Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.Information is stored in the cookie that is created in connection with the specific device you are using. However, this does not mean that we receive direct information regarding your identity.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page.

When you return to the same CECOC Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the CECOC features that you customized.
