What do Cookies do?

Cookies do lots of different jobs, most of which are highly beneficial to the user. A Cookie helps you to navigate between pages efficiently; they store your preferences, remembering what it is you like. Cookies really help to improve your website experience and so do have a benefit for the user. One really important feature of a Cookie is that they remember you and so if there are websites you regularly visit, when you login the website remembers you and so as you move between pages it will keep you logged in. If the website doesn’t remember you, then you might have difficulty keeping logged in as you move from page to page.

Cookies are also really useful for website owners and can be used to help with their marketing and advertising. Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting, but they can also be set by a third party website who may be running content on the page you are visiting.
