What are (Web) Cookies and How Do Marketers Use Them?

What are (Web) Cookies and ...

If you’ve spent enough time online, you’ve probably heard of the term “cookies” before. But what does it mean? A cookie, also known as HTTP cookies or web cookies, is a code snippet added to a web browser when a user visits a certain website and consents to the website’s use of cookies. The user’s browser then stores that code over a predetermined time set by its creators or until a user deletes it, changing how browsers interact with certain websites.
So, how do you know when cookies are in action? If you’ve ever experienced these encounters, that’s how you know:
  • Returned to a website where you’re automatically signed in.
  • Found items still in your shopping cart.
  • Saw the physical store location you picked last time on an e-commerce site you’ve been on before.
  • Discovered the product you were looking at during another session advertised in your email or on another website.
  • Checked out a purchase with your payment and shipping preference already stored and selected.
