What are cookies and why does the website need them
A cookie is a small text file that is downloaded into the user’s computer when they visit the website and it usually contains:
- the name of the server from which the cookie was sent;
- the cookie lifetime;
- the value – usually a randomly generated unique number.
The cookie itself does not contain or collect information. However, if it is read by the server in conjunction with the browser, it can help the website implement more user-friendly services – for example, by remembering previous purchases or data on the user’s account.
These cookies can thus enrich the user experience on a trustworthy website.
However, cookies can also be used in ways that constitute a breach of an individual’s privacy. Cookies may be stored for various lengths of time; they may be stored for the length of the browser session or much longer.
