Unfortunately in most cases there are no industry standard options for disabling cookies without completely disabling the functionality and features they add to this site.

ASP.NET_SessionId

ASP.NET

This cookie is used by ASP.NET to store the current session of the user. As you navigate to the site, the server establishes a unique session for you that lasts for the duration of your visit. For each session, ASP.NET maintains session state information where applications can store session information. ASP.NET must track a session ID for each user so that it can map the user to session state information found on the server. By default, ASP.NET uses a nonpersistent cookie to store the session state. The information stored on the server will remain in the server’s memory until the session is either explicitly removed or expired (by default a session expires after 20 minutes of inactivity). The cookie itself contains no personal information.
