What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device and can identify a web-browser on that computer or mobile device. Cookies can be used for a wide variety of purposes. For instance, user-preferences cookies allow a website to store what language and font-size a person using a particular web-browser prefers so they don’t have to enter those choices the next time they visit the website. Cookies may be set by the website you visit (“first-party cookies”) or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide website analytics (“third-party cookies”).

Websites may also contain other tracking technologies such as “web beacons” or “tracking pixels,” which can be used for similar purposes as cookies. They are often used in conjunction with cookies, but they are not stored on your computer in the same way.

There are many websites around that describe what cookies are and how they are used on the internet. Although PDT does not endorse the following websites or their content, you may be able to learn more about cookies from aboutcookies.org, allaboutcookies.org, and whatarecookies.com.
