What Are Cookies?
Cookies are a variety of files that often include unique identifiers. These files are normally sent from web servers to web browsers. Cookies may also be sent back to the server when the browser requests a page from the server.
Cookie files may be used by web servers to identify and track users as they browse the pages on a website, as well as to identify users returning to a website.
There are two major types of cookies, and they may be either "persistent" or "session" cookies.
A persistent cookie is a cookie file that consists of a text file sent from a server to a browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until it expires. The user may also delete this file manually before its expiry date.
A session cookie, conversely, expires at the end of the user session, when the browser is closed.
