Cookie security and privacy issues

Due to their flexibility and the fact that many of the largest and most-visited websites use cookies by default, cookies are almost unavoidable. Disabling cookies will lock a user out of many of the most widely-used sites on the Internet like YouTube, Gmail, Yahoo mail, and others. Even search settings require cookies for language settings. Therefore you should be aware that by declining cookies on our site – you may find from time to time some pages will not respond as you anticipate.
