Cookies, what are they?

Cookies are placed on your computer by websites. When visiting a website using your smartphone or tablet, cookies are placed on them. But what are cookies anyway? Cookies are small text files that your browser (the program you are visiting with Internet, so eg. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox or Safari, etc ...) can be retrieved and read when you visit a particular website. The information contained in these text files depends on the details of the person who has made the cookies. If you are on a website for example, and you leave your personal information, there may be a cookie that automatically fills your data at a repeat visit to this website. This will create a cookie on your computer that contains personal information.

Since cookies are text files, they are not a direct threat to your computer. For example they can not contain viruses and cookies will not affect the system of your computer. However, they may contain sensitive information and that is why an owner of a website on which cookies are used, should inform you. The cookies often contain a unreadable computer code. You can, when you open such a file on your computer, sometimes not see what information is stored in this cookie. This information is often stored in the database of the website you visit.

Differences in cookies

Direct and indirect cookies. There are two different types of cookies, namely direct and indirect cookies. Direct cookies are cookies that are set by the website you visit on your website. These include cookies that remember your personal or login information. We call these cookies first-party cookies. Another example of this is a cookie that is created to hold your items in a shopping cart from a store.

Indirect cookies are cookies that other websites, than the one you are visiting, so a third party, place on your computer. An example is a program like Google Analytics, that maps the visits and use of the site. The owner of a website can make use of such a program to see for example how often his website is visited. Indirect cookies are called third-party cookies.

The duration of a cookie: Cookies have different durations. Some cookies are deleted immediately after closing a certain webpage. Other cookies have a longer duration. The "lifetime" of the cookie is determined by its author. Cookies can remain many years on your computer if you do not remove them. If you want information on removing cookies, you may consult the Internet. There is enough information to be found about removing cookies.

Tracking Cookies: Tracking cookies are cookies that actually make the most privacy threats. These are often indirect cookies, or third-party cookies. These cookies track you across multiple websites on the internet and build a profile of you, which can be used for example to show ads. Maybe you have noticed that you have searched for something on Google and then got to see when visiting another website ads that were related to your search. This is an example of a tracking cookie.
