This technology includes both so-called “sessionStorage”, which remains stored until the browser tab is closed, and “localStorage”, which is stored in the browser’s cache until the cache is cleared by the user. Among other things, the localStorage technology makes it possible to recognise a user and their settings when they call up our website.
