2. What is a Cookie?

Today, cookies are used by almost all websites and are in many cases necessary to provide services on the website.

 

A cookie is a small text file stored on the user’s IT equipment (such as a PC, tablet, smartphone, etc.) allowing the website to recognise the equipment. Cookies may, for instance, be used for the purpose of preparing statistics of the users’ website use and improving the website’s content. A cookie is a passive file, which means it cannot collect information from your computer or spread computer virus or other malware. Some cookies are placed by websites other than the one currently visited by you (so-called third party cookies). The cookies may be of a general nature, but they may also hold analytical tools or embedded comment fields. This means that cookies from parties other than the one owning the website are stored on your IT equipment.

 

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 of time (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.
