What are cookies?
A cookie is a very small text file that a web server can save in the browser of a computer to store some kind of information about the user. The cookie uniquely identifies the computer, and can only be read by the website that sent it to the computer.
A cookie is not an executable file or a program and therefore cannot spread or contain a virus or other malicious software, nor can it be longer than 4,000 characters.
What are cookies for?
The purpose of using cookies is to remember the user’s preferences (language, country, login, browser characteristics, information on the use of our website, etc.)
