About cookies and A Different League
What is a cookie?
A cookie, also known as an HTTP cookie, web cookie or browser cookie, is a small file of letters and numbers downloaded on to your computer when you access websites. It is stored in a file on a user’s computer and allow a website to recognise that computer. A cookie itself does not contain or collect information. However, it can help a website deliver a more user-friendly service. A cookie typically contains:
- The name of the server the cookie was sent from
- The lifetime of the cookie
- A value - usually a randomly generated unique number
- The website server which sends the cookie uses this number to recognise you when you return to a site or browse from page to page. Only the server that sent a cookie can read, and therefore use, that cookie.
