What is a cookie?
.A cookie is a small text file that a website installs on your device (PC, phone, or other) when you visit it. These files allow the website to “memorize” your actions and preferences, such as the username, chosen language, character size and other display settings for a certain period of time. That’s why when you go through the pages of a website or go back to one you’ve visited you do not have to re-indicate your preferences in principle. The existence of cookies does not affect the operation of your device and its operating system. Cookies can be of two types:
Session Cookies – are temporary and are deleted when you close the browser at the end of your browsing session. The next time you visit this particular site, it will not recognize you and treat you as a completely new visitor because there is nothing in your browser to tell the site that you visited it earlier.
Persistent Cookies – These cookies remain on your hard drive until you delete or expire them automatically after a certain period of time (for which it has been scheduled to last). A persistent cookie allows a website to “memorize” your preferences on subsequent visits, accelerating or enhancing your experience by taking advantage of the available features.
