Without cookies, many things on websites would not be able to work: for example, without cookies, if you logged in to the Wishlist Music website to view restricted content you would have to log in again every time you looked at a different page.
A visit to a page on the Wishlist Music website may generate the following types of cookie:
- Registration and preferences cookies
- Anonymous analytics cookies

How do I turn cookies off?
It is usually possible to stop your browser accepting cookies, or to stop it accepting cookies from a particular website. However, we cannot tell if you are signed in without using cookies, so you would not be able to post comments and you may have problems using or accessing other parts of the Wishlist Music website.
All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. You can usually find these settings in the ‘options’ or ‘preferences’ menu of your browser. To understand these settings, the ‘Help’ option in your browser may provide useful details.
