What is a cookie?
A cookie is a file that is stored in your browser. It allows you to recognize your computer and gather information about which pages and features are visited with your browser. But cookies can not see who you are, what your name is, where you live or whether the computer is used by one or more people. A cookie can contain text, numbers or e.g. a date, but it is not a program and can NOT contain viruses.
How long are cookies stored?
The lifespan of a cookie can vary according to what the individual providers have defined. Some cookies disappear as soon as you close your browser window, others may exist for several years. The lifespan used by many providers is often 12 or 24 months on their advertising, statistics and content-related cookies. Note that a cookie is automatically renewed every time you visit the website and the lifespan is extended, so it is e.g. 24 months from the last visit to the website that a cookie is stored on your computer.
You can delete cookies on your computer at any time. See how to do it here: https://minecookies.org/cookiehandtering/
