What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small data file, which the internet browser places on your device. It is what you could call “a identification card” in other words, the cookie’s job is to notify the site that the user has  returned. By remembering browser settings, login and system information the user is presented with a service minded and optimized website.

Why do we use cookies?

We use cookies to remember your choices:
