I. What are “cookies” and local storage of data (“cookies” and similar technologies)?
“Cookies” are small text files, which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit websites. Domain owner’s cookies (first-party cookies) are those that are determined by the website you visit. Third-party cookies are those that are used by other domains, different from the website you are visiting.
Similar to “cookies”, the technology for local storage in case that such a thing is used, allows the websites to store information on a computer or a mobile device. Local storage is most often permanent and, unlike cookies, local storage data is not automatically transferred over the Internet whenever the website that stores it, is visited.
