What is a Cookie?
Most internet browsers’ term “cookies” refer to small bits of information that are sent from a website to your browser and vice versa and which are stored on your computer. Websites have no memory and so cannot remember data or a user's preferences on their own. Cookies allow browsers to store information from individual sites such as the display preferences you might have set. They are entirely specific to you and are used to keep a record of how you use a website and any preferences that you may have set. They use a special session ID to identify who you are, so that no personal information is ever exchanged.
Depending on the use, cookies can be stored on your computer for different lengths of time. Session cookies will remember you for the length of time you have a browser open and are looking at a site, but are deleted when you close the browser. Persistent cookies are not deleted when the browser is closed but will continue to remember you for a set amount of time.
Why are they used?
Cookies can be used for a variety of different reasons; to remember personal preferences on a website, to remember your name during a visit to a site, to store login status or to show you relevant information on your next visit. They are also used by companies to track your use of their website and see where you've clicked and how long you've been on a page, in order to improve the site performance and layout for future users.
Third party Cookies
Third party cookies differ from other cookies as they are set by a separate company to the website that is being visited. They allow these companies to see what you might have been looking at on a specific site, and use this information to show you relevant data on other sites that they are linked to. They are also used by social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter to allow you 'Like' or tell your friends about the site.
Cookies used on Towncourt Homes site never store any personal information and they cannot infect or install anything on your computer.
