2. What are cookies?

A cookie will usually contain the name of the website from which the cookie has come from, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e. how long the cookie will remain on your device), and a value, which is usually a randomly generated unique number.

Cookies can be used by web servers to identify and track users as they navigate different pages on a website and identify users returning to a website. Two types of cookies may be used, “session cookies” and “persistent cookies”. Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your browning session. Persistent cookies remain longer on your device, for the duration of each specific cookie, and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date).
