Cookies are small text files created by a web server, delivered through a web browser, and stored on your computer. Cookies are used on many websites to allow a visitor access to different features. The information in the cookie can also be used to track a user’s browsing of sites using the same cookie.
There are two types of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are created temporarily in your browser’s subfolder while you are visiting a website, for example to keep track of which language you have chosen. Once you leave the site, the session cookie is deleted. On the other hand, persistent cookie files remain in your browser’s subfolder and are activated again once you visit the website that created that particular cookie. A persistent cookie remains in the browser’s subfolder for the duration period set within the cookie’s file.
