What is a cookie?
This cookie has no calories. Of course, it isn’t edible, either. Bummer, right?
Think of cookies like a cheat sheet for your computer for a particular website. It is a cheat sheet that contains concierge type information for you so that the next time you visit that specific domain (website) your experience runs a little bit smoother. The cookie, in reality, is a small text file that your web browser (Chrome, Safari, Explorer, etc.) stores on your computer or mobile device. When you revisit a particular website, the cookie is accessed and gives your browser that “cheat sheet” of helpful information (imagine visiting the concierge desk again and the concierge remembers things you like about your room).
Cookies were designed to serve us and make our lives easier. The information they contain provides helpful information such as the ability to save you from logging into a website every time that you visit; they may provide information to the website owner about performance and analytics, or they may remember your settings for a particular website. Cookies are website (domain) specific UNLESS a website has decided to share the information with others (third parties) in order to improve you experience. Some websites share very little with third-parties and other sites share with tens or hundreds of third-parties.
Feeling like today is the day that you want to dive in deep to understand cookies?
