Turning Cookies Off
You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies. (For example see this “how to ban cookies” document.) However, doing so could limit the functionality of our and many other websites you might visit as cookies are a standard part of most modern websites.
It may be that your concerns around cookies relate to so called “spyware”. Rather than switching off cookies in your browser you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive.
