What is a cookie?
A cookie is one or more text strings that are stored locally in your browser. Cookies can be used for different purposes, for example to recognize when a device (such as the computer or mobile phone) visits a website. In some cases, cookies are used to customize content on a site or save settings that the user has made (for example, remember me when I log in to a website).
No cookies are used to identify a visitor as an individual or a person, but for statistical purposes only, as an anonymous unique visitor to the site.
