WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Cookies are small text files, created by the website visited, that contain data. They are stored on the user’s device to give the user access to various functions.

Cookies were created to overcome a limitation in web technology. Web pages are 'stateless' - which means that they have no memory and cannot easily pass information between each other. So, cookies provide a kind of memory for web pages.

Cookies allow a website to recognize a user’s device. They also allow the user to navigate effectively between pages, save preferences and get a generally improved experience. They can also be used to tailor marketing based on how various websites were browsed by the user.
