What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are automatically placed on your Device when you visit almost any website. They are stored by your internet browser and contain basic information about your internet use.

They can also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video. Some customization cookies are essential if you want to use certain features of the site. These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for example, which pages are most visited, if you get error messages from web pages.
