What are cookies used for?

Cookies enable you to browse directly in your language, for instance, and save you having to log back in each time you visit. In short, they make this website much faster and more pleasant to use. Cookies can also help you be more efficient. Have you ever put an item in a virtual basket at an online store, and found the item still in the basket on returning to the store a few days later? That is an example of how cookies work. Cookies can also be used to make the content of a website or the advertisements it features more relevant to visitors, and adapt the site to each visitor’s personal tastes and needs.
