The use of cookie files
What is the purpose of cookies?
What does a cookie contain?
A cookie is a simple piece of information in the form of a very small text file. Each cookie is unique and includes the name of the site that created it, and a one-of-a-kind sequence of numbers and letters.
The vast majority of websites and applications, when you use them, place cookies on the hard drive of your device (computer, mobile phone or tablet). They do this through your browser – for example, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, or Firefox. Only the site that created the cookie can read and use the cookie; sites cannot share information through cookies.
Some cookies only exist while you are on the site. These session cookies disappear from your computer or mobile device as soon as you close your browser. Other cookies remain on your computer or mobile device after you close your browser and are stored for a specified period of time. These “persistent cookies” are activated each time you visit the website that created them.
What is not in the cookie?
Cookies do not contain:
Personal information – you cannot be identified by a cookie;
Software code – unlike a computer virus, a cookie does not contain code, which means that it is not capable of harming your device.
