What are cookies
A cookie is a small file memorised on the computer by websites during browsing, useful for saving preferences and improving the performance of the websites. In this way, the user’s browsing experience is optimised. More specifically, they are small strings of text sent by a server to a web client (usually a browser) and then sent back by the client to the server (without undergoing changes) every time the client accesses the same portion of the same web domain.
