What are Cookies?

A cookie is a piece of data that is stored onto your computer when you visit a website. Almost all websites use cookies for a number of reasons.

Some of the most common uses of cookies are:

  • As a "required cookie" for example to process an order on an e-commerce website. Without cookies it is difficult to track the ordering of items from one page to another and determine what you have put in your basket.
  • As a "third party cookie" for example Google Analytics is often used by website owners to record visitor details. This information is usually analysed by a web developer who then passes the findings on to the website owner. Google Analytics is also used as a tool in Search Engine Optimisation.
