1. What are Cookies and Local Storage?

Cookies are technologies made up of small pieces of data, stored in text files that are stored on your computer or another device when our website or Brand Sites are loaded in a browser, which allows us to record information when you visit our Website. When a website uses Cookies, it allows users to perform certain functions on the site more easily and efficiently. Cookies are widely used by a website and on our website to remember you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). Cookies ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors and have an expiration date. Local Storage is a property that allows JavaScript sites and apps to save key-value pairs in a web browser with no expiration date. This means the data stored in the browser will persist even after the browser window is closed.  Local Storage has a greater storage capacity. We use both Cookies and Local Storage on our Website and Brand Sites.
