What is a cookie?
A “cookie” is a small amount of text that is stored on your browser (such as Google Chrome or Apple Safari) when you browse on most websites.
What a cookie is NOT:
A cookie is not a virus, a Trojan, a worm, spam or spyware. It does not open pop-up windows.
What information is stored in a cookie?
Cookies do not usually store sensitive information about you such as your credit card or bank account information, photographs or personal information, etc. The data they store are technical, statistical, personal preferences, content customisation, etc.
The web server will not associate you as a person but rather your web browser. In fact, if you typically use Chrome and switch to Firefox, you’ll notice that when you visit a website it won’t recognise you as the same person because it actually associates data to the browser, not the person.
What types of cookies are there?
- Technical cookies: They are the most basic and allow, among other things, determining when a human or an automated application is browsing and when an anonymous user or a registered user is browsing—basic tasks for managing any dynamic website.
- Cookies analysis: They collect information on the type of browsing, the sections most used, products checked, time period of use, language, etc.
What are proprietary and third-party cookies?
Proprietary cookies are those generated by the page you’re visiting and third-party cookies are created by external services or providers.
