2. What is a cookie?

Cookies are used today in connection with virtually all websites and are, in many cases, necessary to provide services on the website.

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on the user’s IT equipment (PC, tablet, smartphone, etc.) so the equipment can be recognised. Cookies can be used to, for instance, compile statistics on users’ use of the website and optimise the content of the page. A cookie is a passive file and cannot spread computer viruses or other malicious programmes. Some cookies are placed by other parties (so-called third parties) than the one in the address bar (the URL) of the browser. It can be ordinary content, but also, e.g.,, analysis tools or embedded comment fields. This means that cookies are stored by parties other than the owner(s) of the website.

Some cookies are only stored on user’s IT equipment as long as the user has their browser open (session cookies). Other cookies are stored for a longer period of time (persistent cookies). When the user revisits a website, session cookies are reset, while persistent cookies are typically renewed.
