A cookie is a file with an identifier (a sequence of letters and numbers) that a network server sends to a browser and is stored in the browser. The identifier is sent back to the server each time the browser requests entry to a server page.
Cookies can be “persistent” or “session”. A browser will store a persistent cookie and will remain valid until the expiration date, unless the user deletes it before the expiration date, and, on the other hand, a session cookie will expire at the end of the user’s session, when the browser is closed.
Cookies do not usually contain information that identifies any user, but the personal information about the user that we store may be linked to the information contained in the cookies and obtained from them.
