What is a cookie? A cookie is a small piece of code stored in a user’s browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox etc.). Whenever a user visits a website, cookies anonymously track their behaviors on that site and begin putting together a unique profile of that user. Over time, and across many websites, users accumulate numerous cookies, and develop comprehensive online behavioral profiles which can then be targeted.
