Cookies are used on most websites. They enable websites to recall previous visits you’ve made and improve the user experience by storing preferences and helping navigate between pages more efficiently. For example, cookies allow a site to remember preferences, recall what is in a user’s virtual shopping cart or keep a user logged in as they move from page to page on the site. Websites may use a ‘session cookie’ which is used for one visit, or a ‘persistent cookie’ (also known as a ‘tracking cookie’) that is used for multiple visits to that particular website. Some websites do use cookies for marketing purposes, allowing them to target their advertising messages and/or determine demographic information and web browsing behaviour. ‘First-party cookies’ are set by the website while ‘third-party cookies’ are set by other websites providing content on the webpage.

Stored in the web browser of a computer, mobile phone or other internet-connected device, a cookie is a text file that is put in place by a website’s server and that is only accessible by that server. The cookie contains the name of the website and some anonymous data.
