Web Browser Opt-Out
Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you do not want to allow cookies, then you may have other options. Your browser may provide you with a set of tools to manage cookies. You can usually set your browser to refuse some cookies or all cookies. For example, some browsers give you a choice to allow first-party cookies but block third-party cookies. What is the difference between first-party and third-party cookies?
- A "first-party" cookie is served by the page or domain that you are visiting. For example, when you visit Cobit.com or P.careers and if we serve a cookie for purposes of remembering your settings, then that is a first-party cookie.
- A "third-party" cookie is served by a company that does not operate the page or domain you are visiting. For example, when you visit Cobit.com or P.careers and if Google serves a cookie on Cobit.com for Cobit's analysis, then that is a third-party cookie.
