WHAT IS A COOKIE?
A cookie is information saved on the user’s computer by the website he visited. Cookies usually store user preferences, preferences for a website, such as preferred language or address. Later, when the user opens the same web page again, the internet browser sends back the cookies belonging to that page. The above allows us to display information adapted to the needs of each individual user.
Cookies can store a wide range of information including personal information (such as a user’s name or email address). However, this information can only be saved if the user allows it – websites cannot gain access to information for which the user has not given permission and cannot access other files on the user’s computer. The default activities of saving and sending cookies are not visible to users. However, the user can change his internet browser settings in such a way that he can choose for himself whether he wants to approve or reject the requests to save cookies in such a way as to delete saved cookies automatically when closing the internet browser and the like.
TYPES OF COOKIES
Permanent or saved cookies remain on the computer after closing the Internet browser program. With them, websites store information such as login name and password, language settings or cookie settings so that you do not have to re-enter them on each subsequent visit. Persistent cookies can remain on your computer or mobile device for days, months, even years.
Temporary cookies or session cookies are removed from the computer when the internet browser is closed. With them, websites store temporary data, such as the last few pages you opened on the website you are visiting or the items in your shopping cart if you are on a website that specializes in online sales.
