An “Internet Cookie” (also known as “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” or “cookie”) is a small file, consisting of letters and numbers, which will be stored on the computer, mobile device or other equipment of a user allowing access to the Internet.

Once installed, cookies have a determined lifetime and remain “passive”, meaning that they do not contain software, viruses or spyware and will not access the information on the user’s hard drive.
A cookie consists of two parts: the name and the content or value of the cookie.
