A. What are Cookies?
In order to make our Website easier to use and navigate, we sometimes place small data files on your computer or mobile device. These are known as cookies. They enable our Website to store a user’s configuration and preferences (e.g. login credentials, language preference, font size, display settings, etc.) over a certain period, so you do not have to keep re-entering information whenever you revisit our Website or browse between pages.
Cookies serve various purposes, like allowing you to navigate efficiently between pages, storing your individual preferences, remembering your shopping cart and generally improving your experience on our Website. Furthermore, cookies make your interaction with our Website easier and faster. Without their use, our Website would consider you a new visitor every time you move to another page (for example, when you are logged in and move to another page, it would not recognize you and you would have to re-enter your login details).
