For example, if you personalize the IATDP web pages, or register with the IATDP website, a cookie helps the IATDP 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 IATDP website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use that you customized.
