An „Internet Cookie” (also known as „browser cookie” or „HTTP cookie” or „cookie”) is a small file consisting of letters and numbers, which will be stored on the computer, the mobile device or other equipment, used by the user to access the internet.

Cookies are installed following the request emitted by a web server to a browser (for example: Internet Explorer, Edge, Firefox, Chrome). Once installed, cookies have a defined lifespan, after that they remain “passive”, meaning that they don’t contain software programs, viruses or spyware, and they won’t access any information on the hard drive of the user, on whose equipment they were installed.

A cookie is composed of two parts: the name of the cookie and the content or the value of the cookie. From a technical point of view, only the web server that sent the cookie can access it again, as soon as the user returns to the website associated with the respective web server.
