First Party Cookies

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. They are used to remember your preferences and make the site easier for you to use.

There are two types of cookies: first-party cookies and third-party cookies.

First-party cookies are set by the website you are visiting. They can only be read by that website and are used to store information about your visits, such as your language preference or the contents of your shopping cart.

Third-party cookies are set by a domain other than the one you are visiting. If a website sets a third-party cookie, it may be able to track your behavior across different websites.

Most web browsers allow you to control how cookies are set on your computer. You can usually find these settings in the "Preferences" or "Tools" menu of your browser. If you continue without changing your settings, websites will assume that you are consenting to the use of first and third-party cookies.
