Third parties apply cookies to users that leave the website by clicking on links or products displaying on our website to adverts or to websites, to apply tracking information to the user’s visit to these retailers’ websites. This tracking information helps determine whether we are paid for our display services to these retailers. Most of the display advertisements that you see on the website are generated by third parties. We do not have access to these third-party cookies, other than allowing them to be served, and hence have no role to play in these cookies at all. If you would like to disable “third party” cookies generated by advertisers or providers of targeted advertising services, you can turn them off by going to the third party’s website and getting them to generate a one-time “no thanks” cookie that will stop any further cookies being written to your machine.
