What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that a web system installs on your computer or mobile device when you visit it. These files allow the website to “remember” your actions and preferences for a certain period of time, in particular your username, chosen language, character size and other display settings, which is why when you scroll through the pages of a site or return to a site you have already visited, you do not in principle have to indicate your preferences again.
