8.3 The unconventional clause we've added ourselves in case you're confused: Many cookies have positive uses so here at Soundart Radio we don't usually block them, but they can clog up your computer too, so we do routinely clean cookies off our computer every few days. There are free pieces of downloadable software which can do this. At the moment we are using CCleaner from Piriform, but of course it's up to you to find one you like.
