What are cookies and for how are they used

A "cookie" is a small text file from a website created on the user's computer when they access a site for the purpose of storing and transporting information. Cookies are sent by a web server (which is the computer which is running the website visited) to the user's browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) and stored on the user's computer. They are resent to the website when the user makes later visits. Some operations may not be executed without the use of cookies, which, in some cases, are therefore technically necessary. In other cases, the site uses cookies to facilitate browsing by the user or to allow them to use the services that have been specifically requested. Cookies can remain in the system for long periods of time and can also contain a unique ID code. This allows websites that use them to keep track of the user's browsing of the site for statistical or advertising purposes, i.e., to create a personalised profile of the user starting from the pages he or she has visited and then show and/or send him/her targeted advertising (so-called Behavioral Advertising).
