7. How to manage cookies
You can enable or disable cookies by changing your website browser settings to accept or reject cookies as required. How to do this will depend on your browser.
First, establish which internet browser is set to default use on your machine (or which browser you use most often). To find out what it is, simply open the internet as usual and follow the steps below:
On the toolbar at the top of your browser, click ‘Help.’ Choose the ‘About’ option from the drop-down menu. This will tell you the browser type and version.
Click on the Apple icon in the top left corner of your browser and choose the 'About' option. This will tell you the browser type and version. Once you know the browser you’re using, the below guides for each browser will help you find the cookie settings.
Click on the ‘Tools’ tab in the menu area of your browser. Select the ‘Internet Options’ option. This should open a pop-up box with tabbed options. Select the ‘Privacy’ tab. Internet Explorer has a high, medium, or low auto-adjust system for internet content handling. You can configure your own settings by clicking the ‘Advanced’ tab, and ticking ‘Override automatic cookie handling’. Settings above medium will disable cookies; medium or below will enable cookies.
Click on the 'Tools' tab on the menu area of your browser. Select the ‘Options’ option. This should open a pop-up window with tabs along the top. Select ‘Privacy’. You should now see options for ‘Tracking’ and ‘History’. Under the ‘History’ drop down menu, select ‘Use customer settings for history’ to adjust your cookie settings.
Click on the spanner icon in the browser. Select the ‘Settings’ option. This should open a box with tabs along the left side. Select the ‘Under the Hood’ tab. When this page is loaded, select the tab you will see at the top called ‘Content Settings’. This brings up your content controls including cookie permissions.
Click on the cog icon at the top of your browser. Select the ‘Preferences’ option. This should open a pop up window with several tabs along the top. From this list select ‘Privacy’. This will open the tab page that allows you to control the cookie settings.
