WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small files made up of a series of letters and numbers that are placed on your computer by a web server. They allow the website owner to differentiate you from other users of that website. Cookies cannot be encrypted, cannot be used to transmit viruses, and cannot allow us to access your hard drive. We cannot read any information from your hard drive even if cookies are stored there.
Cookies usually store your settings for a website, such as your preferred language or address. Later, when you open the same website again, the internet browser sends back the cookies that belong to that page. This allows the page to display information tailored to your needs. Cookies can store a wide range of information, including personal information (such as your name or email). However, this information can only be saved if you enable it – websites cannot access information that you did not give them and cannot access other files on your computer. The default cookie storage and sending activities are not visible to you. However, you can change your browser settings so that you can choose whether to approve or reject cookie requests, delete saved cookies automatically when you close your browser, and so on.
