5. Disabling / enabling cookies

You have the ability to accept or decline the use of cookies by changing your browser settings. You can also manually remove cookies from your system. However, we would like you to have the best experience of our website and it is likely that disabling cookies will limit the functionality of the CILEX website.

If you are concerned about the use of cookies in relation to “spyware” you can use anti-spyware software to delete cookies that may be considered invasive, rather than disabling cookies altogether.

6. Consent

By accepting Cookies with your browser settings and using the CILEx website, you consent to the processing of data about you by CILEx, its subsidiaries and Google in the manner for the purposes set out above.

As long as CILEx does obtains consent the first time that sets cookies, CILEx does not have to repeat it every time the same person visits its website. However, is good to keep in mind that devices may be used by different people. If there is likely to be more than one user, so CILEx repeats this process at suitable intervals.
