How do you use cookies and other tracking tools?

Session Cookies are also used by the server to store information about user page activities so users can easily pick up where they left off on the server's pages.

You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. The help feature on most browsers provide information on how to accept cookies, disable cookies or to notify you when receiving a new cookie.
