Cookies are files created by websites that you visit. They make your online experience easier by saving browsing information. With cookies, sites can keep you signed in, remember your site preferences and give you locally relevant content.

There are two types of cookies:

  • First-party cookies are created by the site you visit. The site is shown in the address bar.

  • Third-party cookies are created by other sites. These sites own some of the content, like ads or images, that you see on the web page you visit.

Sometimes you might need to clear your cookies if you notice buffering on the site. Clearing them fixes certain problems, like loading or formatting issues on sites. Please check this article on 'How to clear cache & cookies'
