Current concerns with cookies

There are many legitimate uses for cookies to enhance convenience and efficiency. However, some uses of cookies can lead to privacy concerns. These concerns typically emerge when a cookie holds personal information identifying you (e.g. a person's name, e-mail address, billing information, address or similar), or is used across multiple sites to track users and internet usage.

ShowbizSites.com does not use any of its first-party cookies to hold any personal information or track users across multiple sites. On some of our sites (ShowbizSites.com and ShowbizSupermarket.com) we use third party social sharing tools that set third-party cookies, which allow you to share content via social networks.

Other concerns some users have are around privacy, and in particular those third party cookies which are generated by advertisers which track browsing activity across different sites. For all cookies, there are steps that you can take to manage your user preferences on how these are set.

 

How do I manage cookies or turn them off?

You can manage the cookies stored on your computer, or turn them off completely, through your browser settings. Be aware that this may affect your browsing experience or even prevent you from using certain services such as those with a secure login, which require cookies to be set in order to work.

All modern browsers will let you change your cookie settings to give you broad control over whether cookies can be set or not. For more information, visit the help section for the browser you use.

Here are a few of the most popular:

Cookie settings in Internet Explorer
Cookie settings in Firefox
Cookie settings in Chrome
Cookie settings in Safari

If you are concerned about third party cookies generated by advertisers, you can visit theYour Online Choices website which allows you to turn these off.

The Network Advertising Initiative also provides opt-out controls for targeted advertising by NAI member ad networks.

Please bear in mind that there are many more networks listed on the Network Advertising Initative than those that we use at ShowbizSites.

Current concerns with cookies

There are many legitimate uses for cookies to enhance convenience and efficiency. However, some uses of cookies can lead to privacy concerns. These concerns typically emerge when a cookie holds personal information identifying you (e.g. a person's name, e-mail address, billing information, address or similar), or is used across multiple sites to track users and internet usage.

ShowbizSites.com does not use any of its first-party cookies to hold any personal information or track users across multiple sites. On some of our sites (ShowbizSites.com and ShowbizSupermarket.com) we use third party social sharing tools that set third-party cookies, which allow you to share content via social networks.

Other concerns some users have are around privacy, and in particular those third party cookies which are generated by advertisers which track browsing activity across different sites. For all cookies, there are steps that you can take to manage your user preferences on how these are set.

 

How do I manage cookies or turn them off?

You can manage the cookies stored on your computer, or turn them off completely, through your browser settings. Be aware that this may affect your browsing experience or even prevent you from using certain services such as those with a secure login, which require cookies to be set in order to work.

All modern browsers will let you change your cookie settings to give you broad control over whether cookies can be set or not. For more information, visit the help section for the browser you use.

Here are a few of the most popular:

Cookie settings in Internet Explorer
Cookie settings in Firefox
Cookie settings in Chrome
Cookie settings in Safari

If you are concerned about third party cookies generated by advertisers, you can visit theYour Online Choices website which allows you to turn these off.

The Network Advertising Initiative also provides opt-out controls for targeted advertising by NAI member ad networks.

Please bear in mind that there are many more networks listed on the Network Advertising Initative than those that we use at ShowbizSites.
