A cookie is simply a technology for remembering something about you.
Without cookies, a website is like a goldfish that loses its memory every time you visit a new page. As soon as you visit a new page, it forgets who you are.
Now this can be a good and a bad thing. Without a memory, there's a lot of stuff a website can't do. It can’t let you log in, because it forgets who you are. It can’t let you buy anything, because it forgets what you’re buying.
You can turn them off completely, which is a bit like banning all music to prevent another Justin Bieber album. But then many websites simply won’t work.
A better option would be to turn off third party cookies, which will stop most websites from sharing information about you. Some browsers – like Safari – do this automatically.
On a less personal level EuRA's cookies track which pages are visited most often, how people have arrived at them (for example through a particular search engine or website that links to the EuRA site) and which articles attract the most interest.
This allows us to ensure visitors enjoy the best experience and the most relevant information at all times. We promise never to share the information we have gathered from our cookies with third parties or to use it for promotional or commercial reasons. Read about our Privacy and GDPR policies.
