What are cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser.

They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as ‘first party cookies), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (‘third party cookies’).
