  • Allow you to share pages with social networks like Facebook.

You can switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies (learn how here http://www.attacat.co.uk/resources/cookies/how-to-ban). Doing so however will likely limit the functionality of our’s and a large proportion of the world’s websites 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.
