COOKIES

Cookies are lines of text that act as computer markers sent from a server (in this case, the Website/App) to the user's device (generally, to the Internet browser) when the user accesses a certain page of a website; a cookie can also be installed from websites other than those being visited by the user (“third party cookies”), it is stored automatically by the user's browser and retransmitted to the server that generated it each time the user accesses the same Internet page. In this way, for example, cookies allow and/or facilitate access to certain Internet pages to improve user browsing (they enable the storage of the pages visited and other specific information, such as the most frequently visited pages, connection errors, etc.), or they allow profiling. Therefore, for easier and complete use of a website, users should configure their browser to accept these cookies.
Frequently, browsers are set to automatically accept cookies. However, users can modify the preset configuration so that cookies are disabled or deleted (each time or permanently). But, as a result, the optimal use of certain areas of the website could be compromised. It is also possible to verify the methods and types of cookies stored on your browser by modifying the cookie settings of the browser.
