What is a Cookie

A cookie is a piece of information that is saved to the hard drive of your computer or mobile device. It has the ability to remember that you have visited a website previously and retains information about the configuration of your computer mobile device.  This improves your website browsing experience by storing information and thus avoids repeating requests for you to input the same data over and over again.

Cookies come in two types and are known as either persistent or session cookies. A persistent cookie has a set expiry date and will remain valid until that date is reached (unless deleted by the user earlier); a session cookie expires when the user closes their computer’s web browser.
