What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that is saved onto your computer or portable device when you visit a website.

There are two types of cookies. One type saves a file for a longer period of time on your device. For example, it uses features that communicate what has changed since the user last visited the current site. The other type of cookies is called session cookies. While you are browsing a page, this cookie is temporarily stored in your computer’s memory, for example, to keep track of which language you have chosen during a previous visit. Session cookies are not stored on your computer for a long time and are removed when you close your browser.

Avoid cookies

You can apply settings on your computer if you do not want to accept cookies. This automatically denies the website from storing cookies onto your device or informs you each time a site requests to store a cookie. You can also delete previously stored cookies, through your web browser setting. See the browser’s help pages for more information.
