Here is some useful information about setting cookies on browsers:

Most browsers are set by default to accept the use of all cookies and trackers. You can change this setting to select the cookies you wish to use, or refuse the use of cookies. This setting must be made on each of your terminals (computer, tablet, smartphone, etc.).

The methods for setting and deleting cookies are different for each browser. These procedures are described in the help menu of your browser. You will find below the methods of setting the parameters of the tracers for the best-known browsers:

Please note that if you choose to delete all cookies from your terminal via your browser, we will no longer have information about your choice of settings, and will be forced to ask you to re-set your choices the next time you visit our site. The same applies if you use a new browser or new terminal. As these settings are entirely the responsibility of the browsers, we do not guarantee that they will work properly.

More information on settings, by purpose:

Browser settings are sometimes insufficient. If you wish, you can further refine your settings, by targeting the purposes of each cookie:
