What are Cookies?
A “cookie” is a small piece of information sent by a web server to store on a web browser so it can later be read back from that browser. This is useful for having the browser remember some specific information. Without cookies, websites and their servers have no memory. A cookie, like a key, enables swift passage from one place to the next. Without a cookie every time you open a new web page the server where that page is stored will treat you like a completely new visitor.
There are two types of cookie:
Session (Transient) cookies: These cookies are erased when you close your browser, and do not collect information from your computer. They typically store information in the form of a session identification that does not personally identify the user. Web pages in essence don’t have any memory so cannot store any data, the server stores the cookies (data) to make your browsing experience more efficient for example it remembers what page you were on in case you refresh the webpage or it can remember what was placed in an online shopping basket each time you leave a page.
Persistent (Permanent or Stored) cookies: These cookies are stored on your hard drive until they expire (i.e. a set expiration date) or until you delete them. These cookies are used to collect identifying information about the user, such as Web surfing behaviour or user preferences for a specific site.
Cookie security and privacy issues
Cookies are NOT viruses. Cookies use a plain text format. They are not compiled pieces of code so they cannot be executed nor are they self-executing. Accordingly, they cannot make copies of themselves and spread to other networks or computers to execute and replicate again. Since they cannot perform these functions, they fall outside the standard virus definition.
A Cookie cannot be used to get data from your hard drive, get your email address or steal sensitive information about you as a person. Cookies can be used to track where you travel over a particular site, if you wish to disable cookies you can do so with your web browser.
Cookies are not used to identify you personally, but they can remember activities and preferences chosen by you and your browser. You can manage cookies by controlling which cookies are saved or by deleting them through your web browser.
