What are cookies?
A cookie is information stored on your computer by a website you visit. Cookies usually store your preferences, website settings, such as your preferred language or address. Later, when you open the same web page again, your internet browser sends back cookies that belong to that page. This allows the site to display information tailored to your needs.
Cookies can store a wide range of information including personal information (such as your name or email address). However, this information can only be saved if you allow it – websites cannot access information you have not given them and cannot access other files on your computer. The default cookie saving and sending activities are not visible to you. However, you can change your internet browser settings to choose whether to approve or reject requests to save cookies, and delete saved cookies automatically when you close your internet browser and the like.
