What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file which is stored on the user's IT equipment (such as a PC, tablet, smartphone, etc.) allowing the website to recognize the equipment. A cookie is a passive file and cannot collect information from the user's computer or spread computer virus or other harmful programs.
The main purpose of cookies is to be used to improve user experience on a website, application or service. The cookie will help recognize your device and will "remember" your actions or preferences over time. Web beacons or other similar files can also do the same thing. Typical examples of a cookie: It remembers i) if you are logged on or not ii) user settings on website. It prepares statistics on your visit to a website.
Some cookies are created temporarily and expire at the end of the user session when the browser is closed (session cookies). Other cookies are stored on the user's IT equipment for a longer period (persistent cookies). When the user revisits a website, new session cookies will be placed in the temporary memory, whereas a persistent cookie will be renewed.
