Cookies are small files, letters or numbers, that will be saved on your computer, mobile terminal or other equipment you are using to access the internet.
Cookies are installed through the request of a web server to a browser (ex: Internet explorer, chromes).
Cookies are not completely “passive” (they do not contain software programs, viruses or spyware and cannot access information on the user’s hard drive).
A cookie is formed from two parts: its name and content or value. The lifespan of a cookie is determined; technically, only the webserver that issued the cookie can access it again the moment a returning user appears.
Cookies do not require personal data in order to be used and, in most cases, they do not personally identify the internet users.
There are two main cookie categories:
- Session cookies: they are saved temporarily in the file “cookies” of the web browser, so the browser can memorize them until the user leaves the website or shuts down the browser window
- Persistent cookies: the are being saved on the computer’s hard drive and are activated again when the user revisits the site that created that specific cookie. Persistent cookies include those found on another website than the one the user is visiting. These are known as third party cookies. They memorize interests of a user in order to deliver publicity content as relevant as possible.
The lifespan of a cookie can vary, according to its purpose. Some cookies are single user and others are kept and reused every time the user returns on the website.
All cookies can be deleted by the user at any moment through the browser settings.
Some content sections can be used through third party cookies. The third parties have the same obligation to respect the laws applied regarding confidentiality and cookie policies.
