modern website to work properly, it needs to collect certain basic information
on its users. To do this a site will create cookies – small text files that are
stored to the user’s computer. These cookies are designed to allow a website to
recognize its users on subsequent visits, or to authorize other designated
websites to recognize these users for a particular purpose.
Cookies do a lot
of different jobs which make your experience of the internet much smoother and
more interactive. For instance, they can be used to remember your preferences
on sites you visit often, to remember your ID and the contents of your shopping
basket, and so help you navigate between pages more efficiently. They also help
ensure that the advertisements that you see online are more relevant to you and
your interests. Some data collected is designed to detect browsing patterns and
approximate geographical location to improve users experience.
