A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. When you visit our website, the file is added and the cookie helps to analyze web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
There are various types of cookie and it’s possible to specify whether all, some or no types of cookies can be saved on the computer. If no type of cookie is accepted, it may be that some websites cannot be seen and personalization functions cannot be used (eg. for displaying local news, weather forecasts, stock market prices).
A cookie is a file created by an Internet site for the purpose of storing in the system information on the user, such as preferences shown by the user while exploring a site. If, for example, a user searches the time of a flight on an airline’s website, the site may create a cookie containing the user’s itinerary. Or the cookie may contain a record of the pages visited on the site. Such information will be used by the site to personalize the display that will be presented to the user on the next visit.
Information on personal identity may also be used in cookies. Information on personal identity can be used to identify or contact a person. For example, the name, e-mail address, home or office address or phone number. In any case, a website may only access information provided personally by the user. For example, the site cannot obtain the e-mail address unless the user provides it directly, nor can it access other information on the user’s computer.
Cookies saved on a computer may only be read by the website that created them. The files that contain them, in fact, have a name consisting of the URL of the website that created them.
Permanent and temporary cookies
A permanent cookie stays stored as a file on the computer even after closure of the browser and may be read by the website that created it when the user next visits the site.
A temporary cookie only stays stored for the duration of the current session and is removed by the computer on closure of the session: such closure may be provoked by a specific command, by the closure of the browser or the use of an URL other than the one of the site that generated the cookie.
