They also allow to identify errors displayed on some subpages. Cookies used to record the so-called “session state” help to improve the quality of the services and increase the comfort of browsing;
- maintaining session status – if a client logs in to his panel, the cookies sustain the session. This means that after switching to another subpage, you do not have to re-enter your login and password; this contributes to the comfort of using the website;
