2. Setting cookie preferences
Users can enable or disable cookies at any time. When first logging onto the CMBV Expodcast website, a banner appears at the bottom of the screen outlining the process of inserting cookies or other technologies. It also indicates that continuing to browse the CMBV website (e.g. by opening a new page or clicking on a site element) enables the cookies on the hard drive. The same applies if users click on the X in the right of the banner at the bottom of the screen. Depending on the type of cookie, enabling insertion on the hard drive and the reading of cookies by the CMBV may be obligatory.

They include web analytics cookies, advertising cookies (which the CMBV does not use) and social media-sharing cookies (notably Facebook, YouTube, Twitter & LinkedIn). Web analytics cookies compile statistics on the use of website elements (such as content or pages visited).
