Cookies are small files that websites put on your computer's hard drive when you first visit them.
The cookie contains a unique code that allows your browser to be recognised during your visit to the website ("session cookie") or during future visits ("permanent cookie"). Cookies may be placed by the server of the website you are visiting or by partners with whom that website collaborates. A website's server can only read the cookies it has set itself; it has no access to any other information on your computer or mobile device. Cookies are stored on your computer or mobile device in the memory of your browser. The contents of a cookie generally consist of the name of the server that placed the cookie, an expiration date and a unique encryption code.

In short, they make using this website much faster and more pleasant.
