What is a cookie?
These are small text files, given to your browser by the server you are visiting to view a website.

Depending on the website you are visiting, the cookies that are generated by your visit may last just for the duration of time you are on the site (known as a ‘session’ cookie) or much longer, sometimes as long as 10 years.
