Why do we need them?
Cookies are fundamental to providing user-friendly online services. The most common e-commerce functions (for example, adding products to your basket, making a payment, entering your order’s delivery address) would not be possible without cookies. Cookies make the interaction between the web user and the website faster and easier. They help the website to remember the individual’s preferences and experience, saving time and making browsing more efficient and enjoyable.
Cookies are used by most websites as they provide a convenient way to keep content fresh and relevant, in line with the interests and preferences of web users. Website operators can assess the effectiveness of the design of their websites, as well as the relevance of the type and number of advertisements they offer to users on their websites, based on website traffic statistics, which are also made possible by cookies.
