What is a cookie?
An HTTP cookie, web cookie, browser cookie, or simply, a cookie is a small piece of data that a server sends to the visitor’s web browser. It is stored in the user’s device as a simple text file and the browser sends it back to the server when requested.
Cookies can be read by the website on a user’s subsequent visits. The information stored in a cookie may relate to the user’s browsing habits on the web page, or a unique identification number so that the website can identify the user on his return visit.
Cookies can improve the browsing experience throughout the user’s visit and even on repeat visits by saving settings for the various elements of the website.
The information collected in this way enables EBH to understand the use of its website, including the number of visitors it has, the pages viewed per session, time exposed to particular pages, etc. This information helps EBH to provide visitors with a better experience.
