Most sites use these cookies to remember your device and other information — like what’s in your shopping cart or your login information.

Cookies aren’t technically tracking you, instead, when a cookie is created it assigns your device a unique tracking number. This number can be matched up across websites or sessions and piece together your travels across the web.
