1. Concept of Cookies
A cookie is a file that is downloaded to the user’s computer / smartphone / tablet when accessing certain web pages to store and retrieve information about the navigation that is carried out from said computer.
Technically, cookies are pieces of arbitrary data defined by the web server and sent to the browser. The browser returns them to the server without modification, thus reflecting a state (memory of previous events) in HTTP transactions, which would otherwise be independent of that state.
Cookies specifications suggest that browsers must support a minimum number of cookies or a minimum amount of memory to store them. In particular, it is expected that a browser will be able to store at least 300 cookies of 4 kilobytes each and at least 20 cookies per server or domain.
The server that sets the cookie can specify a deletion date, in which case the cookie will be deleted on that date. A shopping site might want to help potential customers by remembering the things that were in their shopping cart, even if they close the browser without making the purchase and come back later, to avoid having to look for the products again. In that case, the server would create a cookie with a deletion date according to the desire of the website designer. If a deletion date is not defined, the cookie is deleted when the user closes his browser. Therefore, defining a deletion date is a way to make the cookie survive between sessions. For this reason, cookies with a deletion date are called persistent.
