WHAT IS A COOKIE?
What is a cookie? A cookie is a small text file that is stored by the computer when a user visits a website. The text stores information that the website is able to read on the user’s subsequent visits. Some of these cookies are necessary for the proper functioning of the website, while others are useful for the user as they can safely store data such as the username or language. The advantage of having cookies installed on your computer is that you no longer need to fill out the same information every time you view a website that you have previously visited.
