Cookies are the small pieces of data that websites send to your browser in order to make web browsing easier and quicker for you.
Cookies are also how my kids have started calling biscuits lately, I guess we can thank American TV for that! All we know is those don't last long, kinda like website cookies. Very confusing...
molten wonky have always used cookies to make our site work as efficiently as possible for our customers. We also use them to get an idea of how many visits our site is getting - which, for an online business, is helping us make improvements and stuff like that.
What is a cookie?
Like we said, cookies are small pieces of data that websites store in your browser in order to remember your personal settings – eg: stuff like are you logged in, or which items you just added to your shopping basket. They're mostly used to speed up your browsing experience.
Without them, you would probably get really bored of filling in the same information repeatedly or waiting for a page to reload.
I think it's called 'progress' remember 56K modems and dial up browsing!
For instance, how you found our site, how many times you've visited, what pages you looked at and how long you spent browsing.
Again, helpful for us in terms of the usability of our website and our navigation design etc.
