1. What are cookies?
Cookies are used to personalise your experience when using a website and to maintain the integrity of your browsing activities. An HTTP cookie (usually just called a cookie) is a simple computer file made of text. A cookie is sent in conjunction with a response to a request that you make to our server. The browser reads this cookie, as well as the rest of the response. The cookie itself is our server asking the browser to remember the data until later. As long as the browser continues to store the cookie, it will send it back with every request to the originating server.
