You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” file. Cookies help GYORK&VEIL improve the Sites and to deliver more personalized service by enabling GYORK&VEIL to estimate audience size and usage patterns; to store information about your preferences; to speed up your searches and to recognize you when you return to the Sites.
