– Allow from visited websites: Safari accepts cookies and website data only from websites you visit. Safari uses your existing cookies to determine whether you have visited a website before. Selecting this option helps prevent websites that have embedded content in other websites you browse from storing cookies and data on your Mac.

– Always allow: Safari allows all websites, third parties, and advertisers to store cookies and other data on your Mac.

– Prompt for each website once each day: Safari prompts you once each day for each website you visit that requests use of location services.

– Deny without prompting: All websites are denied access to location services and Safari does not prompt you

– Ask websites not to track you: Some websites keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. You can have Safari ask sites and their third-party content providers (including advertisers) not to track you. With this option turned on, each time Safari fetches content from a website, Safari adds a request not to track you, however it’s up to each website to choose, or not, to honor this request.
