What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file that a website stores in the user's browser. Cookies facilitate website use and browsing, and are essential for internet function, providing countless advantages for providing interactive services.
Cookies are used, for example, to manage user sessions (reducing the number of times you have to enter your password), to improve services, or to adapt content of a website to your preferences.
There are session cookies, which are erased once the user leaves the web page that generated them, and persistent cookies, which remain on your computer until a specified date.
There are also first-party cookies, which are managed by the domain the user accesses and from which the user requests a specific service (in this case, iDISC domains) or they can be third-party cookies, which are sent to the user's computer from a different domain than the one accessed.
