A cookie is a text string sent by a web server (for example, the website) to the user's Internet browser, which automatically saves it on the user's computer and automatically sends it back to the server each time the site is accessed. Each cookie contains different data such as, for example, the name of the server it comes from, a numeric identifier, etc. Cookies can remain in the system for the duration of the session (i.e. until the browser used for web navigation is closed) or for longer periods, and may contain a unique identifier code. By default, almost all web browsers are set up to automatically accept cookies. However, each web browser allows cookies to be restricted and deleted (for more information refer to the section in this information notice on “How to enable, disable or delete cookies”). Remember, however, that disabling or deleting cookies may impede the optimum use of some areas of the site or compromise the use of services requiring authentication.
