WHAT IS A COOKIE?
A cookie is information stored on a user’s computer by a website he has visited. Cookies usually store user settings, web page settings, such as preferred language or address. Later, when the user reopens the same website, the internet browser sends back the cookies that belong to that page. This allows to display information tailored to the needs of each individual user.
Cookies can store a wide range of information including personal information (such as a user’s name or email address). However, this information can only be stored if the user allows it – websites cannot access information for which the user has not given permission and cannot access other files on the user’s computer. The default activities for saving and sending cookies to users are not visible. However, the user can change his Internet browser settings so that he can choose whether to approve or reject requests to save cookies by deleting saved cookies automatically when closing the Internet browser and the like.
Types of cookies
Persistent or saved cookies remain on your computer after you close your Internet browser program. With them, Internet sites store information, such as login and password, language settings, or cookie settings, so you don’t have to re-enter them each time you visit. Persistent cookies can stay on your computer or mobile device for days, months, even years.
Temporary cookies or session cookies are removed from your computer when you close your Internet browser. They are used by Internet sites to store temporary data, such as the last few pages you open on the Internet site you are visiting or items in the shopping cart if you are on an Internet site that specializes in Internet sales.
