You should be aware that applications you use to access our Site, such as your website browser, may also place cookies on your device when visiting our Site, or other websites. An example of this would be where you sign in to Google Chrome using a Google Account (see Section 6 below). We do not have control over these third party cookies, so you will need to manage these cookies in the settings of the relevant applications.
