What is a cookie?

A cookie is a text file placed on your computer or other IT equipment

A cookie enables recognition of your computer and the collection of information on what websites and functions have been visited. It helps maintain your settings when you are navigating a website or return to the same website at a later point.

Permanent cookies should also be deleted, either automatically or after a certain period.
