- What is a cookie?
A cookie is a collection of data in an industry standard that a web page transfers to your computer, temporarily, to allow content to be adapted to the user. For this purpose, cookies collect information about your online behavior.
A cookie is a small file containing a text consisting of a string of letters and numbers (information), often coded, which uniquely identifies your computer, mobile terminal, or other equipment of a user from which it is accessed the internet but may also contain other information. A cookie consists of two parts: the name and the content or value of the cookie. Moreover, the lifetime of a cookie is determined.
A cookie module is a file that is placed / downloaded on the device you use when you access a website, through the request issued by the web server to a browser (e.g.: Internet Explorer, Chrome), which allows the use of the functionalities of the Company's websites recording the navigation of the website, so that when you access the website again, it can present tailored options based on the information stored about your last visit.
A cookie is completely "passive" (it does not contain software, viruses - cookies use plain text formats, they are not made up of pieces of code so they cannot be executed or self-running; they cannot duplicate or replicate on other networks to run or replicate again - or spyware and cannot access information on the user's hard drive), they only allow the collection of information about user behavior (basically, which web pages they visit and when ).
In other words, the cookie module can be seen as an identification card of the Internet user, which notifies the website every time the user returns to that website.

- Purpose of cookies
Cookies can ensure a faster and easier interaction between users and websites. For example, when a user authenticates on a certain website, the authentication data is stored in a cookie module; afterwards, the user can access that website without having to log in again.
In other cases, cookies can be used to store information about the activities carried out by the user on a certain web page, so that he can easily resume those activities when he accesses the website later. Cookies tell the server which pages to show the user, so that the user does not have to remember this or navigate the entire website from the beginning. Thus, cookie modules can be assimilated to "bookmarks" that tell the user exactly where he was on a website.
Similarly, cookies can store information about products ordered by the user on an e-commerce website, thus making the concept of a "shopping cart" possible.
