It allows the website to recognise that user’s device and store some information about the user’s preferences or past actions. Functions usually performed by a cookie can be achieved by other means, a similar technology. The same rules also apply if you use any other type of technology to store or gain access to information on someone’s device, for example, using certain characteristics to identify devices so that visits to a website can be analysed.
