What is a cookie?

A cookie is a simple text file stored on your computer or mobile device by the server of a website. That server will subsequently be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Cookies are managed by your browser. Each cookie is unique and contains some anonymous information such as a unique identifier, site name, digits and letters. It allows a website to remember your browsing preferences.

Most websites that you visit will use cookies in order to improve your user experience. They enable websites to remember you, either for the duration of your visit (using a session cookie) or for repeat visits (using a persistent cookie).

Cookies can have a host of different functions. They let you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences and generally improving your experience of a website. Cookies make the interaction between you and the website faster and easier. If a website does not use cookies, it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site. For example, when you close a menu and move to another page, it will not remember that you have closed the menu on the previous page, and it will display the next page with that page’s menu open.

Some websites will also use cookies to enable them to target their advertising or marketing messages based, for example, on your location and / or browsing habits.

Cookies may be set by the website which you are visiting (first party cookies) or they may be set by other websites which run content on the page you are viewing (third party cookies).

For example, to measure its audience a website might use a third-party analytics company, which will set its own cookie to perform that service. The website you are visiting may also have embedded content, e.g. YouTube videos or Flickr slideshows. Those sites may also set their own cookies.

More significantly, a website might use a third-party advertising network to deliver targeted advertising.
