A cookie contains some anonymous information such as a unique identifier, the website name and some digits and numbers. It is used to record your online behaviour and preferences. Local or HTML5 storage is like a browser cookie as the data is stored in your browser. Unlike cookies, however, the storage limit is greater and data is not transferred to the website server. This allows usage and preference data (alongside the unique ID usually stored in a cookie) to be stored locally in your browser rather than on other systems and servers. These terms describe a type of technology used on web pages and mobile apps to better understand how you interact with a website or application. Usually this is in the form of a small transparent image file or a line of code which records, for example, which web pages you visited or elements of a page you viewed, when and for how long, and whether you viewed and/or clicked on an ad. They may also be used to target advertising on the web page you are viewing. These tracking technologies are often used in conjunction with cookies.
Cookies record your online identity and remember your online behaviour and preferences. For example, cookies may capture the following information. Browser information: browser type, language and history; Device information: IP address, device make, device model, device operating system/version, and data connection type; Internet service provider information; and Interaction information: domain name, referring website address, date/time of website visit, page view data, search keywords, referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, geolocation data, click data, types of ads viewed.
