What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that is transferred to the user's computer during their visit to a website and usually contains:
- the name of the server from which the cookie was sent,
- the lifespan of the cookie, and
- a value – usually a randomly generated unique number.
The cookie itself does not contain or collect any information. If the server reads it together with a web browser, this can help the website in the provision of user-friendly services, for example, to recall previous purchases or data about the user's account. Only the server that sent the cookie can read and use this cookie.
Thus, on a website you can trust, cookies can enrich the experience. Alternatively, cookies are also used in ways that constitute interference with an individual's privacy. Cookies can be stored for different periods: only for the duration of your browsing session or much longer.
TEMPORARY OR SESSION COOKIES
"Live" from the moment the user opens the web browser until the moment they end the session and close the browser. Websites use them to store temporary information, such as items in a shopping cart, for greater security in online banking, etc. Since those cookies are stored for a short time, their invasion of the user’s privacy of can be reduced.
PERSISTENT OR STORED COOKIES
Remain stored even when the user closes the browser and ends the session. Web sites use them, for example, to store information on registration, page language settings, but also to build user profiles and analyse website traffic. Persistent cookies can remain on your computer for days, months or even years.
First-party cookies are from the site that the user is viewing, and can be permanent or temporary. Websites use these cookies to store information that will be reused the next time a user visits this site.
Third-party cookies come from other, partner websites (for example, those that display ads on the original website or measure traffic). In this way, third parties may collect information about users from different websites and use them for different purposes, from advertising to analytics to improving their products. These cookies represent a major intrusion in the privacy of the user.
