An error could take place if the web server can't process a request (Error 400), if you have to log in so as to see some content and you have not done so (Error 401), if you aren't able to access some webpage (Error 403) or if a link leads to a file which isn't on the server (Error 404).

This kind of function will help you keep the visitor on the site regardless of the error or the reason for it.
