What is a “cookie”?
We invite you to find out what a cookie is: The definition of a “cookie”, also known as “internet cookie”, „browser cookie” or „HTTP cookie”, is the following: a small file, consisting of numbers and letters that is stored on a computer or device used by the user to access the Internet.
This cookie is installed through the request issued by a web server to a browser. Depending on which browser the user is using (whether Safari, Edge, Chrome or Mozilla Firefox), the cookie is passive. A cookie does not have software programs such as viruses or spyware, so the cookie can not damage your device or computer. Also, the cookie does not have the ability to access information on the user’s hard drive.
You should also know that the duration of a internet cookie is determined and consists of two parts: its name and its content or value.
Good to know: A cookie itself does not require personal information for later use. Also, generally, an internet cookie does not personally identify an internet user.

- Persistent Cookie – this type of cookie is stored on the hard drive of a PC (with a fixed duration). This is also a cookie created by a website other than the one the user uses, also known as “third party cookies”.
