What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file that stores Internet settings. It typically contains the domain name from which the cookie originates, the "life span" of the cookie and a numerical value (usually a unique, randomly generated number).

What is the purpose of cookies?

Almost every website uses cookies to optimize page design. Cookies are downloaded and stored by your Internet browser the first time you visit a website. The website will load faster during your next visit using the same terminal device. The contents also vary depending on use. You will see content that corresponds to your own personal interests and needs.

How does it work?

Every time you load the website, your browser checks if a cookie associated with this website exists (i.e. contains the name of the website). If it does, your browser sends the information saved in this cookie back to the website. This allows the website to recognize that it had already been opened in this browser before, and some of the displayed content may vary based on this information.
