What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that some platforms, such as websites, may install on your computer, smartphone or television. Their purposes may be very diverse: to store your browsing preferences, to collect statistical information, to enable certain technical functions, etc. Cookies are sometimes used to store basic information about the user’s browsing habits to the point of being able to recognise them.
Why are they important?
Cookies are helpful for several reasons. From a technical point of view, they allow websites to function more easily and in a way that suits your preferences, such as saving your language or the currency of your country. They also help website managers to improve the services they offer, thanks to the statistical information they collect through them. Finally, they help to make the advertising we show you more efficient, thanks to which we can provide you with services free of charge.
