How to unset or clear cookies

Cookies are just small files of data that websites can send to your computer (via your browser) for all sorts of legitimate reasons. By law, you now have the choice and responsibility to decide which sites can and can’t use which cookies. To help you manage them efficiently, all browsers give you tools to control your cookies. So you can keep them (permanently or for a certain amount of time) or completely delete them.

At Aptaclub we recommend the “All About Cookies” website. It’s published by an independent body and is a good source of information about cookies and how to organise yours. The following pages could be particularly handy:
