Push Notifications

The website allows users to accept Push Notifications, which means you will be notified whenever we post a new Article in the News section.

Because this is an Opt-In service, not related to our email newsletter subscription service, if you wish to discontinue receiving push notifications you will need to make the changes on your own browser/device. The following provides help on how to turn off push Notifications for Web Browsers.

How to Turn Off Push Notifications in Google Chrome

If you use Chrome, you can prevent websites from asking for permission to send push notifications, which essentially disables them altogether. The browser also lets you block notifications for specific websites.

To access those settings, go to Settings > Privacy and security, and select the Site Settings option:

chrome site settings
On the next screen, under the Permissions settings, click on Notifications:
chrome notifications
To turn off notifications from Choose, click on the 3-dots to the right of the website and choose “Remove”.

Choose Cornwall Push Notifications

Conversely, if you click on the Add button, you can also add websites to receive notifications from (however not all websites offer this service).

How to Turn Off Push Notifications in Safari

Disabling push notifications in Safari is rather straightforward. To do so, access the Preferences Websites > Notifications settings within your browser. Once you’re in, you’ll see a list of websites that have requested permission to send you push notifications:

Push notification settings Safari

You can disallow notifications from specific websites through that list and vice versa. You’ll also notice an option that reads Allow websites to ask for permission to send push notifications at the bottom of the Notifications window.

Turning off that option will prevent sites from requesting permission to send you notifications.

How to Turn Off Push Notifications in Microsoft Edge

As with most other browsers, Microsoft Edge provides a variety of methods for disabling, blocking, and whitelisting notifications. The browser also includes a feature called Quiet notifications, which bundles all push notifications under an icon so that they don’t interrupt you. You can review them at any time.

To access Edge’s notifications settings, go to Settings > Cookies and site permissions, and select the Notifications option:

edge notifications
Microsoft Edge’s cookies and site permissions settings

On the next screen, disable the Ask before sending option if you want to turn off push notifications in Edge altogether.

If you’d rather block or allow certain websites, you can click on the Add buttons next to each setting:

disable push edge
You’ll also notice the Quiet notifications requests option, which should be turned on by default. With that setting enabled, notifications won’t interrupt you while using the browser.
