Delete Computer Cookies

What are computer cookies


A cookie is a piece of data which often includes an unique identifier, that is sent to your browser from a web site you visit, stores as a file on your computer, identifies you as a unique user and track your web usage. In certain cases (determined by the data in the cookie itself), the client returns the cookie to the server that originally delivered it. Persistent cookies are created in order to recognize users when they return to a website and enable the site to offer a customized experience tailored to that user - such as remembering your name and password on protected login pages.
When you are using the default cookie settings in your browser, you don't know when a web site is setting a cookie or when your browser is sending a web site's cookie back. However, you can set your preferences so that you will be asked before a cookie is set. For information on how to do this, see how to control cookies.

What are computer cookies and how do computer cookies work?

A cookie is a piece of data which often includes an unique identifier, that is sent to your browser from a web site you visit, stores as a file on your computer, identifies you as a unique user and track your web usage. In certain cases (determined by the data in the cookie itself), the client returns the cookie to the server that originally delivered it. Persistent cookies are created in order to recognize users when they return to a website and enable the site to offer a customized experience tailored to that user - such as remembering your name and password on protected login pages.
When you are using the default cookie settings in your browser, you don't know when a web site is setting a cookie or when your browser is sending a web site's cookie back. However, you can set your preferences so that you will be asked before a cookie is set. For information on how to do this, see how to control cookies.

Are there different kinds of computer cookies?

Yes, there are two commonly known types of cookies. One is called a "session" or "non-persistent cookie." It is a cookie that only exists as long as your session on the web site lasts and expires as soon as you leave the web site. It is used to facilitate your activities within that site.
The second type of computer cookie is a "persistent cookie". It exists beyond the life of your session and may live for months or years. A persistent cookie is created in order to recognize users when they return to a website. It enables the site to offer a customized experience tailored to that user - such as remembering your name and password on protected login pages.

What are temporary cookies (session cookies)?

Temporary cookies ("session cookies") are used by web sites to store temporary information, such as items in your shopping cart, etc. Temporary cookies ("session cookies") are removed from your computer after you close your browser.

What are persistent cookies?

Persistent cookies are used by web sites to store information, such as your sign-in name and password, so that you don't have to sign in each time you go to a particular site. Persistent cookies are not removed from your computer after you close your browser. Persistent cookies can remain on your computer for a long time.

Where are cookies stored?

Cookie data is stored on the user's hard drive. The filename is different for each platform. For example, on Windows machines, cookie data is stored in *.txt files.

Can cookies read information from a user's hard drive?

No. Cookies can only store data that is provided by the server or generated by an explicit user action.

How do web sites use computer cookies?

Most cookies are useful in web surfing. Some cookies ("session cookies") last only until you close your browser. This type of cookie is mainly used to remember choices that you make as you navigate through a web site.
Many sites leave cookies on your computer so that they recognize you when you return to their sites. These cookies ("persistent cookie") identify you so that options and preferences that you have chosen in the past are used for your current visit to the site. The Internet offers a wide variety of useful services such as free e-mail accounts, online forums, and e-commerce sites. The use of cookies is essential for these sites. Without cookies, for example, the sites would have no way to track the items that you placed into your virtual shopping cart as you browsed about the site.
But, in one of their malevolent forms, cookies from one web site might track your visits to a different web site. For example, most of the ads that you see on web sites do not come from the site that you are viewing, but from sites that provide ads to many sites. When the advertising site displays the ad, it can send cookies on your computer. This lets the advertising company track your web usage over a range of sites and profile your browsing habits.

How long do cookies live?

A web site may set an expiration date for a cookie it delivers. If no expiration date is specified, the cookie is deleted when the user closes the browser.

What are third-party cookies?

Computer cookies that are stored by a site other than the one you are visiting are called third-party cookies. Web sites sometimes use third-party cookies with transparent GIFs ("web beacons" or "web bugs") - special images that help sites count users, learn more about how visitors use the site, or customize your browsing experience.
If your browser allows to store site's cookie, it will return the cookie only to that particular site. Your browser will not provide one site with computer cookies set by another. A web site can only receive its own cookies, it can learn about your activities while you are visiting this site but not other sites.
But sometimes a web site displays content that is hosted on another web site. That content can be anything from an image to text or an advertisement. The other web site that hosts such elements also has the ability to store a cookie in your browser, even if you don't visit the site directly.
If you want, you can adjust your cookie preferences so your browser will not accept cookies from third-party or advertising companies.

What are first-party cookies?

First-party cookies come from the web site that you're viewing. First-party cookies can be persistent cookies or temporary cookies (session cookies). Web sites use these cookies to store information so they cab recognize you the next time you go to the web site.

Can computer cookies be harmful?

Most cookies are harmless. They recognize you so that options and preferences that you have chosen in the past are used for your current visit to the site.
But, in one of their malevolent forms, cookies from one web site might track your visits to a different web site. For example, most of the ads that you see on Web sites do not come from the site that you are viewing, but from sites that provide ads to many sites. When the advertising site displays the ad, it can send cookies on your computer. This lets the advertising company track your Web usage over a range of sites and profile your browsing habits.

Should I disable all cookies (block all cookies)?

Of course if you disable cookies (block all cookies) it can help protect your privacy. But some websites require cookies and, if you choose not to allow cookies to be saved on your computer, it might limit your experience on some web sites. You can allow cookies for web sites that you trust. For more information read how to enable cookies/disable cookies
