What is a cookie?
A “cookie” is a small amount of text that is stored on your browser (e.g., Google Chrome or Apple Safari) when browsing most websites.
What a cookie is NOT
It’s not a virus, a Trojan, a worm, spam, spyware, or a pop-up window opener.
What information does a cookie store?
Cookies do not usually store sensitive information about you, such as credit card or bank details, photographs, personal information, etc. The data they do store is of a technical nature, such as statistics, personal preferences, personalisation of content, etc.
The web server does not associate the cookie with you as a person, but with your web browser. In fact, if you regularly browse with Chrome and try browsing the same web page with Firefox, you will see that the web page does not realise that you are the same person because it actually remembers information from the browser, not the person.
What types of cookies are there?
- Technical cookies: These are the most basic and allow sites to know whether it’s a human or an automated application browsing, to see whether it’s an anonymous user or a registered user browsing and to perform basic tasks required for the operation of any dynamic website, among other things.
- Analysis cookies: These collect information about the type of browsing you’re doing, the sections you use most, products consulted, time zone, language, etc.
- Advertising cookies: These display advertising according to your browsing, your country of origin, language, etc.
