A cookie is a small data file that websites place on your computer’s browser. This allows the site to identify you on subsequent visits and store specific details about you, such as visited pages, menu selections, entered data, and the date and time of your visit.
Cookies mainly fall into two categories:
• Session Cookies: These are temporary and vanish once you close your browser. They help the site track your activities during a single session, like remembering items in a shopping cart.
• Persistent Cookies: Unlike session cookies, these remain on your device between sessions until they expire or are deleted. They help sites remember you and your preferences upon return.
Besides these, other cookies might be set by the site you’re visiting, like our website, to provide data to us or third parties.
• Essential Cookies: Vital for our Website’s functionality, like logging into secure sections, using a shopping cart, or e-billing.
• Performance Cookies: These help us understand visitor patterns, such as how users navigate our site, aiding us in enhancing user experience.
• User Preference Cookies: These remember you upon return, allowing us to customize content, greet you, and recall your settings.
• Advertising Cookies: These track your website activities, like visited pages and clicked links, helping us tailor ads to your interests. This data might be shared with third parties.
By default, most browsers accept cookies. However, you can modify settings to decline them or get notifications when a site wants to place a cookie. Resources like your browser’s “Help” section or www.allaboutcookies.org can guide you. Disabling cookies might limit the Website’s functionality or prevent access altogether.
