In fact, session cookies make it possible to identify the country from which a connection to a website is made and automatically direct the user to the version of that website intended for that country. They also enable users to set up accounts, log in and manage orders and, lastly, make it possible to recognize registered users and automatically give them access to the services dedicated to them.

They can also be used to avoid you being repeatedly offered a service that you refused in the past. These cookies also enable the Website to remember function selections you have made (for example, your user name, language, home country, etc.), thereby avoiding you having to input all that information again each time you visit the Website.
