However, if you are uncomfortable doing so, the "help" menu on your browser should tell you how to manage or disable cookies. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on’s settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer.

If you turn off cookies or other collection tools, you may not have access to many features that make your experience more efficient, and some of our services and features may not function properly. Note that the Website may not recognize or respond to Do Not Track (DNT) headers from web browsers.
