below take you to the 'Help/Support' sections for each of the major browsers (cookie settings are usually in the security/privacy section), so that you can find out more about how to manage your cookies. Any browsers you install and any changes you make to your browser settings are completely at your discretion and we cannot be held liable for any issues arising from them.

Managing flash cookies
The most common types of cookies are those discussed above – HTTP cookies and you can control their use through the browser settings or plugins and similar tools.
However, as well as standard HTTP cookies there are cookies that can be set by 'Flash' objects. These are objects used by sites to play movies, sounds, etc, and they have their own storage system to log user settings. These are called Flash Local Stored Objects (LSOs).
To control these Flash cookies you should read the following document available on the Adobe website: http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager06.html
