What is a cookie?

 

A cookie is a data text file which a website may attach to your web browser on your PC or mobile when you first visit a website. Once a cookie has been added to your browser it will then recognise you (if using the same device) when you re-visit that same website in the future. There are four types of cookies each with differing levels of tracking ability. Not all websites will use all types of cookies. Many websites use cookies just as a means to track user activity on their sites.

What’s in a cookie?

 

A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. It allows a website to remember things like your preferences or what’s in your shopping basket.
