What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small piece of data that a website stores on your device when you visit. It typically contains information about the website itself, a unique identifier that allows the site to recognize your web browser when you return, additional data that serves the cookie's purpose, and the lifespan of the cookie itself.
Cookies are used to enable certain features (e.g., logging in), track site usage (e.g., analytics), store your user settings (e.g., time zone, notification preferences), and to personalize your content (e.g., advertising, language).
Cookies set by the website you are visiting are usually referred to as first-party cookies. They typically only track your activity on that particular site.
Cookies set by other sites and companies (i.e., third parties) are called third-party cookies. They can be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service.

Performance cookies track how you use a website during your visit. Typically, this information is anonymous and aggregated, with information tracked across all site users. They help companies understand visitor usage patterns, identify and diagnose problems or errors their users may encounter, and make better strategic decisions in improving their audience's overall website experience. These cookies may be set by the website you're visiting (first party) or by third-party services. They do not collect personal information about you.

Targeting/advertising cookies help determine what promotional content is most relevant and appropriate to you and your interests. Websites may use them to deliver targeted advertising or limit the number of times you see an advertisement. This helps companies improve the effectiveness of their campaigns and the quality of content presented to you. These cookies may be set by the website you're visiting (first party) or by third-party services. Targeting/advertising cookies set by third parties may be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service.
