What is a cookie?
A cookie is information sent to your computer by a website you visit. Cookies usually store your settings for a website, such as your preferred language or address.

Cookies can store a wide range of information, including personal information (such as your name or email). However, this information can only be saved if you enable it – websites cannot access information that you did not give them and cannot access other files on your computer.
