A. What are cookies?

It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don't have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another (these cookies are called first-party cookies).
During web surfing on a site, you can receive on your device also cookies from other websites or servers (called third-party cookies). This happens because on the website you are visiting there can be some elements (images, maps, sounds, videos, links to other websites...) which are hosted on a different web server than the one on which the page you are visiting is hosted. In other words: this cookies are controlled by a website which is not the one you are currently visiting.

You will have to log back in (if login is required) or select your preferences/themes again if the site uses these features. A new session cookie will be generated, which will store your browsing information and will be active until you leave the site and close your browser.
