What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file which is stored on your computer or mobile device while visiting a website and from which it is retrieved during every new visit. The purpose of these files is to help the website recognise the browser of users who have already visited that website before. A cookie is a piece of data stored on your computer by the website you visited. Cookies usually save your settings, such as your preferred language or address. When you later open the same website again, your web browser sends back the cookies belonging to that website. This allows the website to display information customised according to the user’s needs.
Cookies can store a wide range of information, including personal information (such as your e-mail address). However, this information can be stored only if you enable it - websites cannot gain access to information you have not provided and cannot access other files on your computer. The default storing and sending activities of cookies are not visible to you. Still, you can change your web browser settings so that you can choose whether to accept or deny requests for storing cookies, automatically delete stored cookies when you close the browser and more.
