A cookie is a collection of data stored on the hard disk of your terminal (computer, tablet, mobile phone) via your browser when you visit an online service. Cookies are widely used by websites. They allow sites to function as intended, improve the browsing experience and provide certain information, notably audience measurement, to the site owners.

2. What types of cookies do we use and how do we use them?
