What is a cookie?
Cookies are small computer files, typically containing letters and numbers that are created through web browsers. Cookies are used as a form of digital memory to remember bits of information about a user’s visits to and use of web pages. They are mostly intended to enhance the user’s web experience by recording preferences and settings. However, Cookies can also be used as ‘trackers’ to collect data about web sites and pages visited. This information may then be used to display web content and advertisements thought to be of most interest to the individual concerned.
