Not the snacks (we have a different policy for those…)
What are cookies?
Think of it this way, say you are a cookie monster, and every time you visit a website, that website gives you a cookie to snack on. And, just like actual cookies, they come in different flavors and sizes. Some of them are little snack-sized cookies that disappear once you close your browser (also called session cookies), and some of them are a bit larger and stick around for a while (also known as persistent cookies).
They make our browsing experience much easier and more enjoyable. Persistent cookies, for example, help remember things like your log-in details or your language settings, and session cookies help you use the website by keeping track of what you’re doing, like a little helper that follows you around.
There is also a third type of cookie called a third-party cookie. These you can think of as cookies offered to you by an unknown cookie monster. Think of yourself as a friendly cookie monster and a scary unknown monster offers you a cookie. Now there could be nothing wrong with that cookie, but you can’t know for sure. So we’re sure you’d be extra careful before accepting one. The same goes for third-party cookies, so we’re happy to inform you that we don’t use third-party cookies. We do, however, use persistent and session cookies to make sure your user experience is as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
