What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file stored by a server in the terminal (computer, telephone, etc.) of a user and associated by your browser with a web domain (i.e. in most cases with all the pages of a single website). This file is automatically sent back during ulterior contacts with the same domain (as defined by the french national authority). They can be used to store useful information during your navigation, so you don’t have to log in at each new page, or to memorize the content of a shopping cart for example. On some websites, cookies can also record information related to the visitor’s behavior such as the language chosen, the number of pages visited, or the duration of the visit.
