Managing Cookie Preferences
Many web browsers are set to accept cookies by default, and only you can manage your browser settings. To may see the list of CA and selected partner cookies on our website(s) and make choices about those cookies, please visit our Cookie Consent Tool here. In addition, the Help portion of your web browser, which is most often found on your browser’s toolbar, typically tells you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies altogether. Please not that if you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to get the benefit of some of the features of this website or other websites that you visit.
Do Not Track
Certain browsers like Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari offer a “Do Not Track” or “DNT” option that sends a signal to websites visited by the user about the user’s browser DNT preference setting. Because uniform standards for “Do Not Track” have not been established, CA does not process or respond to “Do Not Track” signals.
