WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are tiny text files that can be placed on your computer or mobile device that uniquely (but anonymously) identify your browser or device. They are unable to search your computer in any way, they cannot introduce viruses to your computer, and they do not contain personal identifying information about you (basically they are nothing to be afraid of).
WHAT ARE COOKIES USED FOR?
Cookies can also be used for online advertising. In collecting basic information gathered by the cookies, online advertisers can make informed guesses about your demographic and then target ads specifically to your interest. In other words, if you visit a site about watches, it may drop a cookie on your computer, so the next webpages you visit may then contain ads about watches.
WHAT TYPES OF COOKIES ARE USED?
There are generally four categories of cookies: “Strictly Necessary,” “Performance,” “Functionality,” and “Targeting.” The Online Advertising Guide routinely uses three of these types of cookie: “Strictly Necessary,” “Performance,” and “Targeting.”
At the time of this writing, here is some information available about each cookies category:
