WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are non-malicious background text files containing small amounts of information which are sent to your web browsing device (computer, mobile, tablet etc.) when you visit a website for the first time. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognizes that Cookie.
Through Cookies, the originating website can optimize user interaction by remembering your preferences, improving user experience, analyzing website performance as well as tailoring the adverts you see to recommend those most relevant to you. This one-time non-user initiated action does not pose any harm to the user’s security or personal privacy.
