Cookies are small data files that are transferred from a web server to your web browser and your computer when you visit a website. If your web browser accepts this information, the cookie will be stored in the web browser, on the hard disk or in memory of your computer and is active until the specific expiration date. When a cookie reaches the expiration date, it is automatically deleted from the appropriate directory by the browser.

This can, for example, be information that was gathered at the first visit of the website. When you visit the website for the second time, the information does not need to be collected again. This therefore leads to more efficient and effective use of the website by the user.
