WHAT ARE COOKIES?
“Cookies” are small software tags that are stored on your computer through the browser (browser), retaining only information related to your preferences, not including, as such, your personal data. These files allow the website to “remember” your actions and preferences for a certain period of time, namely the username, the chosen language, the size of the characters and other display settings. That is why when you browse through the pages of a site or return to a site you have already visited, you do not, in principle, have to re-indicate your preferences when you return to a site.
