HOW TO UNSET OR CLEAR COOKIES IN MOST BROWSERS

Cookies are just small files of data that websites can write to your computer (via your browser) for any number of legitimate purposes, and the law now gives you the choice and the responsibility to decide which site may and may not use which cookies. To help you manage your cookies efficiently, all browsers provide you with tools to control your cookies, allowing you to keep them (permanently or for some duration) or delete them entirely.

 

We at The Car SPA recommend the ‘All About Cookies’ website, published by an independent body, as a good source of information about cookies and how you may best organise yours. In particular, these pages:
