Cookies performs many different functions, like allowing you to navigate through pages efficiently, storing your preferences, and generally improving your experience of the website. Cookies make the interaction between you and the website faster and easier. If a website does not use cookies, it will “think” you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site – for example, when you enter your login details and move to another page it will not recognize you and it won’t be able to keep you logged in.

Some websites will also use cookies to enable them to target their advertising or marketing messages based for example, on your location and/or browsing habits. Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (‘first party cookies’) or they may be set by other websites who run content on the page you are viewing (‘third-party cookies’).
