What is a cookie?

A cookie is a text file stored on your computer by a website you visit (NB the term ‘computer’ here also refers to tablet and smartphone devices, unless otherwise stated). Cookies are used to give visitors to a website access to different functionalities and make it possible to identify the visitor.

There are two types of cookies. The first type stores a file on your computer for a longer period of time and has a pre-set expiry date. This type of cookie is used for example for features that tell you what has changed since the last time you visited the website in question. Once the cookie’s expiry date is past, it will be deleted from your computer the next time you visit the website that stored the cookie on your computer.

The second type of cookie is more short-lived (so called session cookies) and has no expiry date. It is stored on your device temporarily, for as long as you are visiting the website it relates to. This type of cookie is used for example to remember your language preference for the site and will be deleted when you close your web browser.
