What is a Cookie?

A cookie is a piece of data stored by a website on your computer or mobile device. Cookies are useful for storing data so that when you revisit a site the stored cookie data can be retrieved and reused. An example of when this often happens is if you choose to remain logged in to a website. On doing so, a cookie is stored to remember your choice of remaining logged in, so that even after you close your browser or turn off your computer you don’t have to login again when you next visit the page.

Cookies and other technologies allow a site or services to know if your computer or device has visited it before. These technologies can then be used to deliver products, services, and ads, help us understand how the site or service is being used, help you navigate between pages efficiently, help remember your preferences, and generally improve your experience in using our services. Cookies can also help ensure marketing you see online is more relevant to you and your interests.

Are Cookies Dangerous?

Cookies can be very useful and are used to improve your overall experience when browsing a website. Most cookies are harmless and are only used for a single purpose and any information stored in them is usually completely anonymous. There are websites out there which intentionally use cookies to track your activity over long periods of time, but this is usually only carried out by the less law abiding websites. Cookie privacy is an on-going concern which, in turn, has led to EU law makers taking action in the form of a new legislation regarding the use of cookies.

How long will cookies stay on my device?

The length of time a cookie will stay on your computer or mobile device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies will only stay on your device until you stop browsing. Persistent cookies stay on your computer or mobile device until they expire or are deleted.
