WHAT IS A COOKIE?
A cookie is a file that is downloaded to the user’s computer / smartphone / tablet when accessing certain web pages to store and retrieve information about the navigation that is carried out from said equipment.
Technically, cookies are arbitrary pieces of data defined by the web server and sent to the browser. The browser returns them to the server unmodified, thus reflecting a state (memory of previous events) in HTTP transactions, which would otherwise be independent of that state.
The cookie specifications suggest that browsers must support a minimum number of cookies or a minimum amount of memory to store them. Specifically, a browser is expected to be able to store at least 300 cookies of 4 kilobytes each and at least 20 cookies per server or domain.
The server that sets the cookie can specify a deletion date, in which case the cookie will be deleted on that date. A shopping site may want to help potential customers by remembering the things that were in their shopping cart, even if they close the browser without making the purchase and come back later, to avoid having to search for the products again. In that case, the server would create a cookie with a deletion date as desired by the website designer. If a deletion date is not defined, the cookies are deleted when the user closes his browser. Therefore, setting a delete date is one way to make the cookie survive between sessions. For this reason, cookies with a deletion date are called persistent.
