WHAT ARE COOKIES
Cookies are small files containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer when you visit a website. Cookies may store user preferences and other information—within your current browsing session, across multiple sessions when you return to the site, or both. Cookies also enable certain site functionality, such as login to WattTime’s API and Device UI.
Cookies set by the website owner (i.e., WattTime) are called “first-party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner (e.g., Google Analytics) are called “third-party cookies”. Third-party cookies enable third-party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g., analytics, social media integration, content from third-party sites).
