What is a cookie?
Pieces of information transferred to your computer’s hard disk from a website are known as “cookies”.
They are not computer programs, just small information files which allow websites to store and access information about a user’s browsing patterns.
There are different types of cookies: temporary cookies (or session cookies) are erased when the browser closes; persistent cookies are not erased but stay until they are actively erased or they expire (which is dependent on how long the website has programmed the cookie to last).
