What is a cookie?
A cookie is simply a small text file that is sent from a website to your computer (or mobile device) when you visit certain web pages. It allows the website to “remember” your actions or preferences over time. Most browsers support cookies, but users can set their browsers to decline them and can delete them whenever they like.
A cookie cannot be used to identify you personally.
How do cookies work?
The first time you visit a website, a cookie is usually downloaded to your computer. The next time you visit, your computer checks to see if it has a cookie for that site, and if it does, it sends the information back to the website.
The website then ‘knows’ that you have visited before, and in some cases can tailor its content to take account of that fact.
What are the different types of cookies?
