What is a cookie?

A cookie is a file that websites send to devices that connect to them. Although cookies are often only used for technical purposes, they can also store and recover information about the browsing habits of a user or a device and, depending on the information they contain and the way in which they use your computer or device, they can be used to recognise the user.

Some cookies are controlled and managed by the website owner (known as ‘proprietary cookies’) and others are controlled by third parties (known as ‘third party cookies’). This second type provides a tool or feature integrated into the website.

Some cookies are deleted at the end of a browsing session (session cookies), whereas others continue to be stored on users’ computers and devices and can be accessed for a longer period of time (persistent or stored cookies).
