What are Cookies
A cookie is a small text file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive or memory, and installs when permission is granted. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences. All information gathered is anonymous and helps provide you with a better browsing experience.
There are two types of cookies, Sessions and Permanent. Session cookies are stored in the memory of your computer or other device such as mobile phones or tablet devices, and are deleted when the browser is closed. On the other hand, permanent cookies are placed on the hard drive of your device and remain there for a much longer time (months or even years).
