Making browsing more convenient
For instance, we can use your IP-address (which is your unique license plate online) to detect your country and language you might prefer. This is possible because the IP-address reveals which country you are connecting from. If you chose another language manually, we use a cookie to store that preference. This can be relevant for instance if you travel abroad, and access through an IP-address in a country with a language other than the one you prefer.
For certain subdomains like addons.opera.com or forums.opera.com or auth.opera.com we use an authorization cookie. This cookie is set after you successfully authenticate at the website, for instance by username and password. The purpose of this cookie is to make authentication more convenient for you.
