2.    What is a cookie?

Cookies are used on almost every website and the use is often necessary to provide the services of the website.

A cookie is a small text file which is stored on the user's IT equipment (such as a PC, tablet, smartphone, etc.) allowing the website to recognise the equipment. Cookies may for instance be used for preparing statistics of how the users use of the website and for optimisation of website contents. Cookies are passive files that cannot collect information stored on your device nor carry computer viruses or install malware. 

Some cookies are placed by websites (third parties) other than the one stated in browser's address line (the URL). The contents of such cookies may be of a general nature, but they may also, for example, be analytical tools or embedded comment fields. This means that cookies are stored from parties other than the one that owns the website.

Some cookies are created temporarily and expire at the end of the user session when the browser is closed (session cookies). Other cookies are stored on the user's IT equipment for a longer period of time (persistent cookies). When the user revisits a website, new session cookies will be placed in the temporary memory, whereas persistent cookies will be renewed.
