How can I opt-out of cookies?
Cookies are used by Google Adsense, which provides the unobtrusive third-party advertising visible on the site. HOPS is provided free of charge, so adveritising provides an important means of supporting the site. However, if you would still rather opt-out of the setting of cookies for the purpose of advertising, you can visit https://www.google.co.uk/settings/ads, and select "Opt out of interest based ads". This will be applied for all sites using Google Adsense, not only HOPS. Note, this will not prevent advertisements from being displayed altogether.
