Okay so duckduckgo is tracking users now?

When i searched on duckduckgo it gave me cookies ans Etag why is duckduckgo doing this? I read there privacy policy and they should not give users cookie in default setting

Cookies and HTTP ETags have legitimate use cases. Cookies are needed to store information on your client (since HTTP doesn’t have a “memory”), and HTTP ETags are used for cache validation so that your client doesn’t load resources that are already on your computer.

Which cookies are set in your web browser? Maybe they store your DDG search preferences locally?
