A cookie is a text file that may be saved, subject to your choices, on a dedicated space of the hard disk of your computer, when viewing a website. It contains the name of the server that filed it, an identifier in the form of a unique number and possibly an expiry date. Each website can access the cookies that it has filed on a computer to read, edit, and save the data they contain.
