2. What are cookies?
For almost any modern website to work properly, it needs to collect certain basic information about its users. To do this, a site will create files known as cookies – small text files that are stored on computers of the users – the site visitors. These cookies are designed to allow the website to recognise its users. This is especially useful when revisiting the site as these cookies allow the recognition of users and their preferences on the website, and to authorise other websites to recognise these users.
Cookies do a lot of different jobs which make your experience of the Internet much smoother and more interactive. For instance, they are used to remember your preferences on sites you visit often, to remember your user ID and the contents of your shopping cart… Thus, they help you navigate between pages more efficiently. They also help ensure that the advertisements that you see online are more relevant to you and your interests. Some data collected is designed to detect browsing patterns and approximate geographical location to improve user experience.
