They allow us to identify those devices when they return to a site, in order to provide you with a more seamless experience, facilitating your use of Kelly’s websites, and/or to aid Kelly in improving the user experience. You can set your browser to notify you before you receive a cookie, giving you the option of whether to accept it. You can also set your browser to turn off cookies.
