A cookie is a file that is downloaded to the computer / smartphone / tablet user to access certain web pages to store and retrieve information about navigation that is made from such equipment.
Technically, cookies are arbitrary pieces of data defined by the web server and sent to the browser. The browser returns to the server unchanged, reflecting a state (memory of past events) in HTTP transactions that otherwise would be independent of the state.
Cookies specifications suggest that browsers must support a minimum number of cookies or a minimum amount of memory to store them. Specifically, it is expected that a browser is capable of storing 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 removed on that date. A shopping site might want to help potential customers remembering the things he had in his shopping cart, even if they close the browser without making the purchase and return later to avoid having to search for new products. In that case, the server would create a cookie deletion date according to the desire of the designer’s website. If a date of erasure is not set, the cookie is deleted when the user closes their browser. Therefore, set a deletion date is a way of making the cookie survive across sessions.
