What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file that may be stored on your computer or mobile device that contains data related to a website you visit. It may allow a website to “remember” your actions or preferences over a period of time, or it may contain data related to the function or delivery of the site and which are deleted the moment you move away from the website. These are known as “persistent” and “session” Cookies. Cookies can be set by the owner of the website or in some cases by third party services the website owner allows to present other information, run content or provide other functionality such as analytics. Some Cookies are essential to make the website work properly and look as it should – others are not.
