What's a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file that stores Internet settings. Almost every website uses cookie technology. It is downloaded from your Internet browser the first time you visit a website. The next time you visit this site using the same device, the cookie and the information stored on it will either be sent back to the web page that created it (first party cookie) or to another web page to which it belongs (third party cookie). This allows the Web site to recognize that you have already been browsed with this browser and, in some cases, to vary the content displayed. Some cookies are extremely useful because they can improve the user experience when you return to a site that you have visited several times. For example, if you use the same device and browser as before, cookies will remember your preferences, tell you how to use a page, and more relevantly tailor the offers displayed to your personal interests and needs.
