Opt Out cookies vs tracking cookies - explained
To sum up, those cookies that you're seeing? They're designed to protect your privacy. They're a special type of cookie called an opt-out cookie. If you delete them, you delete their protective qualities.

There are both good and bad cookies, and the ones that we add to your browser are the good kind.

But while regular cookies tell Web sites information about your online behavior, opt-out cookies tell advertising companies that you *don't want* to receive targeted advertising.
