Tracking technologies generally
Regular cookies may generally be disabled or removed by tools available as part of most commercial browsers, and in some instances blocked in the future by selecting certain settings. However, if you don’t accept cookies, you won’t receive the benefits that cookies provide. For example, a cookie may enable you to resume a video you watched in a previous visit. Further, cookies may be necessary for services to work as intended, such as keeping you logged in to a secure part of our site. Browsers offer different functionalities and options so you may need to set them separately. Please be aware that your ability to limit browser-based Tracking Technologies is subject to your browser settings and limitations.Your browser settings may allow you to automatically transmit a "Do Not Track" signal to online services you visit. Note, however, there is no industry consensus as to what site and app operators should do with regard to these signals. Accordingly, we do not monitor or take action with respect to "Do Not Track" signals or other mechanisms. For more information on "Do Not Track," visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.
