For example, if you personalize the STUCO web pages, or register with the STUCO website, a cookie helps the STUCO website to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as home addresses, billing addresses, and so on. When you return to the same STUCO website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use what you customized.
