WHAT IS A COOKIE?
A cookie is a small fragment of text that websites send to the browser and that is stored in the user’s terminal, which can be a personal computer, a mobile phone, a tablet, etc. These files allow the website to remember information about your visit, such as language and preferred options, which may make your next visit easier and more useful by customising the site’s content. Cookies play a very important role in improving the web experience.
These cookies do not contain any specific personal information, and most of them are deleted from your hard drive at the end of your browser session – so-called “session cookies”. Most browsers accept cookies as standard and, regardless of the browser, allow or prevent temporary or stored cookies in the security settings.
