1. What are cookies?
    A cookie is a piece of data, which a website sends to your computer as a text file. The browser then stores this data and re-transmits it to the website server. When the user returns to the website, the server recognizes them with the help of the cookie.
    There are transient or session cookies and persistent or stored cookies. Session cookies are only stored from the moment a user visits a website and until they close the browser, whereas persistent cookies remain stored even after the user has closed the browser. Persistent cookies remain stored for a longer period of time, which can span from a few days to a few weeks or even years.
