What are cookies and why the website needs them
A cookie is a small text file that is transferred to the user’s computer when he visits a website and usually contains:
the name of the server from which the cookie was sent;
lifetime of the cookie;
value – a simple randomly generated unique number.
The cookie itself does not contain or collect information. However, if it is read by the server together with the web browser, it can help the website provide more user-friendly services – for example, by remembering previous purchases or the user’s account information. Only the server that sent the cookie can read and use that cookie.
On a trusted website, cookies can thus enrich the experience. However, cookies can also be used in ways that represent an invasion of an individual’s privacy. Cookies can be stored for different lengths of time, only for the duration of the browsing session or much longer.
