They are intended to make a website easier to use. They may store details such as your personal settings or what you have in a shopping cart, so you don't need to enter the information again.

If you are concerned about third party cookies, such as those generated by advertising platforms, the Your Online Choices site allows you to control and turn off third-party cookies.
The companies providing these advertising platforms are represented by a trade body called Network Advertising Initiative – their site provides detailed information about such companies. They have also provided a website you can use to control third-party online advertising.
Please note that these websites mention many more third-party advertising and tracking services than ActionAid uses.
