What information does a cookie store?
Cookies do not usually store sensitive information about you, such as credit cards or bank details, photographs, your ID or personal information, etc. The data they keep is of a technical nature, personal preferences, personalization of content, etc. The web server does not associate you as a person but with your web browser. In fact, if you regularly browse using Internet Explorer and try to browse the same website with Firefox or Chrome, you will see that the web does not realize that you are the same person because it is actually associating the browser, not the person.

  • Advertising cookies: They show advertising based on your browsing, your country of origin, language, etc.

What are own and third party cookies?
Owncookies are those generated by the page you are visiting and those of third parties are those generated by external services or providers such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, etc.
