What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file, usually containing a sequence of letters and numbers, that is uploaded on a user’s account each time he or she visits a certain web page or portal. At each renewed visit, the web page will access the information about the uploaded cookie and recognise the user according to it. Cookies are important for the functioning of web pages, as they enhance the user experience. With their help, web page owners can analyse the viewing and other activity on their web page. The cookie itself doesn’t contain or hold any information. If the server accesses the cookie together with the web page, the web page can offer user friendly services to the web page visitors — for example, it can remember previous purchases or information about the user’s account. The cookie can only be read and used by the server that sent the cookie. The use of cookies is a standard practice on most web pages. Standard browser settings enable the use of cookies.

Information Commissioner classifies cookies according to their invasiveness:

  • Transient or session cookies
  • Persistent cookies
  • 1st party cookies
  • Third party cookies

You can block the cookies completely by using the settings in your internet browser, but most web pages won’t work as well for you as a result. Instructions on how to change cookie settings in your favourite browser and how to delete them can be found on the following links:
