What happens if you accept cookies on a website?

If you accept cookies on a website, you’re allowing the website to store information about you. This can be used for a number of purposes, including keeping track of your preferences and interests.

When you visit a site that uses cookies, your browser will send information to the server hosting the site. The server will then create an entry in its database with information about you and your activity on the site. This can include things like your IP address and device information such as operating system, model, etc. The server sends a cookie with a unique ID to identify you, which is then stored on your browser.

One of the main reasons websites use cookies is to track how many people visit their sites and what content they view. This helps them to optimize their pages for better engagement. Cookies also enable websites to remember things like passwords so users don’t have to type them in every time they visit.
