- What is a cookie? Let us explain
Every time you visit a website, your browser saves a small file on the device you use. These files are called cookies.
Their purpose is to keep the website active and to allow the website managers to monitor online activity.
There are two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. The former are stored permanently, while the latter expire every time the browser is closed.
Cookies may also be technical or third-party; the former come directly from the website you have visited, while the latter come from other websites.

These work to show you contents that may be of interest to you, from websites other than the one you are visiting.

To this end, their function is based on your browsing history, and they suggest to you products similar to those you have been looking at. These cookies connect to the browser you used to visit our website.
