General information about cookies
A cookie is a data file that websites store on the user's computer, so that they can recognize the computer during the user's next visit to the website. Cookies are sent back and forth between the browser and a web server and include, among other things, information about how the website is used.

Cookies can be either first-party cookies or third-party cookies. First-party cookies are allocated by the page the user visits. Third-party cookies are allocated by a third party (e.g. advertisers with content on a certain page) that has elements embedded in the page the user is visiting.
