We only use one cookie on this site, for the sole purpose of storing your chosen setting for the text sizing via the switcher buttons towards the top right of each page.
This cookie stores nothing more than your selected text size and nothing else.
Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies. (For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector.) This may, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one.
