What is a Cookie?
When we talk about cookies on a website, we’re not talking about the yummy chocolate chip kind – although we always have a stash of these in our office! Cookies are small text files which are downloaded and stored on your device when you visit a website. They don’t pose any threat to your device, they’re simply there to make sure you have the best possible experience while you browse the website.
Cookies can be used to help show you your preferred version of a website – for example, a certain font size or language which you’ve selected in the past – to make it quicker and easier for you to use the website. Other cookies can help track anonymous data about how users interact with a website, giving a website owner information on how they can improve the website and browsing experience. Advertising cookies can help show ads and personalised product recommendation to those who may be interested in it.
