What is a cookie
A cookie is a small piece of data that a website sends to a user's computer.
What are cookies used for?
Web pages have no memory. A user who browses from one page to another within a website is not recognised as the same user in each of the pages. Cookies allow the website to recognise a user's browser. Cookies are, therefore, used mainly to remember the choices of users (e.g. the language spoken) and to recognise recurring visitors to a website.
Are cookies all alike
No, there are various types of cookie, used according to need. Cookies differ according to function, duration and origin. When you visit a website, you may receive cookies both from the owner of the site you visit (known as first-party cookies), and those controlled by other organisations (known as third-party cookies) for which the owner of the site acts as technical intermediary in relations with the end user.
