WHAT IS A COOKIE
Cookies are often essential for websites that have large databases, require registration or user accounts, provide opportunities to customize the view, etc.
Cookies usually contain little information such as the internet address of the website that created them, their validity and their number. Due to the small amount of information they contain, cookies cannot normally be used to reveal your identity or personal information.
WHAT KINDS OF COOKIES ARE THERE AND WHAT ARE THEY USED FOR?
They are used, for example, in e-commerce websites so that consumers are free to continue browsing without losing the products they have placed in the bag. Session cookies also help to improve the loading time of the site. They are deleted when you close your browser.
These cookies are necessary for the proper functioning of the website system (for example, between your device and the server).
They do not lose their validity when the browser is closed. Their validity period may vary but is usually no longer than 6 months. They are used to store, for example, your access data so that you do not have to enter it every time. They can also be used to personalise and store visitor preferences, such as a selected language or currency.
Cookies from external service providers
The origin of cookies usually corresponds to the name (domain) of the website on which they are located. This does not apply to cookies from external service providers. These cookies are created by the providers themselves, who can be advertisers, for example. These cookies collect information about your habits and interests on the Internet and can track you through various websites. Through them, it is possible to determine which pages you visit, in what sequence, and how long you stay on them. They are most often used to analyse the visits and interests of the users on a given topic.
HOW TO DISABLE COOKIES DIRECTLY FROM THE BROWSER?
