Cookies sound tasty but when it comes to computers they can cause a bit of concern as they are mentioned on just about every website you land on. That’s because every website out there needs them to function well.
But what are they? And how do they affect you?
Cookies are tiny files of data that a website transfers to your computer’s hard disk temporarily for record-keeping purposes. They allow websites like mine to track basic data to understand how the website is working, what visitors are doing and ensure everything is working as it should. This allows the website owner to access information such as how many visits a page has had, and whether people decided to hang around to read more or disappear and never return. So its all helpful stuff.
