- What Are Cookies?
Cookies are a common feature of websites. They consist of text-only information that the Website transfers to your browser. This enables the Website to recognize your computer upon revisiting and remember specific details about your previous visits (such as visited pages, preferred menu settings, visit dates and times, etc.), as well as information about your browsing experience (e.g., IP address, browser type, hardware type, etc.). Cookies can be either temporary, known as “session” cookies, or persistent. Session cookies track your activity on the Website during a single browsing session and expire when you close your browser. Persistent cookies, on the other hand, remain stored on your computer and allow the Website to remember you and your preferences for future visits until they expire or are deleted.
