The cookie contains a unique code that can be used to recognize your browser during your visit to the website ("session cookie") or during future repeated visits ("permanent cookie").

A website's server can only read the cookies it has set itself; it does not have access to any other information on your computer or mobile device.

The contents of a cookie typically consist of the name of the server that placed the cookie, an expiration date and a unique encrypted code.
