Most sites use these cookies to remember your device and other information — like what’s in your shopping cart or your login information. Cookies can also be used to track your device across websites, which is how you keep seeing ads for that pair of shoes you looked at online a couple of months ago. 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.
