A cookie is a small text file stored on your computer or other device. Cookies may contain text and numbers such as dates. Cookies are not applications and do not contain viruses or other malicious codes. Cookies serve to store specific information about the users on a website so that the website will later recognize the user and load the stored information. This could e.g. be login information, information about previous visits and which areas of the website the user has visited.
A cookie can only be loaded from the URL it is stored in. Regular cookies stored from a website are typically stored from the address you see in the address bar of the browser. However, a website may also contain fragments and information retrieved from addresses other than the one shown in the address bar of the browser. It can e.g. be a banner ad or an analysis tool, but also regular content. In this way, cookies can also be stored from other addresses via the website you visit. So-called third-party cookies.
Some cookies (so-called session cookies) are stored only during a browser session and deleted when the browser is closed. Other cookies (so-called persistent cookies) are stored for a certain period of time and they are not deleted before the expiry of this time period.
Most browsers automatically accept cookies. You can set your browser to inform you when you receive a cookie, or you can prevent cookies from being stored on your computer by setting your browser to block cookies. Some browsers allow you to set this for only specific websites.
