INFORMATION ON COOKIES
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a harmless text file stored in your browser when you visit almost any website. Cookies are useful for enabling the website to remember your visit when you browse that site again. Although many people do not know it, cookies have been used for the past 20 years, since the first World Wide Web browsers appeared.
What is a cookie NOT?
It is not a virus, a Trojan, a worm, spam or spyware, nor does it open pop-up windows.
What information does a cookie store?
Cookies do not usually store sensitive information on you, such as credit cards or bank details, photographs, your Identity Number or personal information, etc. The data they store is technical in nature, such as personal preferences, content personalization, etc.
The web server does not associate you as a person, but rather your web browser. In fact, if you normally browse with Internet Explorer and try to browse the same website with Firefox or Chrome, you will see that the website does not realize that you are the same person because in reality it is associated to the browser, not the person.
Which type of cookies are there?
