What are cookies
A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent from a website and stored on your computer or mobile device while you’re browsing. Cookies are widely used by websites in order to help them work better and more efficiently, as well as to provide analytical information.
Cookies can be set by:
- The website owner – those are called “first party cookies”.
- Parties other than the website owner – called “third party cookies”. This sort of cookie typically appears when web pages include content from external services such as analytics, usage-tracking and advertisements. This opens up the potential for tracking the user’s browsing history, and is often used to optimize the user’s experience by, for example, serving them relevant advertisements.
We use first party as well as third party cookies for different purposes. Some of the cookies are required for technical reasons and for our website to operate correctly. Others, mostly third party cookies, enable us to track and target the interests of our visitors, as we strive to enhance the experience on our website and improve the functionality of the services we provide to you. Cookies also enable us to tailor the content and the information that we may send or display to you as you interact with our website. Third parties also serve cookies through our website for advertising personalization, analytics and other purposes.
