What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file that stores Internet settings. Almost every website uses cookie technology. It is downloaded by your internet browser the first time you visit a website. The next time you visit this website with the same terminal device, the cookie and the information stored in it are either sent back to the website that generated it (first-party cookie) or sent to another website to which it belongs (third-party cookie). This allows the website to recognize that you have been visited before with that browser and, in some cases, to vary the content displayed.
Some cookies are extremely useful as they can improve the user experience when you return to a website you have visited several times before. For example, provided you are using the same device and browser as before, cookies remember your preferences about how you use a page and tailor the offers you see to be more relevant to your personal interests and needs.
Depending on their function and purpose, cookies can be divided into four categories:
