2. What are cookies?
“Cookies” are small pieces of data stored within your browser when you interact with a website. These data files allow the site to recall important information about your visit and help improve your experience.
They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in.
The vast majority of web browsers accept cookies. However, you do have the ability to decline cookies by modifying the settings on your browser. If you use several browsers, remember to delete cookies in all of them.
Please note, if you do this you may lose some of the functionality of this Platform.
