What are cookies?
A cookie is a bit of text that websites can save to your browser when you access the website. They can have many uses, for example, counting how many people have visited a website, targeting advertising, or keeping track of one’s shopping cart at an online store. We use them to improve Contentful as one of the leading Content Management Systems.
Why enable cookie consent?
Cookies provide us with valuable data to help us understand how people use Contentful and how we can improve it for our users. A use case would be to find out where people get stuck while using the website. We would then use this information to update the website's design to make it easier for people to navigate where they would like to go. Without this information, it’s much harder for us to figure out how to improve Contentful and provide more value for you, the user.
Setting your preferences
When visiting the web app for the first time since this change, you’ll be presented with a cookie consent banner. Set your preferences and then click the Save button. Or, if you’d like accept all cookies, click Accept all. We’ll save and respect your preferences.
