What are cookies? #
Wikipedia defines cookies as follows: A small piece of data stored on the user’s computer by the web browser while browsing a website. Cookies were designed to be a reliable mechanism for websites to remember stateful information (such as items added in the shopping cart in an online store) or to record the user’s browsing activity (including clicking particular buttons, logging in, or recording which pages were visited in the past). They can also be used to remember pieces of information that the user previously entered into form fields, such as names, addresses, passwords, and payment card numbers.
I consciously refrain from using tracking, marketing, or any other commercial cookies. Simply put: your visit to my website is completely anonymous.
