What is a Cookie?
Cookies are tiny non-malicious text files that are downloaded to a device when certain web pages are visited. On each subsequent visit to a website Cookies are then sent back to the originating website or to another website that recognises that Cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device and therefore make the browsing experience more efficient.
Cookies are deployed for a wide range of good uses including offering product recommendations, remembering personal profiles settings, keeping track of what a shopper has in their basket, serving Google analytics, preloading forms with previously entered information and many more. Cookies are also used by website agencies in order to view encrypted information gathered from the cookies to help improve a user’s experience of a website. These are all good things that enhance the experience of a visit to a website. All browsers allow cookies by default as well as offer the facility for the user to change Cookie settings or turn them off entirely.
