What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small piece of data that a website asks your browser to store as text strings on your computer's hard-disk. All cookies are set with expiry dates which determine how long they reside on your browser. Generally, cookies can be:
- Rejected by default through cookie blockers and the settings on some browsers;
- Removed automatically after the lapse of the expiry date if they have not been blocked in the first place; or
- Deleted manually by the user through either the browser settings, a locally-installed cleanup software or by deleting the cookies file or folder of the specific browser that the user is using.
