What is a cookie?
A cookie is a very simple text file that gets downloaded onto your PC/device when you visit a website. They generally contain two bits of information: a site name and a unique user ID. Once the cookie is on your computer, the site "knows" that you have been there before and can then use that knowledge to tailor the experience that you have. The vast majority of commercial websites -- be they major online publishers, banks or ecommerce sites -- will use them.
What are cookies used for?
Cookies are used for many different functions including auto-filling forms, counting visitors, storing shopping basket items, personalising content, targeting advertising, recording user preferences and for authentication and security.
This allows the website to be customized to your preferences. For example, to remember your permission to place cookies on PC/device. As a result, you do not always have to repeat your preferences, saving you time and making it easier to navigate through the webshop. Permanent cookies can be removed from your browser settings.
Using a session cookie, we can see which sections of the website you viewed with this visit. We can therefore customize the web shop as much as possible to the visitor's browsing behavior. These cookies will be automatically deleted once you close your browser.
