What are Cookies?

Cookies are messages that web servers pass to your webbrowserwhen you visit Internet sites. Your browser stores each message in a small file, calledcookie.txt.

These are stored on a user's device to help remember information, settings, preferences, or sign-on credentials that a user has previously saved. This helps create a convenient and faster website experience. Thesecookieshave an expiration date issued to it by the webserver. Session Cookie: A session cookie contains information that is stored in a temporary memory location and then subsequently deleted after the session is completed or the web browser is closed. This cookie stores information that the user has entered and tracks the movements of the user within the website. Because a session cookie is temporal, it does not accumulate information from the user’s PC or the user’s identity. The information it stores is in the form of a session identification that will not, in any case, relate personally to the user.

They allow website owners to collect analytics data, remember language settings, and perform other useful functions that help provide a good user experience. Third Party Cookies: These are cookiescreated by domains other than the one you are visiting directly, hence the name third-party. They are used for cross-site tracking, retargeting and ad-serving.
