What are cookie files and why we use them
A Cookie file is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in a user's web browser while a user is browsing a website.
Purposes of storage and gaining access to cookies:
- Website personalisation (for example chosen site language)
- Saving data of user’s decisions (for example remembering login during the next visit)
- Adjusting adverts that are display on the website
- Creating website’s visits statistics
Due to vast number of technological solutions it is not possible to publish clear guidelines how to set the conditions of storage and gaining access to cookies using settings of all available devices and software installed on them. However, in most cases, select "Tools" or "Settings" and there find the section that corresponds to the configuration settings for cookies or for the management of privacy. Detailed information is usually provided by the manufacturer of the device or browser in a manual or on their website.
