What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file that may be placed on your device (e.g. computer, smartphone or tablet) when you visit a website. A cookie will usually contain the name of the website from which the cookie originated, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e. how long it will remain on your device), and a value, which is usually a randomly generated number.
Cookies are used to allow websites to function more efficiently, but also to send information to the owner of a website. Cookies also make it possible to separate different users from each other, which can give each user a more personalised and positive experience of the website.
