What cookies are
Cookies are short text files created by a web server and saved to your computer through the browser. If you go back to the same web later, the browser sends the saved cookies back and the server thus gets all information saved by it to your computer before. Cookies are used by the absolute majority of webs for their activity.
How cookies are divided
Cookies can be divided by the party that saves them to your computer, which means into:
- First party cookies – their validity is limited to the domain of the web that you are viewing. These cookies are deemed to be safer.
- Third party cookies – are placed using a script from another domain. Users can thus be monitored across domains. They are often used to evaluate the efficiency of advertising channels.
Cookies can be divided by their durability into:
- Session cookies – These are deleted from your computer on closing the browser.
- Persistent cookies – They remain on closing the browser and are deleted only after the lapse of a very long time (which depends on your browser settings and cookie settings). You can also remove them manually.
