What are cookies?
It is simply a small file which is stored on your computer containing information about your visit.
It may be to collect statistics, so that the owner of the web page can follow the number of visitors. Some cookies track which commercials have been shown, they are called tracking cookies. And it is important to remember that many free web pages can only exist if they collect advertising revenues.
Statistics and tracking cookies have to be deleted manually.
There may also be session cookies. They are used to keep track of your current visit and may remember your log-in settings.
Session cookies are deleted automatically when you close the browser.
What good do cookies do?
A statistics cookie can give the owner of the web page many technical and geographical details. This means that the owner gets to know which browser, screen/monitor or cell phone has visited the page and from which city and what time. This is very useful information for developing the page. But stay calm – a cookie does not give any information about you as a person.
If session cookies were not there, you would have to log in to every single page when user name and password are requested. They simply track that you have logged in.
Cookies are also used when you shop online e. g. to ensure that your goods end up in the shopping basket. Very practical!
