They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors and perform essential functions such as remembering preferred settings for the site. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as “first party cookies”), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide analytics services on the website (“third party cookies”).
