What are cookies?

Cookies are a hidden, yet integral part of the online experience: As long as we’re using a browser, we’re also using cookies to customize our interactions, save login information, and personalize our experience on a website.

Cookies are bits of data that are sent to and from your browser to identify you. When you open a website, your browser sends a piece of data to the web server hosting that website. This data usually appears as strings of numbers and letters in a text file. Every time you access a new website, a cookie is created and placed in a temporary folder on your device. From here, cookies try to match your preferences for what you want to read, see, or purchase.

Cookies can serve two purposes: authentication and tracking. Authentication cookies save a user’s information when they log into a website while tracking cookies record your web usage and save information about your “session,” i.e. your time on a website. They can track pages you visit and personalize your searches, displaying custom content tailored to your interests.
