What are cookies and other tracking Technologies?
Cookies are small text files (pieces of information) that are automatically placed on your device such as computer, tablet or smartphone when you visit almost any website. Internet cookies are common and do not harm your system – they just store or gather site information. Cookies are stored by your Internet browser. These Cookies contain basic information about your Internet use, but they do not usually identify you personally. They allow the server to recognise you when you revisit, so the server can recognize your computer or mobile device and personalize as well as improve your site experience. The other tracking technologies work similarly to cookies.
