What Cookies are

Cookies are small pieces of data – usually text files – placed on your computer, tablet, phone or similar device when you use that device to access our Service. You can think of cookies like notes. Every time you visit a site, that site puts a note on you so they can keep track of how many times you’ve visited, how long you’ve spent there, and what you’ve done.

Typically, a cookie holds: the name of the website that it has come from; how long the cookie will stay on your computer or phone; and a value (usually a randomly generated unique number). The length of time stored depends on the cookie, but this is generally between a few minutes and up to two years.
