1. What is a cookie?
A cookie is a collection of data in an industry standard that a webpage transfers to your computer temporarily to allow content to be customized to the user. To do this, cookies collect information about your online behavior.
A cookie is a small file that contains a text made up of a string of letters and numbers (often encoded) that uniquely identifies your computer, the mobile terminal or other equipment of a user accessing the Internet but may also contain other information. A cookie consists of two parts: the name and content or the value of the cookie. Moreover, the duration of a cookie is determined.
A cookie is a file that is placed / downloaded on the device you are using when you access a website by requesting the web server to a browser (eg Internet Explorer, Chrome) that allows the use of site functionalities
A cookie is completely “passive” (it does not contain software, viruses – cookies use plain text formats, they are not made up of pieces of code so they cannot be executed and cannot auto-run, they cannot duplicate or replicate on other networks to run or replicate again – or spyware and cannot access information on the user’s hard drive), allowing only the gathering of user behaviour information (basically which websites visit and When).
In other words, the cookie can be seen as an Internet User ID card that announces the website every time the user returns to that website.
