What is a ”Cookie”?
A web cookie (or just “cookie”) is a small piece of information sent from a website to a user’s computer, when the user is browsing that website. The next time a user visits the same website, the cookie(s) remember the user’s preferences. Cookies do not contain personal information about the visitor of the website.
Some of the purposes of cookies are:
a) authentication (login/logout)
b) stateful information (previous user’s interactions, such as adding items in the shopping basket)
c) activity (clicking on buttons/links)
d) statistics (number and duration of page views, date and time, etc.)
e) form fields (information previously added by the user, such as address, username, password, etc.)
The most common types of cookies are:
1) Session cookies: They expire after the user leaves the website.
2) Permanent (persistent) cookies: They expire after a specific date/length of time; the duration differs from one cookie to another.
3) First-party cookies: Cookies created by the same website the visitor is currently visiting.
4) Third-party cookies: Cookies that are embedded by another website or advertiser (as opposed to first-party cookies that are embedded by the current website).
