Our own cookies
There is no way to prevent these cookies being set other than to not use our site.
Visitor Statistics Cookies
The cookie ID in each DoubleClick cookie is essential to these applications. For example, DoubleClick uses cookie IDs to keep a log of which ads show to which browsers. When it’s time to serve an ad to a browser, DoubleClick can use the browser’s cookie ID to check which DoubleClick ads have already been delivered to that particular browser. That’s how DoubleClick avoids showing ads the user has already seen. In the same way, cookie IDs allow DoubleClick to log conversions related to ad requests—such as when a user views a DoubleClick ad and later uses the same browser to visit the advertiser’s website and make a purchase.
DoubleClick cookies contain no personally identifiable information. With the user’s and publisher's permission, information associated with the DoubleClick cookie may be added to the user’s Google Account.
If a signed out user opts out using the Ads Settings, the unique DoubleClick cookie ID on the user’s browser is overwritten with the phrase “OPT_OUT” and is not used for ads personalization. Because there is no longer a unique cookie ID, the opt-out cookie cannot be associated with a particular browser.
If a signed in user opts out using the Ads Settings, the unique DoubleClick cookie ID on the user’s browser will remain. However, the DoubleClick cookie ID is not used for ads personalization while signed in.
Turning Cookies Off
You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies (Learn how here). 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 you 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.
