Definition of Functional Cookies

Functional cookies are small files that are stored on a user's computer by websites to enable certain functions and enhance the user experience.

These cookies remember user preferences, such as language choices and the contents of a shopping cart for online stores.

They can also be used to identify users when they log into a website, so their personal data is securely retrieved each time they visit.

Functional cookies are non-intrusive and generally do not contain any sensitive information.
