Cookies

  • What is a cookie?
    A cookie is a small amount of data placed on the computer of a user by a website.
  • Why do websites use cookies?
    Webpages have no memory. A user who surfs from page to page within a website is not recognised as the same user across pages. Cookies enable the user's browser to be recognised by the website. Therefore, cookies are mainly used to remember the choices a user has made (e.g., remembering the language you speak), or to recognise recurring visitors to the site.
  • Do all cookies do the same thing?
    No, there are different types of cookies used for different purposes. Cookies can be distinguished by function, lifetime and the party that places them.
