What is a Cookie?
Our website uses cookie technology. A cookie is a piece of information in the form of a very small text file stored on your hard drive. It is generated by a web page server when you visit a website.
The information the cookie contains is set by the server and it can be used by that server whenever the user visits the website. A cookie can be thought of as an Internet user’s identification card, which tells a website when the user has returned.
What is the purpose of a Cookie?
A cookie is used to make the browsing experience more efficient and enjoyable by saving your personal preferences for your return visit – for example, the language version of a website. Without cookies, it would be very difficult for a website to allow a visitor to fill up a shopping cart or to remember the user’s preferences or registration details for a future visit.
Websites often use it for the purposes of collecting demographic information about their users.
Cookies enable websites to monitor their users’ web surfing habits and profile them for marketing purposes (for example, to find out which products/services they are interested in and send them targeted advertisements).
