What are cookies?

Latest Update: May 2, 2018

Cookies are small text files that a website may store on your web browser. They usually include anonymous information like session ID, website preferences, and information needed to make websites and online apps function properly. Cookies cannot collect or read information from your computer, and they are not able to download viruses or any other malicious content onto your device.

First-party cookies are cookies that are set by the website that you are visiting. A third-party cookie is one that is set by an application other than the website. Some examples of third-party cookies are web analytics cookies like Google Analytics, or marketing automation cookies like Pardot.
