Withdrawing consent using your browser or device settings:
The easiest way to withdraw your consent to Cookies is via the settings of the browser or device you are using to access our services. Internet browsers such as Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera and Edge have settings that allow you to control the way your information is collected and shared. Typically, these browsers allow you to view all the cookies they are storing on your device, delete your cache of cookies, and adjust your preferences for future collection. Guides on how to access and use such functionality are available at https://www.aboutcookies.org.
The downside of using browser or device settings to withdraw your consent is that it will have the effect of disabling many of the Cookies that are essential to enabling our services to function - the impact of this is that some or all of the features and functionality we offer may stop working. Because of this, we would recommend taking a more targeted approach to withdrawing your consent. For example, if you wanted stop Cookies being used for the purposes of serving you interest-based advertisements, then instead of blocking all cookies, you could instead opt-out of these on a case-by-case basis following the steps set out below.
Opting out of Cookies being used for Advertising:

However, you'll continue to receive interest-based advertising that's delivered by us when you're on our services.
