1. What are cookies?
Many online service providers use ‘cookies’ to provide reporting information and help with online advertising. A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
Cookies may be either ’persistent’ cookies or ‘session’ cookies.
- A persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and remains valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date.
- A session cookie expires at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
Cookies don’t typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
