What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by the user send to the terminal used by the user to access the Internet (usually the browser), where they are stored and then retransmitted to the same websites on the next visit by the same user. Cookies cannot be used to retrieve any data from the hard disk, transmit computer viruses or identify and use email addresses. Every cookie is unique in relation to the browser and the device used to access the Website. Cookies can be installed by the operator of the website that the user is visiting (so-called "first-party cookies") or by other websites (so-called "third-party cookies"). Cookies can be stored on the user's device permanently until they expire or until they are deleted by the user (so-called "permanent cookies") or they can be automatically deleted whenever the website navigation is interrupted when the browser gets closed (so-called "session cookies").
What are cookies used for?
Cookies are generally used for various purposes, such as allowing navigation between pages of a website efficiently, applying user preferences and, more generally, improving navigation by the user thanks to the customisation of the website based on the user's navigation habits and profile. Cookies can also help to make the advertisements viewed by online users more in line with the users and their interests.
Type of cookies
