One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise Surrey Scouts pages, or register with Surrey Scouts site or services, a cookie helps Surrey Scouts to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Surrey Scouts Website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Surrey Scouts features that you customised.
