What are cookies?

We use the term “cookies” to refer to cookies and similar technologies through which information can be collected automatically.
An “Internet cookie” (also known as a “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” or “cookie”) is a small file of letters and numbers that will be stored on a user’s computer, mobile device or other equipment through which the internet is accessed.
Cookies are set by a request from a web-server to a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome). Once installed, cookies have a fixed lifetime and remain “passive” in the sense that they do not contain software, viruses or spyware and will not access information on the hard drive of the user on whose equipment they are installed.

A cookie consists of two parts:

  • the name of the cookie; and
  • the content or value of the cookie.

Technically, only the web-server that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the web page associated with that web-server.

Session cookies – A “session cookie” is a cookie that is automatically deleted when the user closes their browser.
