Some of the Web analytics firms used on this site may place “tracking cookies” on your computer. These are small text files that can tell such companies what you are doing online, even though they usually don’t record your name or other personally identifiable information. They are used all over the Web. But we want you to know how to get rid of these tracking cookies if you like. We’d prefer a totally opt-in system, but, as far as we know, the ad industry doesn’t have a practical one as of now. You can change the preferences or settings in your Web browser to control cookies. The Help menu on the menu bar of most browsers will tell you how. In some cases, you can choose to accept cookies from the primary site, but block them from third parties. In others, you can block cookies from specific advertisers, or clear out all cookies.
