An error may take place when the server cannot process a request (Error 400), if you need to log in so as to see some content and you haven't done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access some page (Error 403) or when a link leads to a file which isn't on the website hosting server (Error 404).

This sort of function shall help you keep the visitor on the site whatever the error or the reason for it.
