We Will NEVER Use Cookies to Advertise to You

NONE of the websites owned and operated by Lynn Serafinn Enterprises, LTD will EVER use marketing cookies for the purpose of creating targeted advertisements. We HATE these kinds of marketing strategies and see them as an invasion of privacy, as they allow advertisers to build up a profile about you without your consent or knowledge. Such invasive marketing is fundamentally against the ethos of our company, so we don’t use them.

Turning Cookies Off

You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies. 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.
