Cookies are small bits of record-keeping information, tiny text files, which are automatically generated and stored on your computer by your browser when you visit a certain website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on your each subsequent visit.
There are many functions cookies serve. Namely, they can enable the website to remember your preferences, such as your preferred language.
