What are cookies and why does a website need them?
A cookie is a small text file that is downloaded to a user’s computer when he or she visits a web site and usually contains:
- the name of the server from which the cookie was sent;
- cookie life expectancy;
- value – usually a randomly generated unique number.
The cookie itself does not contain or collect information. However, when read by the server along with a web browser, this can help the site to perform more user-friendly services – for example, by remembering previous purchases or user account information. Only the server that sent the cookie can read and use this cookie.
On a trusted website, cookies thus enrich the experience. However, cookies may also be used in ways that interfere with an individual’s privacy. They can be stored for different periods of time – only for the duration of the browsing session or for much longer.
