How can I control my cookie consents?
We don't allow you to turn off cookies under the "Strictly Necessary" category because that would break our website. However, our Cookie Consent Manager lets you toggle on and off the other types of cookies. You can access the Cookie Consent Manager from the cookie banner on our website. Keep in mind, though, that some parts of our website won't work if you turn them off.
For controlling your cookies on other sites we recommend visiting aboutcookies.org or allaboutcookies.org. There are also some great (and free!) plug-ins that help block ads and trackers as you traverse the web. Two of our favourites are Privacy Badger and Ghostery.
