What Are Cookies?
A cookie comprises a file bearing an identifier (a strand of alphabetic character* and numerals) that is stationed by a web server to a web browser and is stacked away by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stashed away by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiration date, unless erased by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed. Cookies do not normally contain any information that personally describes a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies. Cookies can be applied by web servers to distinguish and track users as they navigate different pages on a website and identify users returning to a website.
