What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files of letters and numbers that are sent from a website and stored in a user’s web browser such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera or Internet Explorer. 

 

All devices with a browser use cookies, whether you access the Internet on a PC, tablet, or smart phone. When you browse the same website in the future, the data stored in the cookie present in the user’s browser can be retrieved by that website.

 

Cookies are ‘passive’ as they contain retrievable information, but do not contain programmes, viruses or malicious software.

 

Types of cookies

A cookie can be classified by its lifespan and the domain to which it belongs.

 

By lifespan, a cookie is either a session cookie, which is erased when the user closes the browser, or a persistent cookie, which remains on the user’s computer/device for a pre-defined period of time.

 

As for the domain to which it belongs, cookies can be classified as either first-party cookies, which are set by the web server of the visited page and share the same domain, or third-party cookies, which are stored by a different domain than the visited page’s domain, for example when the webpage references a file, such as JavaScript, that is located outside its domain.
