10. How cookies are managed ?

1. Cookies used
What is a cookie ?
A cookie is a small file stored on your computer’s hard drive at the request of the server managing the website visited. It contains information on the navigation carried out on the pages of the site. Cookies deposited during a visit to the website are intended to ensure its optimal operation by retaining information on the Internet user for the duration of his session, to enable the establishment of statistics on audience measurements and the issue of advertisements tailored to your interests, and to improve the interactivity of the site via social networks.
Concretely, how do cookies work?
In your computer it is the browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc.) that manages cookies. It is the browser that receives the order to save them from the server (the principle of cookies is part of the HTTP protocol used for exchanges on the Web). It is the server that records them and it is also the server that controls them, according to the wishes of the Internet user. One can thus prohibit any recording of cookies (but the access to many sites, or at least the use of their functionalities, is then impossible). Browsers make it possible to find them, to list them and even to delete them. Even if you do not delete them, they will disappear because they have an expiration date, several months or the “end of session”, i.e. the moment you leave the site you were visiting.
