In themselves they might just be helpful in putting you in touch with a company which can service your interests. But for most people the resultant popup ads and spam mail is just a huge annoyance.

One of the most effective cookie controls lies within Outlook Express.
Just Click on Tools, then Options, and then Privacy, and you will be able to select the level of cookie acceptance require. You can even override the system to always accept or refuse cookies from particular websites.

Providing a blank cookie is their way of getting round the problem. These sites should also enable you to confirm that any personal data already registered through their cookies will not be used for future advertising.
