What are cookies?
For almost any modern website to work properly, it needs to collect certain basic information on its users. To do this, a site will create files known as cookies on its users’ computers. A cookie is a small text file that enables the website to remember the pages you have visited along with your preferences (e.g. user name, language, font size, etc.) so you don't need to fill these in again every time you visit the site. In detail, cookies are text strings of small size sent from a server to the user's browser and then sent back to the server (without change) every time the user accesses the same portion of the same web domain. Cookies enable better service and use of the website, which is also more tailored to your preferences. They also help ensure that the advertisements that you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
Cookies may be stored permanently on the computer or mobile device of the user or have a variable duration (persistent cookies), but may also disappear when the user closes the browser (session cookies). Cookies can be installed by the website being visited (first part cookies) or can be installed by other websites (third part cookies).
