Cookies can help to analyse web traffic, to identify a user or retain login information when you are revisiting a website and therefore can be very useful. Cookies can respond to previously used web applications, enabling the web application to mould its operations to your needs, likes or dislikes by tracking the information about your preferences.

This information is only used to gather information for statistical analysis, after which the data is removed from the system.
