What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer via a web server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the content of the cookies and allow the website to remember browser preferences and navigate efficiently.
For legal purposes in Europe, alternative systems to cookies, such as “local storage” (where information is not stored on a server, but in your browser), are affected by the same regulation.
What information do they keep?
Cookies usually store information of a technical nature, personal preferences, information for personalization of content, usage statistics, links to social networks, your access as a user, etc. Its objective is to adapt the content of the web to your profile and your needs. Without cookies, the services offered by the websites would be significantly affected.
Cookies do not usually contain important information about you, your credit cards or bank details, or photographs, your ID or personal information. The data that they keep are only of a technical nature about your preferences for accessing the web (language, type of profile, etc.), contents that you have already seen, pages you visit, and so on.
On the other hand, the information saved on the cookies is not associated to you personally (not in your name), but to the browser of your computer or mobile phone. In fact, if you usually surf with your computer and try to do it with your mobile phone, or if you change your browser, you will see that the web does not realize that you are the same person, and you will have to choose language again and select things that you had already selected in another device. That is, the cookie is aware of the machine that is consulting it, but not of which human is behind it.
