What are cookies?
We use the term “cookies” to refer to cookies and similar technologies through which information can be automatically collected.
An “Internet Cookie” (also known as “cookie browser” or “HTTP cookie” or “cookie”) is a small file of letters and numbers that will be stored on your computer, other equipment of a user through which the Internet is accessed.

Once installed cookies have a fixed duration of existence, remaining “passive” in the sense that they do not contain software, viruses or spyware and will not access the information on the hard drive of the user whose equipment they have installed.
A cookie consists of two parts: the cookie name and the content or the cookie value.
From a technical point of view, only the web server that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the web page associated with that web-server.
