2 What are cookies?
Cookies are small files stored in the browser on your computer. If you open another browser on your computer, the same cookies will not be transferred to such browser. A cookie will normally contain four parameters:

Name of the cookie
Unique ID for the cookie (this is connected to your browser)
For how long the cookie shall be stored in your computer
The domain the cookie is connected to

Due to the last parameter, it is generally very difficult to misuse a cookie. A cookie itself has little value until it is linked to a data base. As a result of this, it will have little or no value in case someone attempts to transfer it to another domain, as there will be no access to the relevant data base.

None of the cookies enables us to link information about your use to use as a person.

In order to store information of the visitors, Matomo uses a java script which in turn generates various cookies. These cookies are used to store information of the use-pattern on a web page and each movement. These cookies are:
