Why are cookies used?

Thirdly, social media cookies are used to enable the integration of social media & your data with the platform in question into the website, so that you can immediately like or share a page without having to reauthenticate your profile.

A fourth important use of cookies is to enable online advertising, which may be personalized to show ads that are more relevant and interesting to you. This is done by (targeted) advertising cookies.
