Our site, like most websites, includes functionality provided by third parties. An example of this might be an embedded YouTube video. Disabling these cookies will likely break the functionality of the services offered by the third parties.

We also use cookies to compile visitor statistics such as how many people have visited our site, which pages are visited the most, which technology is being used to access our site (e.g. whether the site is being browsed from a Mac of Windows PC and which browser is being used) and how long people spend on our site.  These statistics aid in the continuous improvement of our site.  These analytics are completely anonymous and no personally identifiable information is recorded.

It may be that you are concerned cookies related to so called spyware.  In this instance, rather than disabling cookies in your browser (which would limit functionality), it may be preferable to install some anti-spyware software which would automatically block or delete cookies that may be considered a threat or invasive.
