What are cookies like?
An HTTP cookie, commonly referred to simply as a cookie, is a packet of information sent by a web server to an Internet browser, such as Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Safari, Opera, Mozilla Firefox, Chrome, etc., and then returned by the browser each time it accesses this server.
There are two main types of cookies – persistent and temporary or “session” cookies. Persistent cookies are stored as a file on your computer or mobile device for a long time. A cookie remains in your device for use in the next session, and it (the cookie) can be deleted in the meantime. In case you use more than one browser, each of them has a separate space for storing cookies. Temporary (session) cookies are temporarily placed on your device when you visit our website, but disappear when you close the page, which means that they are not stored permanently on your device. Cookies do not refer to a person, but to a combination of device and internet browser. Therefore, a person who uses multiple browsers and/or devices has a separate set of cookies for each device and browser combination. On the other hand, cookies do not differentiate between multiple users sharing the same device and browser, unless they have different user profiles.
Cookies perform many different functions. For example, they help us analyze how well our website is performing so that we can improve it.
