What is a Cookie?
Cookies are activity files that allows the data controller to know the activity carried out, as a user and as a client, and that have the purpose of establishing metrics on the use of the same and the most visited content, commonly known as “the user experience”
What information does a cookie store?
Cookies do not usually store sensitive information about you, such as credit cards or bank details, photographs or personal information, etc. The data they keep is technical, statistical, personal preferences, personalization of content, etc.
The web server does not associate you as a person but rather your web browser. In fact, if you regularly browse with the Chrome browser and try to browse the same website with the Firefox browser, you will see that the website does not realize that you are the same person because it is actually associating the information with the browser, not with person.
