What are cookies and what are they used for?
Cookies were created in 1994 by Lou Montulli, an employee of Netscape, as a solution to the problems caused by the fact that websites could not identify computers that were accessing them. Cookies are labels assigned to devices, and one of their important functions is to tell the website whether two requests come from the same device or from two different devices.
Cookies are saved to the hard drive or memory of the visitor's computer. A cookie is a small file that is sent to the browser and saved on your device when you visit a wesite. Cookies allow the site to function correctly and improve its performance, as well as giving information to the site owner for statistical or advertising purposes, mainly to personalise the user's navigation experience by remembering preferences and navigation modes.
Cookies can be linked to the device ID, notifying the website when the user returns. Many sites, including this one, use them. Cookies help the site to be more efficient and to remember preferences and user names, register products and services, and personalise pages.
