The privacy implications on this will vary from social network to social network and will be dependent on the privacy settings you have chosen on these networks.

Anonymous Visitor Statistics Cookies

I use cookies to compile visitor statistics such as how many people have visited the website, what type of technology they are using (e.g. Mac or Windows which helps to identify when the site isn't working as it should for particular technologies), how long they spend on the site, what page they look at etc. This helps me to continuously improve the website. These so called “analytics” programs also tell me, on an anonymous basis, how people reached this site (e.g. from a search engine) and whether they have been here before.

I also use:

Cookie Policy Box– The cookie information box that you see across the top of the screen uses a cookie to determine if you have clicked the accept cookies button – the cookie is called: “jsCookieCheck” and lets me know not to show it to you again. This is a direct cookie issued by the website and will stay on your browser for 1 year unless you delete it before then.

Turning Cookies Off

You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies (Learn how here). Doing so however will likely limit the functionality of my and a large proportion of the world's websites as cookies are a standard part of most modern websites

It may be that you concerns around cookies relate to so called "spyware". Rather than switching off cookies in your browser you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive. Learn more about managing cookies with antispyware software.
