1 What is the purpose of a cookie?
2 What is included in a cookie?
A cookie is a simple data collection in the form of a very small text file. Each cookie is unique and consists of the name of the webpage that created it, as well as a unique string of numbers and letters.
The vast majority of websites and apps place cookies on your device’s hard drive (computer, mobile phone, or tablet) while you use them. This is done via your web browser – for example Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Edge, Safari or Mozilla Firefox, etc. A cookie can only be read and retrieved by the website that created it; Websites can never exchange information with each other through cookies.
Some cookies only last for the duration of your visit. Such “session cookies” disappear from your computer or mobile phone as soon as you close your browser. Other cookies remain on your computer or mobile device after you have closed your browser and are stored there for a certain period of time. These “persistent cookies” are activated each time you visit the website from which they were created.
3 What is not included in a cookie?
The following data is NOT included in cookies:
- Personal information – You can not be personally identified by a Cookie.
- Program code – Unlike a computer virus, a cookie is not code, which means it will not be able to harm your device.
4 Are cookies dangerous?
