What are cookies?

An HTTP cookie (also called web cookie, Internet cookie, browser cookie, or simply cookie) is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored on the user’s computer by the user’s web browser while the user is browsing. 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).

A cookie typically contains:

  • the name of the cookie;
  • the name of the server (website) the cookie was sent from;
  • the lifetime of the cookie;
  • a value – usually a randomly generated unique number.

There are two main types of cookies:

Session (or transient) cookies: These are set and exist for the duration of your visit to a specific website and are removed when you finish. They recognise you as you move, and navigate between, the different website pages so that you do not need to re-enter who you are and often can help to maintain your security.

Persistent (or permanent) cookies: These remain on your computer until they expire or are deleted. Many persistent cookies have automatic deletion dates to help ensure your computer doesn’t get overloaded with cookies. Persistent cookies will often retain previously entered information to ease and simplify subsequent data input. For example: your login user ID or email address.

In this website GuideDolomiti uses both types of cookies to simplify and ease a user’s journey and experience.

Cookies can also be 1st (first) or 3rd (third) party cookies:
1st party: These are owned and created by me for the website you’re viewing.
3rd party: These are owned and created by an independent company. Usually this is a company partnering to provide services to me as owners of the website.

This site use both my own (first-party) and partner companies’ (third-party) cookies to facilitate and support a simpler and more secure website experience for my users.
