WHAT IS A COOKIE?

A cookie is a data file which a website stores on your computer in order to recognise your computer the next time you visit the website. Cookies are sent back and forth between your browser and a webserver and contain information about e.g.

  • If a user is logged in
  • How the user is using the website
  • What the user did search for on the website

A cookie is a passive file and cannot spread virus or other harmful programs like spyware and malware on your computer. Their primary function is to help in analysing how the website is being used in order for the website administrator to enhance the user experience. In some instances a cookie can be necessary in order to deliver a service on the website.

 

Cookies are often deleted automatically from the browser when the browser is being closed (so-called session cookies). Cookies can also be set with a certain expiration time so that data will exist in a shorter or longer time (persistent cookies). Persistent cookies are often saved on the hard disk. Additionally, there is often a distinction between first part cookies and third part cookies. First part cookies are set by the web page that the user is visiting. Third part cookies are set by a third party who has an element that is embedded into the page that the user is visiting. Third part cookies are among others usually set by web analytic programs.
