What is a cookie?
Cookies are used today in connection with virtually all websites and are in many cases necessary to provide a given service on the website.
A cookie is a small text file which is saved on the user's IT equipment (PC, tablet, smartphone etc.) so that the equipment can be recognised. Cookies can be used, among other things, to compile statistics on users' use of the website and to optimize the page's content. A cookie is a passive file and thus cannot collect information from the user's computer or spread computer viruses or other harmful programs. Some cookies are placed by other parties (so-called 3rd parties) than the one that appears in the address line (URL) in the browser. It can be ordinary content, but also e.g. analysis tools or embedded comment fields. This means that cookies are stored from parties other than the one who owns the website.
Some cookies are only stored on the user's IT equipment as long as the user has their browser open (session cookies). Other cookies are stored for a longer period of time (persistent cookies). When the user re-visits a website, session cookies will be reset, while persistent cookies are typically renewed.
