How to configure your Web browser

You can configure your Web browser to alert you before accepting cookies if you are using Netscape 3.0 or above, or Microsoft's Internet Explorer 3.0 or above. If you select this option, you will receive a warning every time a cookie is sent, and have the option of accepting or declining it.


If you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape browser versions 4.0 and above, you can elect to turn off all cookies and beacons, to allow some, or to be alerted before you accept them. The following instructions use the term cookies, but the settings will affect Web beacons as well.

In the left menu panel, click "Privacy and Security," then select the section titled "Cookies" and check one of the boxes labeled to reject some, reject all or warn you before setting incoming cookies. After making your selection, choose "OK."

In Version 4.0  Go to the "Edit" menu and select "Preferences." In the left menu panel, choose "Advanced". On the right panel, find the section titled "Cookies" and check one of the boxes labeled to reject some, reject all or warn you before setting incoming cookies. After making your selection, choose "OK."

In Version 3.0  Go to the "Options menu" and select "Network Preferences." Then select the "Protocols" tab. Locate the section titled "Show an alert" and check the box labeled "Accepting a Cookie."
