What are cookies?
Cookies are small files that are downloaded to your device when you visit a website or mobile application. The cookie then sends information back to the website operator or to another website operator that recognizes that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognize a user’s device. Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience.
We also use other tracking technologies called web beacons, embedded scripts, and flash cookies. Sometimes these technologies are also called cookies, but they are not quite the same.
