What is a "cookie"?

An "Internet Cookie" (also known as "browser cookie", "HTTP cookie" or simply "cookie") is a small file of letters and numbers that will be stored on your computer, mobile device or other equipment from which the Internet is accessed.

A cookie is installed through a request issued by a web server to a browser (e.g. Microsoft Edge, Chrome) and, despite the fact that it is stored on the equipment (computer, mobile terminal, etc.) used to access internet pages, it cannot access other information in that device and cannot contain software, viruses or spyware.

The cookie stores important information that improves the Internet browsing experience (e.g. settings of the language in which you want to access a site; keeping a user logged in to the webmail account; online banking security; keeping the products in the shopping cart).

In most cases cookies do not process personal data where they are used and do not identify users of websites.

A cookie consists of 2 parts: the name and the content or value of the cookie.

What are the main categories of cookies?

From the point of view of the duration of their existence, there are two categories of cookies:

  • Permanent/persistent cookies: These types of cookies are stored on the hard drive of the equipment used to access a website and are not deleted when the browsing session is closed. They are retained and reused each time the user returns to that website, but they can be deleted at any time by the user, with predefined validity periods.
