What are cookies and why does a website need them?
A cookie is a small text file that is downloaded to a user’s computer when they visit a website and usually contains:
- the name of the server from which the cookie was sent;
- the lifetime of the cookie;
- value – usually a randomly generated unique number.
The cookie itself does not contain or collect information. However, if it is read by a server in conjunction with a web browser, this can help the website provide a more user-friendly service – for example, by remembering a user’s previous purchases or account details. Only the server that sent the cookie can read and use the cookie.
On a trusted website, cookies can thus enrich the experience. However, cookies may also be used in ways that interfere with an individual’s privacy. Cookies can be stored for varying lengths of time, just for the duration of a browsing session or for much longer.
