Examples of important uses of cookies (which do not require the authentication of a user through an account):
Content and services tailored to user preferences – categories of products and services.

Providing relevant advertising to the user.
Measuring, optimizing and adapting analytics features – such as confirming a certain level of traffic on a website, what type of content is viewed and how a user arrives at a website (eg: via search engines, directly, from other websites etc.). Websites run these analyzes regarding their use in order to improve their services for the benefit of users.
