What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file, which contains information and is stored on the user's computer while visiting a web site. There are two types of cookies. One is permanent and is stored permanently on the user's computer even after the user has left the web site in question and turns of the web browser. The other cookie is a so called "session cookie" and is stored on the user's computer during the Internet session. When the user turns of the web browser, the session cookie will be removed from the user's computer.

Technically, the cookies are used to maintain the communication and exchange of information between the user's computer and the server, on which the web site is located.
