What is a cookie?A cookie is a small text file created in the browser by the site that you have accessed. Cookies are necessary in order for the website to retain information about your visit, for example the language that you prefer and other settings. As such, your next website visit can be easier and the website more useful to you. Cookies play as such an important role. They also help ensure that the advertisements that you see online are more relevant to you and your interests. Much, though not all, of the data that they collect is anonymous, though some of it is designed to detect browsing patterns and approximate geographical location to improve user experience. Without them, using the Internet would be a more annoyance experience.
How long will cookies stay on my device?The length of time a cookie will stay on your computer or mobile device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie.

What is Do Not Track?Do Not Track is a web browser setting that requests that a web application disable its tracking of an individual user. When you choose to turn on the DNT setting in your browser, your browser sends a special signal to websites, analytics companies, ad networks, plugin providers, and other web services you encounter while browsing to stop tracking your activity.Read more & Adjust Settingse.
