4. Your cookie options
Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings preferences. However, if you limit the ability of websites to set cookies, you may limit your user experience as it may stop you from saving customized settings like login information and other personalized preferences. Please note that opting out will not remove advertising from the pages you visit; it will mean that the ads you see may not be matched to your interests. In addition, most browsers also provide functionality that lets you review and erase cookies, including Chweya cookies. Please note that some Chweya functionality may stop working properly without cookies.
