What cookies are and what are they used for?
Cookies are a small piece of data sent from a web server and stored on the user’s computer. The web client (usually a web browser), every time when you try to open a page of the website, sends this piece of data to a web server in the form of the HTTP request. Cookies are usually used to store data on the user’s side for:
- Authentication of the user;
- Store personal preferences and user preferences;
- Tracking session state[en] user access;
- Statistics about users.
In other words, this helps GkFeed identify that it is you who visited our website (as cookies uniquely identify your browser) and collects all statistical information.
