And to quote from last year's FAQ about Cookie Controls:
"No files are destroyed or compromised by cookies, but if it concerns you about being identified or about having your web browsing traced through the use of a cookie, either set your browser to not accept cookies or use one of the cookie blocking programs available to you."
