Like most things, understanding how these can benefit us or add risk is key to managing them well...
The small files with non-identifiable preferences that save you steps, time, or delay are commonly called 'cookies'.
You can learn more about them in Wikipedia.
These are how WE add functionality, persalisation, and performance while you are on our website. These 'expire' when you log out, opt out, or manually clear them.
These are how OTHERS (like PayPal, Google, Apple, Samsubg, etc.) add value to your experience with their hardware, operating systems, or secured services.
We make sure that you know what is in use and have easy control over them.
