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 will in itself have 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.
