Persistent cookies can be removed by following Internet browser help file directions.

We store a cookie on each user’s machine that contains a username and encrypted password. You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. If you reject all cookies, you will not be able to use Affinity Media and Publishing Group Network products or services that require you to “sign in,” and you may not be able to take full advantage of all offerings.
