The “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether.
“Do Not Track” Signals
Some third parties keep track of your browsing activities in order to tailor what they present to you. In response to this targeted advertising, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) has promoted the Do Not Track (“DNT”) mechanism. DNT allows Internet users like you to control this tracking of your activity over time and across third party websites. Browsers such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari offer a DNT technology that uses a DNT header to send a signal to websites visited by the browser user about the user’s DNT preference. You can access your browser’s DNT option in your browser’s preferences.
