What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are saved on your computer, tablet or mobile phone by websites that you visit. A website can save one or more cookies.

What is saved?

The information saved is often comprised of navigation information about your visit to that website. By keeping this, the website can guide you better through the different pages during your visit.

Cookies are often used to save your preferred settings. For example remembering your username, or if you prefer to display 25 forum topics simultaneously instead of 10 topics.

Why save a cookie?

When you visit the same website again a week later, then the website can retrieve the information from the cookie that was saved during your last visit. The website can use the information in the cookie to, for example, change back your navigation data and preferences. So the website’s login page auto-completes your username, or a shop may display the products that you have viewed during your last vist(s).

In conclusion, cookies allow for personalisation of a website and making it more user-friendly.

Who can read the information stored in a cookie?

Only you have full access to all cookies from every website visited on your device(s). Many browsers now offer the option to see what is stored in cookies (and the option to delete or block).

For a website that access is different: When a cookie is saved it is linked to the website’s domain name. A website can only read the information stored in cookies from the same domain name. For example, the website cannot read cookies that were created by the website saves the cookies under the domain name:
