What are cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of data in text format that are stored on your computer or other devices when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to remember you and your preferences, either for a single visit (“session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (“persistent cookie”). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (“first party cookies”), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (“third party cookies”).
