The session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies will be removed on a pre-determined expiry date, or when deleted by you.

Most web browsers allow user privacy settings to block either all cookies, or third party cookies. Blocking cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one. Please visit: www.aboutcookies.org for comprehensive information if you do not know what cookies are, how to control or delete them, or how to change your cookie settings in a wide variety of different web browsers.
