1 minute reading time

Functional cookies are small pieces of data that are stored on a user’s device and used to enhance the functionality of a website.

These cookies are typically set by the website owner and may be used to store preferences, such as language or font size, or to keep track of items in a shopping cart.

Functional cookies may also be used to provide services, such as video playback or social media integration.

These cookies are typically not used to track or target advertising, but rather to improve the user experience and functionality of the website.

You can check out what kind of cookies a website places by going to the developer tools in your browser. Check it out!
