What are cookies?
Cookies (also known as ‘HTTP cookie’ or ‘browser cookie’ or ‘web cookie’) are small bits of data or information that is stored as plain text files (.txt) on a user’s computer through a user’s website browser.
Cookies are necessary for websites to work properly. A basic website can function without serving cookies, but most websites required some kind of cookie to be stored on the user’s computer so the website remembers the user’s preferences (i.e. language).
Cookies are created and stored on a user’s computer when the user’s browser loads a particular page or website. The website sends this information to the browser which then creates a text file, this is known as the “cookie.” Every time the user goes back to the same webpage or website, their browser retrieves this “cookie” and sends the file to the website.
