What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. This allows the server to deliver a page tailored to a particular user, or the page itself can contain some script which is aware of the data in the cookie and so is able to carry information from one visit to the website (or related site) to the next.

Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting, known as ‘first-party cookies; or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website, known as ‘third-party cookies’.
