Five top tips
Five top tips to help you manage your online privacy.
1. Be informed
2. Look for information on the websites you’re visiting
3. Know that you have a choice
Signatories serving behavioural advertising will also provide you with more information about how to decline behavioural advertising.
4. Get a bit more familiar with the privacy settings on your computer
These can be found in the ‘options’ menu of your browser. When selecting options relating to cookies, remember, that they often make websites a bit more user-friendly (for example, remembering site preferences and language settings).

5. Choose privacy settings to suit your household’s needs
Everybody uses the internet in different ways and for varying purposes. In households where more than one person uses the same computer, we suggest that each user has its own ‘user account’. This allows privacy settings (for example cookie settings or opt out preferences) to be tailored to the needs and requirements of each user.
