The definition of a cookie


Cookies are small temporary files created on your device (computer, mobile phone, tablet, etc.) when you visit a website. They allow the website to store your information, to save your preferences or to recognize you from previous visits, for example.

When a website creates a cookie on your device, it stores the following:

  • The address (domain) of the website that created the cookie.
  • The duration of the cookie (this can range from a few minutes to many years).
  • The cookie contents.

You can configure your web browser to block the use of cookies by certain websites at any time. You can also delete previously stored cookies.

Local storage means that a file created by a website is stored on your device. Cookies are just one example of this. It is important to know about them to be able to block them or delete the data that they store:

  • Browser local storage. Some websites use local storage known as “sessionStorage” and “localStorage” to store information. “sessionStorage” is automatically erased when you close your browser. You need to clear your browsing history to delete “localStorage”.
  • Flash local storage (“Flash Local Shared Objects”). Flash is a browser plug-in used to add interactive and multimedia content to websites. Flash can store data on your device.
  • Silverlight local storage (“Isolated Objects”). Silverlight is a browser plug-in used to add interactive and multimedia content to websites. Silverlight can store data on your device.
  • A web beacon is a tracking method that embeds an image into a website. Your access is tracked when your browser connects to the image server in order to download it. Sometimes web beacons are so small or transparent, you don’t know they are there.
