services you may request without these essential cookies
(shopping cart fulfillment, e-billing, etc.).

agreements assent, etc.), detect if a service has already been
offered, provide information to allow
access to an optional service (such as the offer of a live chat
session), fulfil a user request (Such as submitting a comment).

authentication for when
you wish to automatically log in.
