Cookies work behind the scenes to make your experience of using a website smooth and easy. For instance, they detect your language and country so you don’t need to enter them manually. Also, when you click ‘keep me logged in’ that’s saved in the cookie, so you don’t need to worry about the security of your info, like your passwords.

What types of cookies are there?
