Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies:

 

What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file created in the browser by the site that you have accessed. Cookies are necessary in order for the website to retain information about your visit, for example the language that you prefer and other settings.

They also help ensure that the advertisements that you see online are more relevant to you and your interests. Much, though not all, of the data that they collect is anonymous, though some of it is designed to detect browsing patterns and approximate geographical location to improve user experience. Without them, using the Internet would be a more annoyance experience.
