What is a cookie and what do they do?
A cookie may store information about how the site is used, which can be used for maintenance and improvement. They simply log numbers and provide grouped information about site navigation – this tells us if people can find what they want.
‘Session’ cookies, which are used for various reasons, and expire after your visit, remember for example, certain information as you navigate from one page to another so you don’t have to keep entering it.
Cookies which remember things for longer, from one session to the next, are called “persistent” cookies. Persistent cookies can do things like remember preferences and adjust content to suit you (personalisation).
