What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of text stored on your computer when you visit a website.

They are not programs and cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses – instead cookies act more like a passport, which the site checks and updates whenever you visit.

Almost every site on the internet uses cookies and their functions include:

  • verifying your identity for security purposes
  • determining the type of browser and settings you are using
  • allowing site owners and third-party advertisers to tailor content to your preferences
