Each type of web browser offers ways to restrict and delete cookies. You may disable or delete browser cookies through your browser settings. Cookies generally are easy to disable or delete, but the method varies between browsers.

You can opt out of third parties collecting your Personal Information for targeted advertising purposes in the United States by visiting the National Advertising Initiative’s (NAI) opt-out page and the Digital Advertising Alliance’s (DAA) opt-out page at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/.
Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome) incorporate a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) or similar feature that signals to websites that a visitor does not want to have his or her online activity and behavior tracked. If a website operator elects to respond to a particular DNT signal, the website operator may refrain from collecting certain personal information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and there is currently no industry consensus as to what constitutes a DNT signal. Although AHWA may respond to DNT signals, many website operators do not proactively respond to DNT signals. For more information about DNT signals, visit http://allaboutdnt.com.
